Ali Azmat to play Dubai show with Shankar-Ehsan-Loy and Hrithik Roshan

What is better than Ali Azmat, the rockiest of rockstars in Pakistan unleashing his tunes to a packed audience in Dubai? Ali Azmat playing to the Dubai audience with "the brightest lights on the Asian music scene". Yes, Ali and the bright Asian lights will be playing at the Dubai Mega Mela come April and the rocker demands on his website ( that anyone who wishes to be there be "ready to rock".

You must be wondering who the dazzling stars that Ali speaks of are: it is none other than the Shankar-Ehsan-Loy musical tri-tet and, wait for it, Hrithik Roshan! We wish we could fly out and see this show because can you imagine how cool it would be to watch Hrithik do his thang to 'Mein Chala'? It will be like modern dance interpretation, only better.

On the other hand, we wonder if the Shankar-Ehsan-Loy presence will make Ali tone his act down, out of politeness, because these are three musicians with a very different take on 'rock'.

That said, this show will absolutely be one to watch for, whether in person or for a televised version, because the mix that comes out of this collaboration (if they play together at all) should be intriguing.
