Pakistani actor-singer Ali Zafar who sang a qawwali last week in Pakistan during an award show is likely to sing another one for a Punjabi film. The song was a tribute to Amjad Sabri, the Pakistani singer, who was shot dead in Karachi last June.
A filmmaker has requested the Tere Bin Laden actor to sing a qawwali for a Punjabi movie, according to a press release.
Ali will be seen singing the qawwali in a special sequence in the film. The Mere Brother Ki Dulhan actor will also have few dialogues in the scene, for which he is working on his pronunciation of the Punjabi language.
Zafar started his career as a music composer. He became popular with his single Channo from his debut album Huqa Pani which sold over five million copies worldwide.
Channo topped many music charts and earned Zafar the Lux Style Award for Best Music Album. Zafar also performs in tours, concerts and stage shows all over the world. He made his acting debut with a leading role in the 2010 film Tere Bin Laden. _ CINEWS
