As Taher Shah continues to make waves around the world with his latest single Angel, rockstar Ali Zafar decided to cash in on his fame.
In his latest video, that has now gone viral, Ali can be seen narrating the lyrics of the second hit by the "singing sensation."
For a change, the singer-cum-actor didn't take a dig at the hit-maker. In fact, his dramatic rendition helps us understand Taher Shah's philosophical ideology behind the song, which was recently explained by him in his blog.
And the depth in La La La La...
Taher Shah pens blog to explain 'ideology' behind Angel
Ali later took to Twitter to share his sentiments saying: "Lived through Eye to eye. Couldn't resist this. My rendition of the Angel by Taher Shah."
Thank you Ali! It makes sense to us now.
Taher Shah’s website is the next best thing to Angel
And of course... every action has a reaction!

In an interview with a TV channel, Ali explained the reason behind his latest stint.
10 best Twitter reactions to Taher Shah’s ‘Angel’
When asked if he is impressed or depressed by the viral sensation, Ali said, "You are angel, I am angel, it's our job to be impressed by each other and pull out of depression. So, I had also let it out of my system to end my depression."
"I was passing through a garden with lush green trees and water springs. It was then when I realised that I am an angel too and also a part of the mankind. So, I need to play my part," Ali quipped while explaining the reason behind his "tribute".
Ali praised Taher Shah's efforts saying he is "impressed" by the way he has put his feelings in to the song.
"The concept of the video is quite impressive as well. It has been conceived while keeping three stages in mind."
"He can be seen flying alone and how he changes different costumes throughout the video, I haven't been and won't be able to present such thing in my entire career. I can never reach his level." Ali said.
In his concluding message to Taher Shah, Ali said, "Taher you are an angel and I am an 'ainjul'."

Am I the only one who finds Ali Zafar's parody a bit tacky? Ok then.— Sabahat Zakariya (@sabizak) April 12, 2016
Ali Zafar has made Taher Shah's Angel sound like a work of genius. Hahaha!— Aadil (@AadilPitafi) April 13, 2016
Did @AliZafarsays really cover Taher Shah or is this one of my super weird dreams where cats can speak? I'm into it, either way.— Maaham (@maahamaziz) April 13, 2016
Admit it or not, we all secretly wish we were Taher Shah!
