But did you know that Ali had an unusual career in the music industry. Yes! unlike most other singers, Lucky Ali had a rather peripheral relationship with Hindi film music Industry.

Lucky Ali’s real name

Did you know that Lucky Ali’s real name is Maqsood Ali. But the Indian singer decided to go by his nickname Lucky because people used it much more than his real name.

Ali’s struggle to Bollywood

Before his career as a singer took off, Lucky Ali tried his hands at a number of odd jobs. From being a carpet-cleaner, to oil-rigger, horse-breeder and even an organic farmer, he has done it all. And at the age of 36, he came up with his debut album.

Lucky Ali’s turbulent love life

Lucky believes that as a practicing Muslim, he is allowed to marry at least four times in his lifetime. Lucky’s first wife, Meaghan Jane McCleary, was the same lady in blue who could be seen in Lucky Ali’s music video of O Sanam. Both married in 1996 and have two children, son Ta’awwuz and daughter Tasmia.

Later the singer came in touch with a Parsi girl named Anahita. She was a filmmaker and photographer and was known by the moniker Inaya. Both came closer when Lucky’s first wife was away in New Zealand and eventually they got married. Currently, she lives in Mumbai with their kids Sara and Raiyan.

The couple have a son named Dani, born in 2011. Later the couple called it quits and now the Indian singer is single, living in Goa.   

Goodbye to Bollywood

Born to legendary actor-filmmaker Mehmood, Lucky Ali made his breakthrough in Bollywood with two hit tracks in the 2000 movie Kaho Na… Pyaar Hai. Having sung memorable songs over a decade, Lucky distanced himself from Bollywood after singing Safarnama in 2015 movie Tamasha.

In 2017 during an interview, the singer-actor revealed the reason behind his decision. He said “Is jagah mein badtameezi bahut hai.” The singer also believes that Bollywood has changed and the kind of movies which are being made these days are not up to the mark as they are lacking inspiration and there’s nothing to learn from such movies.

Lucky Ali has acted in several movies and TV serials including Bharat Ek Khoj, Zara Hatke, Katha Sagar and The Dewarists. The 36 years-old then even ventured into acting with films like Kaante and Sur.
