Zoheb Hassan recently posted a picture with Anil Kapoor in London where the two share a table at a restaurant. The picture captioned, “Meeting up with a good friend in London after a long time.”
With his simple gesture, he shows how art is beyond political and geographical boundaries, as he sets an example for artists living in both India and Pakistan.
At a point in time when both the countries continue to ban each other’s films and artists, it seems that the two are leading their everyday lives outside the politicised warfare, without scandalising everything.
On the other hand, both Hassan and Kapoor have refused to age a bit. Hassan is 52-years-old and Kapoor is 60 plus and yet their looks don’t resemble the numbers.
Zoheb is a singer, songwriter, and producer, whilst his song chehra still makes thousands of hearts melt to the romantic melody and lyrics.
Zoheb and his sister Nazia Hassan, spent their childhood in Karachi as well as London and after the release of their first album, Disco Deewane, Nazia and Zoheb became the South-Asian subcontinent’s first pop icons. Together, the duo sold over 85 million records worldwide.
Given his international recognition, Zoheb has proved to be a mascot in promoting peace in times of severe political turmoil.
