Somewhere in 2010 or 2011, MTV’s Coke Studio in Pakistan telecasted Arif Lohar’s Jugni and instantly, the song became everything the people were listening to, both in Pakistan and even in India too.
People were sharing the song through Bluetooth and soon the same song got featured in Imtiaz Ali’s Cocktail featuring Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone and Diana Penty. The song was featured as a break-up song in the movie and instantly struck a chord with various heartbroken lovers.
Cut to 7 years later, a street artist in Australia was seen performing the song on the streets of Australia and now his video is going viral on social media. Clad in a blue jacket, the man hits all the right notes and you won’t even be able to spot a foreign accent on the song, something very unusual.
