In an Instagram video, Arooj said he respects Hafeez a lot.

“Lots of love and respect — respect, respect, respect to Hafeez Hoshiarpuri, who wrote the poetry of the song Mohabbat,” she said.

”Aside from that, you have never heard anything like my version of Mohabbat and I am so grateful for all the love. And I am so grateful to all of you who have gone on the journey of that song with me where I have poured my whole soul into it. I hope that you feel that this iconic standard from our region and from our culture has been done the honours to,” she added.
