Atif Aslam has set unprecedented examples in the music industry. 
He has successfully bridged the cultural gap between Pakistan and India contributing his talents to a number of hit songs in Bollywood. 

He has received more than 15 awards and distinctions and his profound love for music, dedication to his work and conviction has helped him win millions of hearts around the globe.

This song has become immensely popular since the release of the film with the music video having received over 46 million views since being posted in March.

Atif’s music is the kind of music that comes from the heart - from the raw and emotive sounds of his debut album Jalpari in 2004 (the album that launched his solo career), to the energetic and rocking Doorie (this album launched Atif into the international markets in 2006), to the evergreen Meri Kahani (taking listeners down a nostalgic memory lane in 2008). 

His music ranges from the romantic to crestfallen numbers, from peppy and catchy tunes to sober thoughtful songs. He has recorded to date around 116 songs.

With a tremendous Facebook following of 20 million, 1 million ardent Twitter followers and 3.8 million Instagram followers, Atif surpasses any other Pakistani celebrity in terms of popularity and international recognition.
