Mustafa Zahid, lead vocalist of the famous Pakistani band Roxen, is possibly the most featured singer from Pakistan across the border these days.
Last year, he contributed to three back-to-back films — Murder 3, Shootout at Wadala and Aashiqui 2. This year, his latest song is for the movie Raagni MMS 2 and has released all over India. The film’s music is already making a lot of waves with its hit number Baby Doll. While the soundtrack primarily features Yo Yo Honey Singh, Mustafa Zahid has delivered a hit love song Maine Khud Ko for the film. The melodious track, sung by the Pakistani rock artiste and directed by Pranay M Rijia, has Sufi influences in it.
Mustafa Zahid has enjoyed success across the border since his first song for a Bollywood soundtrack in 2006, with his hit single Tera Mera Rishta.
