Actress-turned-filmmaker Pooja Bhat, who introduced Pakistani singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan to Bollywood with her 2004 movie Paap is ready with another rocking newcomer. Mariyam Unoosha, a singer from the Maldives, has been touted as the next big name in Bollywood music.

"After introducing Rahat Fateh Ali Khan to India through Man Ki Lagan I will now unleash the sheer brilliance of Unoosha from the Maldives," Pooja posted on her Twitter page. She went on to add, "Soon, Unoosha from the Maldives will create the same impact as Rahat did. This is not mere assumption. It is absolute conviction and belief."

Rahat Fateh Ali Khan became very popular in Bollywood after singing ‘Man Ki Lagan’ in the 2004 movie, and has since sung for many Hindi movies, and won several awards.
