Pakistan and India may be facing wild differences at the moment, but some artists still don’t shy away from expressing their love for artists on the other side of the border and their work. Having said that, Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui recently revealed how a Pakistani song got him through tough shooting days.
In a recent interview, the Sacred Games actor mentioned how he used to listen to Tera Woh Pyar, originally performed by Shuja Haider and later covered by Momina Mustehsan and Asim Azhar, during his Manto days. “Before shooting any scene, I used to just listen to that song. Nothing matched that [experience], I used to feel an ultimate high after listening to it,” he said about the song. Check it out!
As Haider, Mustehsan, and Azhar themselves shared this bit from the interview, they reaffirmed the fact that art has no boundaries. Azhar also commented how music is the bridge of love and peace.
Here’s hoping and rooting for peace to prevail, and may indeed, music and arts be the binding force between the two nations.
