KARACHI: Late last month, Salman Ahmad released a documentary titled Ansoo. to honour Junaid Jamshed (JJ). It became a viral celebration of the late singer’s life.
Following this, the Junoon guitarist also made a set of tweets hinting at some other new and exciting stuff coming our way.
Supporting his claim, Salman also tweeted that one of JJ’s last wishes was to see Junoon live again, which he would reveal today, on the day of JJ’s first death anniversary.
Later on, the musician tweeted, “It’s one of life’s great ironies that JJ will be instrumental in bringing together celebrated artists on a big musical platform in 2018.”
Speaking to The Express Tribune, Salman revealed, “In 2018, I am producing a unique Broadway-style show which will pay tribute to three legends, Nazia and Zoheb Hassan, Junoon and Vital Signs. I’ve already been in talks with Zoheb, JJ’s sons, Momina Mustehsan, Asim Azhar, Irtaash and a few others.”
According to the Sayonee hit-maker, the show will be a never-before- seen, audio-visual odyssey. “It will showcase the rich musical heritage of Pakistani superstars.”
Salman further stated, “I’m also speaking to Ali Azmat, Rohail Hyatt, Brian O’Connell and Shahi Hasan to come together for ‘unity’ and make 2018 a year of celebration.”
To honour JJ’s first death anniversary, the music composer added, “The only way I can fill the void created by his death is to follow my heart. JJ wanted me to continue to create music, to motivate and inspire people.”
“In 2018, I’ll be reaching out to my Junooni friends to spread some ‘Vital Junoon’ for the fans. Raat dhalni to hai aaney ujaley to hain (It’s going to be dark soon, but there will be light again).“
Needless to say, we can’t wait to see what Salman Ahmad and other celebrated musicians have in store for us.
