Seems like Pakistanis will continue to slay in Bollywood! Saba Qamar's big Bollywood debut in Hindi Medium won big at the recent Filmfare Awards this year while local singers like Atif Aslam, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Farhan Saeed have been lending their voices for Indian songs for years.

Farhan's original track Tu Thori Dair was featured in Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor-starrer Half Girlfriend, for example. The song was sung as a duet for the movie, with none other than Bollywood nightingale Shreya Ghoshal.


Shreya just won the award for Best Female Vocalist for the same song at the Radio Mirchi Music Awards and didn't forget to mention Farhan when thanking everyone for it.

Taking to Twitter, the Bahara crooner wrote, "Thank you Mirchi music Award for the great honour. is super special to me. Thank you @ @ @ for making this beautiful song for me."



To this, Farhan humbly replied, "Congratulations! You deserve every bit of it!"



Farhan's version of the song came out in 2013. The video starred his now wife, Urwa Hocane and was in collaboration with ISPR, portraying the sacrifices of soldiers fighting at the border.
