Palkon Ko Bhigoyen Kaise...The Response!

Kindly have a look at the music video of 'Palkon Ko Bhigoyen Kaise', a ghazal written by my father Prof Shahryar (Jnanpith Award winning Urdu poet and the lyricist of Muzaffar Ali's Umrao Jaan). The music has been given by my friend Navneet Kedar while my wife Aarefa Faridoon has directed the video. I have sung it. The video has been shot in Tokyo (Japan), Sarawak (Malaysia) and Mumbai. A big thanks to my daughter Insha for her constant encouragement.
