Atif Aslam pays homage to Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan with ‘Dekhte Dekhte’

Atif

There’s no doubt when Atif Aslam meets Bollywood, magic is created – and of course, this time is no different.

Lending his signature voice in Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor’s Batti Gul Meter Chalu, the singer pays homage to Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s ‘Sochta Hoon Woh Kitne Masoom Thay’  as he croons to the wistful lyrics by the late maestro.

The video for ‘Dekhte Dekhte’ features the lead pair in a lovelorn situation as they reflect on life’s trials – while hinting at the song’s placement at a forlorn part in the film. That said, the song still doesn’t feel depressing despite its nature, thanks to the powerful lyrics and Atif’s strong vocals, which keep the song feeling upbeat at places.

Check out the song here:

Batti Gul Meter Chalu is set to release on August 31, 2018.
