Catching up with Atif Aslam…

AtifAtif Aslam has been given a new lease on stardom with his spiritual song for Ramadan. He talks to Instep about the new song and falling over at concerts.

Instep: One minute it’s Coke Studio and the next you’re in a Ramadan advertisement with Dawud Wharnsby. From rock to religious anthems, how do you balance the two very different genres without shaking up a doodh soda?

Atif Aslam: I am a Muslim and I feel I don’t have to wear the shalwar kameez or fold my trousers high to prove that. This is as much part of me as my pop star image. For me religion is primarily about peace and having compassion for other people.

A music video is supposed to lift a song. Not take it down. Unfortunately, in Atif’s latest video, the former happens.

When Atif Aslam revealed that his next video would be with Bilal Lashari (well-known for his stand out videos of Jal’s ‘Sajni’, Overload’s ‘Dhamaal’, Abrar’s ‘Islamabad’ and Atif’s ‘Hungami Halaat’), it came as a nice surprise. After all, barring ‘Hungami Halaat’, Atif has had a string of music videos that simply haven’t left a lasting impression. That he has become a star despite the abysmal quality of most of his videos is astounding and speaks of true talent and star quality.
