Ali Zafar churns out melody for ‘Zindagi Gulzar Hai’

Multi-talented Pakistani artist, Ali Zafar who has gained much fame in the country and abroad with his work in Bollywood productions, has made a much anticipated come back to local entertainment industry with an original sound track for Hum TV’s new drama serial ‘Zindagi Gulzar Hai’. The serial, which will be aired every Friday night during the prime time slot stars Fawad Khan in the lead role as Zaroon, who has received much appreciation with the success of his drama ‘Humsafar’ as well as the lead vocalist of rock band Entity Paradigm. It is surprisingly pleasant to note that Ali Zafar did not have any reservations about lending his voice to another singer, belting out vocals to suit the energetic performance by Fawad Khan. Ali’s voice and style, more suited for the soft melody was chosen to sing the original sound track of ‘ZGH’, a duet with Hadiqa Kiyani, which has already garnered appreciation of television viewers, before the drama begins airing on November 30. The serial has a star studded cast with Samina Peerzada and Javed Sheikh along with Sanam Saeed, Mehreen Raheel and Ayesha Omar playing some of the other leading characters. Television critics say that the drama has a very good chance of being successful with a powerful storyline by Umera Ahmed and with Sultana Siddiqui returning to the director’s chair. pr
