Pakistani singer Atif Aslam, who is currently in the northern areas for the shooting of his upcoming music video Rafta Rafta, posted a short video of him listening to Indian singer Arijit Singh’s Hawayein.
The singer shared a video showing stunning locales from his car as Arijit Singh’s Hawayein played in the background. The visuals were perfectly complimented by Arijit’s song Hawayein, which was featured in Jab Harry Met Sejal.
Tagging the Indian singer, Atif wrote in the caption, “Imagine performing here for our fans.” He also praised Arijit for beautifully singing the track. Atif said “beautifully sung brother Arijitsingh.”
Atif has a huge fan following in India and Arijit has a massive fan-base in Pakistan. The duo, in 2017, had partnered for a song called Musafir for the film Sweetie Weds NRI. The song was composed by the young Palash Muchhal.
Musafir has four versions in the film, one of which features Atif and Arijit. “It’s a heart-touching and emotional track. I tried my best to bring out the dard in it,” said Aslam, in an interview with Mid-day.
Asked why he thought of choosing Singh and Aslam, Muchhal had shared, “They are both extremely talented musicians and my favourites, too. I have grown up listening to Atif Aslam and I love Arijit Singh’s voice. Both express pain and I needed that for Musafir.”
A couple of years ago, in a live Facebook chat, a fan asked Aslam who’s a better singer between him and Arijit, to which he sportingly replied, “Of course, Arijit!” He then went on to say, “If God’s kind to someone you should also respect them. Arijit has been blessed and people should respect him.”
