Shujaat Ali Khan, grandson of legendary classical singer Ustad Salamat Ali khan, is all to set to launch his latest song “Ranjha Jogha Ban Aaya,” which is based on the poetry of Baba Bulleh Shah.

Shujaat rose to fame some years ago when he gave stunning performances in popular Indian programme Saregamapa. Leading singers Asha Bhonsle, Gulam Ali and Suresh Wadekar praised the quality of his vocals. Although Shujaat did not win the competition but he won the hearts of the people and made Pakistan proud. Recently he performed in a number of concerts in USA, UK and UAE in which he collaborated with international artists. He acted as judge in the music competition of Beacon National University Festival called bestival.

The music of “Ranjha Jogha Ban Aaya,” was prepared by Kamran Akhtar and composed by Sajji Ali. The video has been directed by Jovi and choreographed by Vicky. “I wanted to launch a video song that should have the fusion of different genres of music like classical melody, rock, pop and sufiyana. In my video I have shown a classical dancer, who dances to promote poetry and Sufi concept. The hero falls in love with the girl. He tries to go to her home.

“Brother of the girl is shown as the villain. The hero starts loving that girl but the girl doesn’t respond. Hero with the passage of time resolves to be a Malang and sings in remembrance of his love. One day the girl sees that the person who used to love him has become a Malang and is singing in her remembrance. The girl realizes and starts loving him but when his brother gets to know that he kills her sister. The lover too dies. “In this way both the lovers pass away from this mortal world and entered into the halls of eternity,” Shujaat explained.
