Momina Mustehsan and Asim Azhar’s three-year old collaboration on Coke Studio, Tera Woh Pyaar, has a solid 132+ million views on YouTube, and it seems like the song’s appeal is only increasing with time.
Sacred Games star Nawazuddin Siddiqui has revealed that he’s also a fan, and that the song in fact helped him through the filming of Manto. Appearing on Arbaaz Khan’s talk show, Quick Heal Pinch by Arbaaz Khan, the star was grilled about various things and when asked about that one song he turns to during shoots, Nawazuddin said he’s obsessed with Momina Mustehsan’s Tera Woh Pyaar, featuring Asim Azhar.

“During the filming of Manto, I would listen to just one song by a Pakistani singer, Momina Mustehsan, Tera Woh Pyaar. Whenever I would start shooting any scene, I would give that song a listen,” said Nawazuddin, adding, “The song did not match to the movie at all, yet I would enter some sort of a high whenever I listened to it.”
Momina Mustehsan took to her Instagram to post a thank-you note to the actor, who has appeared in a number of critically acclaimed roles in recent times.
