Although there’s no surprise that Pakistani actress Mehwish Hayat can sing well, her latest Punjabi track, ‘Dil Saab Dil Babu’ only proves her mettle even more.
The music video for the song features Mehwish singing at Mian Yousaf Salahuddin’s – better known as Yousaf Salli – haveli in Lahore with a number of celebrities such as Ali Zafar and Ahmed Ali Butt in attendance. The actress croons her way through the folk song effortlessly, and surely makes her presence felt on the track.

Penned by Shakeela Jabeen and composed by Mian Yousaf Salahuddin, ‘Dil Saab Dil Babu’ plays to the rich traditional folk tunes of the province and manages to shine brightly through Mehwish’s vocals, who manages to make the song her own.
The actress had announced the completion of the song in May last year, however, with her film Load Wedding releasing later in 2018, the song was delayed until recently. Previously, Mehwish has also performed on Coke Studio and has been on a concert spree across the US, doing many successful shows.
