During a special ceremony hosted in Javed Akhtar’s honour at the Faiz Mela in Lahore, Pakistani musician Ali Zafar paid tribute to the renowned Indian poet and lyricist.

Famous Indian poet and lyricist Javed Akhtar recently took part in the Faiz Mela where he was feted by a group of bookworms and regional artists.
Popular Pakistani actor and singer Ali Zafar was there, and he gave a performance of a song by Javed Akhtar.

The audience, which included Zafar’s wife Ayesha Fazli, actress Resham, singer Natasha Baig, and journalist Tarot Geelani among others, enjoyed Zafar’s rendition of the song.

The song, titled Ek Dalke Ko Dikha, was originally written by Akhtar for the 1994 Indian film 1942: A Love Story, featuring Anil Kapoor and Manisha Koirala.

The song became an instant hit and earned the lyricist accolades, including Filmfare and Screen awards.

The song has since been adapted for the 2019 Bollywood film Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, starring Anil Kapoor, his daughter Sonam Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao, and Juhi Chawla.

Indian fans were also mesmerized by the duo’s jamming session at the Faiz Mela. Ali Zafar and Javed Akhtar also sang ‘Zindegi aa rha hon mein.’
