LAHORE: Members of the media fraternity had the opportunity to meet and greet the cast and crew of Bin Roye in Lahore. While Karachi got a sneak peek of the film’s soundtrack in the form of a medley, comprising of four songs Ballay Ballay, Chan Chariya, Teray Bina Jeena and Maula Maula at the recent Bridal Couture Week, Lahore got a chance to view exclusive videos of Tera Bina Jeena and Ballay Ballay.
Ballay Ballay is penned by Shakeel Sohail and composed and sung by Shiraz Uppal, featuring Indian playback singer Harshdeep Kaur, while Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Saleema Jawwad lent vocals for Teray Bina Jeena, composed by Sahir Ali Bagga and penned by Sabir Zafar. The official music launch will take place in Dubai on June 13.
Humayun Saeed, seated between Armeena Rana Khan and Mahira Khan, said, “I didn’t understand why there had to be a press conference in Lahore since we already had one in Karachi. But after coming down here, I’ve realised I was wrong. The excitement and the audience here have proved me wrong.”
Mahira, who was interrupted by a man pleading her to wait for his relative who was travelling from a distance to see her, said cinema owners need to promote films because that’s how they will be able to become profitable like those across the border. To a question about bringing playback singers from India, Mahira said that music transcends boundaries.
Sahir Ali Bhagga was pleasantly surprised with the way the video of the songs had turned out to be. He said, “Mahira and Humayun made the song like how it should be.” Revealing further details about Bin Roye, producer Momina Duraid said, “This is purely a Pakistani film meant to entertain Pakistani audiences.” However, the videos unveiled at the press conference were slightly reminiscent of Bollywood dance numbers.
