KARACHI: Two days after being teased by a 25-second promo, music lovers finally had a chance to witness Fawad Khan’s return to music alongside Atif Aslam and Meesha Shafi.

The music video to the trio’s rendition of a mash-up of Vital Signs’ Do Pal Ka Jeevan and Alamgir’s Dekha Na Tha was released on Saturday to build up hype for the upcoming Pepsi Battle of the Bands. A press release issued on Thursday said the song serves as a tribute to two of the founding acts of Pakistan’s pop scene. Shahi Hasan, one of the founding members of Vital Signs, has played guitars on the track himself.

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

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.

When Saif Ali Khan regretted turning down Fawad's role

“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.
