The night of May 29 2016 came as a treat to Dhakaites as they enjoyed a night of Bollywood musical numbers with the arrival of seasoned Bollywood singer Atif Aslam in the city. The Pakistani born songbird who is currently wowing Bollywood with his numerous chart-topping tracks performed a concert titled “Rhythm for All – with Atif Aslam Night Live in Dhaka 2016.”
Atif made an energetic entry at the last hour of the show with the song “A raha hoon main.” The star of the evening then went on engaging the audience with his most popular tracks, such as “Tera hone taga hoon” and “Ba khuda tumhi ho.” His powerful yet melodious voice showed its amazing range through a range of songs, from romantic classics to Sufi tracks. At the end of the show, he thanked the audience and mentioned that most of his fans on Facebook were actually Bangladeshis.
The highlights of the night included his rendition of one of his most popular tracks “O jane ja,” with nothing but a piano in the background, while the entire hall sang along with him. His other performances included classics like “Jab koi baat bigar jaye,” “Keya hua tera waada,” “Zindegi ke safar mein guzar jate hain jo makam,” and “Kabhi kabhi mere dil mein.”
