The album of Saif Ali Khan’s upcoming film Cocktail has received superb audience reactions and with that four Pakistani talented singers make their debut in India. Keeping in mind their great music, the makers had planned a lavish music launch celebration.

The makers of Cocktail had planned a huge unplugged evening – an evening, where one would get to see jugal bandi of Indian and Pakistani musicians. The event would have certainly gathered a huge crowed as it was being organized in a well know amphitheatre in Bandra.
However things didn’t go as per the plan. Unfortunately the Pakistani singers couldn’t get visas to come to India, because of which the music launch idea had to be scrapped.Among the well know singers of Pakistan include Imran Aziz Mia, a singer who does a special form of qawwali in which you fight with God. Aziz Mia, his father has been one of the main qawwals from Pakistan and Imran has followed his footsteps.

Javed Bashir is already a known face in the Pakistani music scene, his control over qawwali and classical is unique and he has been the lead singer of the Mikal Hassan band in Pakistan.

Arif Lohar is one of the biggest Punjabi folk singers of Pakistan and his father Alam Lohar was the pioneer of Punjabi folk music. Sahir Ali Bagga is a very talented singer composer.

Now the producers are planning to keep this event in London where concurrently both Indian and Pakistani singers will get to celebrate with ease. Keeping in mind the excitement and thrill, they will make sure it will be a worthwhile event.
