Muhammad Naseer: The man who knows Indo-Pak film music like the back of his hand
Naseer Bhai was more than just another face on television. Having memorised the lyrics of all Indian and Pakistani songs produced between 1950 and 1980, he was indeed a veritable encyclopedia of nearly three decades worth of music.
In an interview with The Express Tribune, he had revealed “I worked as a song recorder for nearly four decades to earn a living. This was during a time when there were no radios or tape recorders,” recalled Naseer, “I was young back then and my memory was quite sharp.”
Rest in Peace, Naseer bhai.
