Who is he?
We first took notice of singer, songwriter and guitar player Bilal Khan on the stage of Coke Studio Season Four. He was unbelievably talented, undeniably gorgeous and absolutely unaware of both of these qualities. As he sang the lyrics to Tou Kia Hua, he seemed introverted, heartbroken and relatable. We wanted to kill the girl who had caused him so much pain. But ever since then, he’s more than just realised his worth and has been cashing in on his good looks and talent. Now he’s busy touring the world, being a brand ambassador for Levis and recording songs for popular dramas.
Why we love him
While he was still studying at LUMS, this hottie would sit underneath a particular tree on campus and pen lyrics and play the guitar for hours. We can only imagine what that would do to the hearts of all girls at LUMS — aren’t we all absolute suckers for a man who can serenade us?
What you might not know
He bought his first guitar when he was still studying for his ‘O’ levels and taught himself the instrument with the help of the internet. Besides his passion for music, he enjoys drawing comic strips and has an interest in graphic designing.
