Atif and Mohit shared the staged, mesmerising more than 10,000 people at the jam packed arena.
Prior to the concert, Atif told Millennium Post, “I might shift to India, specifically to Mumbai, if I sign a time-taking project. I have recently bought a house in Dubai and shifted there with Sarah (wife) and my son. I won’t might settling in India for a while, India is my second home. People here love me so much that I never feel I am away from my hometown.”
Atif also ensured that he will definitely plan something for Aadeez (his fans) on his upcoming 32nd birthday on March 12.
“I might come up with a new song from my upcoming private album. That particular song will be dedicated to all my fans across the world,” he added.
When we asked Mohit Cahuhan about his plans of joining a band again, he told Millennium Post, “One cannot join any band by planning. It just happens. If I came across any such talent meeting whom I want to form a band, I will do that. But for now, there is no such plan.”
Mohit Chauhan opened the stage with his popular number Jo Bhi Main from the movie Rockstar. The singer was later joined by director Imtiaz Ali. Atif Aslam was the next to take the stage. Addressing the crowd he said, “Music is same across the borders. I love India. It’s like home coming for me.”
He started off his performance with the song Hum Kis Gali. He was later accompanied by Mohit Chauhan for the duet. Both the singers sang the unplugged version of Dooba Dooba and Tera Hone Laga Hun. “When I was 18, I heard Mohit’s song—Dooba Dooba. Since then I became his fan. I want to sing this song unplugged with him,” said Atif before they shared the stage.
Speaking about this collaboration, Mohit said, “I am overwhelmed with the audience’s response. Atif and I have a good chemistry singing together for the first time on Indian soil. We went beyond and extended the show as the energised fans encouraged us to perform.”
Unlike his last concert in November (2014) in Gurgaon, this time Atif enthralled the audience with the album songs like - Meri Kahani and Jalpari. Later the Pakistani singer sang his popular numbers like - Kuch is Tarah, Doorie, Yakeen among others.
But the performance was intervened by Gurgaon police and had to be cut short. Ending the concert Atif thanked the audience saying, “The enthusiasm that the audience displayed built the momentum and made the show more exciting. I look forward to many such visits to continue entertaining my fans in India.”
