Wo Andheri Raat Ki Chaap Thi (Faridoon Shahryar)

This is the music video of 'Wo Andheri Raat Ki Chaap Thi', a Nazm written by my father Professor Shahryar (Jananpith Award winning Urdu Poet and lyricist of Muzaffar Ali's Gaman and Umrao Jaan). Navneet Kedar has composed this Nazm while I've sung it. The video has been directed by my wife Aarefa who can also be seen in the video. She is a tough taskmaster. It took us around a month to make this video since she insisted on getting the context of the Nazm right. The response has been great so far.

Five Ghazals/ Nazms (Wo Andheri Raat Ki Chaap Thi, Shab-e-Gham Kya Karein, Khwaab Se Rishta, Naseem-e-Soobh Ro Rahi Hai and Palkon Ko Bhigoyen Kaise) have been launched on the premiere online music portal artistaloud.com. Here is the link:
