I still remember each and every frame of O Sanam, the first song of Lucky Ali that toped the charts when i was in school. Since then i have never missed even a single album this maverick has produced. I was lucky to meet him personally in one of his live concert (i was interviewd by Aaj Tak for this :) ).
Some facts: Very few people know that his full name is Maqsood Mehmood Ali the son of the legendary actor Mehmood. Born to a bong/punjabi mother who was the sister of the yet another legendary actor Meena Kumari.
His first wife is Meaghan Jane McCleary also known as Maymunah who accepted Islam after marrying Lucky Ali. She has acted in the video O Sanam from his first album Sunoh. Lucky Ali has two children from his first wife - Ta'awwuz and Tasmia. His second wife, Inaya (maiden name Anahita). Originally a Parsi, she also accepted Islam after marriage. Lucky Ali has two children from his second wife, Sara and Raiyan.
Lucky and his father Mahmood shared a tempestuous relationship. Mehmood was a very busy actor in 1960s and 70s, and remained away from home for his shoots. Once, around the age of five when Lucky's mother came with him to receive Mehmood at the airport, Lucky didn't recognize his father and on seeing him said, "He's the film comedian Mehmood!" Lucky lived away from his family in a boarding school up in the foothills of the Himalayas in Mussoorie. Lucky's tryst with marijuana led Mehmood to write the script of the movie Dushman Duniya Ka (Enemy of the World).
The movie stars Ali's youngest brother,Manzoor. It is the story of the drug abuse of a young man called Lucky. In the end the young man kills his mother, destroys everything around him and is then killed by his father. Lucky differed with his father's vision and did not act in the movie. "I felt the story lacked hope," he said.However he sang his first song for a movie for the film.
Lucky's wanderlust has taken him many places. He has bred horses, been an oil rigger off the coast of Pondicherry in South India, is a farmer with a strong opinion on organic methods in farming. Music, singing and acting are his serious hobbies.
