Many of the Pakistani people
may not be aware of the fact that Pakistan has the largest pop industry
in Asia. Besides, Pakistan is blessed with talent and when we talk about
it is hard to stop yourself picking up one of the best Pakistani pop
song until at present. This is because there have been a number of such
hit songs in past decades that it virtually becomes difficult to choose
or rate anyone as the best. Some very famous pop songs that still rock
include the likes of "Na tou aayege”, "Dil Dil Pakistan”, "Hawa Hawa ea
Hawa”, "Mehendi ki Raat”, "Ankhain Milanay Walay”, "Ankhon ki Sagar”,
"Jazba Junoon” and etc.
It may be just a bit too unfair not to
name the great singers who have a lion’s share in making the
above-mentioned songs popular. There would be hardly anyone who is not
familiar with the names of Nazia Hassan and her brother Zohaib Hassan.
It may not be wrong to say that they were really the pioneers of pop
singing in Pakistan. Presently, many new talented artists in Pakistan
are working hard to bring quality into Pakistani music. Besides, some
private channels are also working to promote new artists. Many of our
singers are also crossing the forbidden Pak-India border to show their
talent by singing fabulous songs which are enjoyed alike by Pakistani
and Indian public.
There is a long list of Pakistani singers who
have shown their talent in other countries and have received remarkable
appreciation. Nevertheless, a name that has really made an impression
across the border and has truly introduced Pakistani singing talent
internationally is Atif Aslam. All those who belong to this young
generation must be more than just familiar with Atif Aslam songs. If you
go to the audio shops in Pakistan and even in India and ask the
shopkeepers to name their most selling albums; the name of Atif would
always be somewhere at the top.
If you just stand on the side of
the road and try to listen to the song being played in each and every
car that passes by it will be easier for you to have some clue about the
famous Pakistani singer. You will be surprised that every 5 out of 10
cars would be playing a song of Atif Aslam. The newly released song of
Atif Aslam Bol Ke Lab Azaad Hain Tere is expected be popular among the
fans same like his previous album, "Doorie” released in December 2006.
The album still sells like hot cakes in Pakistan and according to many
music lovers this has been the best of all his albums so far.
the music lovers, they always expect something new and exciting which
should serve as a source of entertainment for next many days. Hence, the
listeners of Atif are no different and they eagerly wait for a fresh
Atif Aslam album every year or whenever it is on cards. "Bol ke Lab
Azaad Hain Tere” by Atif Aslam & Peter Gabriel is featured
in the movie "The Reluctant Fundamentalist”. Directed by Mira Nair and
music by Michael Andrews, the movie is expected to rock in the Pakistani
cinemas. The movie is a political thriller film and is based on the
novel with a similar name by Mohsin Hamid.
