Tajdaar e Haram by Atif Aslam

I have been listening and appreciating Atif Aslam for ages now but did not know that he was called Atif Aslam. Recently however, I chanced upon this song, “Dil Diya Gallan” from the film Tiger Zinda Hai and was totally mesmerised. What a masterpiece!

I started researching about the singer and had this Aha moment. “Ok, no wonder it is this guy.” And then, as is usually the case, I started finding all the songs sung by him. In this process, I ran into this gem, “Tajdaar e Haram”, originally sung by the Sabri Brothers of Pakistan. Atif Aslam sang this for a performance for Coke Studio (Pakistan).

Here is the video of the Coke Studio performance:
