One of the biggest bands of the country, Junoon earlier announced that they will be reuniting once again in the spirit of Pakistan’s Independence Day. Fans have been eagerly waiting for the trio, which consists of Ali Azmat, Salman Ahmed and Brian O’Connell, to strum their magic once more since the band’s breakup 13 years ago.

To honour the country’s 71st Independence Day, Junoon is back with a back with one of their famous tracks Khudi, performed on Allama Iqbal’s heart-touching poetry.

While music lovers all across the country have memorised Iqbal’s poem by heart, Junoon’s latest video is sure to give you goosebumps. Kicking off with some youngsters working hard to achieve their goal, Khudi speaks to today’s generation and spreads the message of always aiming higher.

It’s no surprise that the reunion was much awaited for, however, it’s the country’s record holders featured in the video that add the oomph factor to the song. With Khudi, Junoon celebrates Pakistan’s finest such as Ronak Lakhani who was given the Sitara-e-Imtiaz for philanthropy, Shaheer Niazi – Pakistan’s youngest scientist, Laraib Atta – country’s youngest visual effects artist and Fakhar Zaman who was the first batsman from Pakistan to score a double century.

Watching the trio stir their charm on screen once again was a pleasant sight for sore eyes.
