Teaser of Fawad Khan's comeback song is out and it also features Atif Aslam!

Published: July 20, 2017

KARACHI    : If there is one thing Pakistanis were eagerly awaiting more than Shahid Afridi’s retirement from cricket, then it was Fawad Khan’s comeback to music. Once the front man of the iconic rock band Entity Paradigm and now the latest addition to the Khan legacy of filmdom, Fawad has teased us with a glimpse of what would it be like seeing him rocking the microphone after so long.

Fawad Khan to return to music with mega Pepsi project

In what is being termed as the first official teaser of the Pepsi Battle of the Bands, a bunch of young musicians are shown jamming in a dimly lit street as we see the image of Meesha Shafi walking into the frame in a white backdrop. Atif walks past them as a sports car screeches into the frame and Fawad steps out of the car in his latest, bulked up look.

The song is a mash-up of Do Pal Ka Jeevan and Alamgir’s Dekha Na Tha featuring Atif, Meesha Shafi and Atif Aslam on the vocals — albeit the teaser only features Atif’s voice. According to a press release, the teaser will serve as a tribute to two of the founding acts of Pakistani pop scene, Alamgir and Vital Signs — with founding member Shahi Hasan playing the guitars himself.

While Meesha and Fawad are a part of the jury that short-listed the final eight bands, we are still unsure whether Atif will be seen in the Battle of the Bands or not. While all participating bands have something distinct about their showcase, it was the deadly combination of jury members that actually stole the show.

None other so than our chocolate hero Fawad, who was joined by Aaroh front-man Farooq and the uber-talented Meesha Shafi. While all three of them brought a lot of experience and energy to the show, it was Fawad who actually stood out for his playful demeanour and occasional cruelty.

“Fawad had a ball during the show; it was almost as if he has found the lost connection with his rockstar persona. He could be seen around the set, jamming with upcoming musicians, crashing the drum kit and having a lot of fun,” sources told The Express Tribune in an earlier conversation.
