The King of Pop in Pakistan – Alamgir – celebrates his 62nd Birthday and no one can be happier than his fans. For those who don’t know, Alamgir sang a few film songs earlier in his career before turning full throttle to pop singing and inspiring generations of musicians and singers. Let’s take a look at some of his filmi and non filmi songs to join in the celebrations.

Hum Chalay To Hamare – Jagir

This song has an interesting history – Music composer Nisar Bazmi chose Alamgir after the rest of the playback singers refused to sing for him due to his issues with powerful people in the industry. Alamgir rescued his mentor and the song is still popular even after 4 decades.

Tum Meri Zindagi Ho – Mom Ki Gudya

Robin Ghosh used Alamgir in a couple of his films including this one in which Alamgir sings with Mehnaz for Ghulam Mohiuddin and Shabnam. His voice for suited for the number as Gullu played a pop singer in the film!
