Happily though, Rahat is not the only Pakistani to have been recognized by Filmfare this year. Shafqat has picked a nomination for Best Playback Singer (Male) as well for ‘Bin Tere’ (I Hate Luv Storys) and Adnan Sami Khan has gotten a nod for the same category, for his MNIK song ‘Noor-e-Khuda’ along with Shankar Mahadevan.
Shafqat Amanat Ali just recently lent his voice to the soundtrack of Akshay Kumar starrer Patiala House, and his last record Kyun Dorriyan is almost a year old now. Perhaps we will be hearing more from Shafqat soon, in terms of his own work? That would be something to look forward to. Meanwhile Adnan Sami Khan has been embroiled in personal troubles vis-à-vis his property in India being seized and his ex-wife charging into his house. The nomination has probably come at a good time, as a much needed boost.
What would actually be really interesting would be to hear the three stars collaborate on one song, as all have very distinctively strong voices and would make for a powerful experiment.
