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 Pakistani Music, 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.
For 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.
