Bilal Lashari – Hotstepper of the week

October 11, 2009

Bilal LashariThe most noticeable music video of this year (yet) has been directed (once again) by none other than Bilal Lashari and it’s for the Mekaal Hasan Band. ‘Chal Bulleya‘ is a narrative depiction of the seven deadly sins and Lashari has boxed a celebrity in almost each vice. With an opening shot of the band –Mekaal Hasan with newly straightened, almost bonded hair – the story moves on to a hotel floor where a uniformed Juggan Kazim is wheeling room service from door to door.

It has been directed by Bilal Lashari, the wardrobe by Ammar Belal and styling done by the award winning duo Maram and Aabroo.

Mekaal Hasan said this about the video and album release date:

Hi everyone..
I am just writing to inform you all that the video for Chal Bulleya and the record are slated for an Eid release. While this delay is frustrating for us all it will allow the record and video to be promoted properly around Eid since any promotion right now will have to be ceased during Ramazan. I am very hopeful all of you will find the wait worth it and I do share your frustration at not having the video and record out right now. I’d like to thank you all for your patience and hope you will bear with the band on these delays. read more
