Umeed Ki Nayi Dhun, a concert fostering Indo-Pak friendship will be held on March 5
Music has no boundaries and a unique concert being held in Dubai next week proves it. The Zee Network Middle East will organise ‘Umeed Ki Nayi Dhun’ a first-of-its-kind television show aiming to promote peace and friendship between India and Pakistan. As part of the five-part show, a concert featuring prominent artistes from both countries top-lined by Javed Ali and Komal Rizvi will be held on March 5, 2014 at Sheikh Rashid Auditorium.
The concert will have performances by singers of the popular Zee TV reality show SaReGaMaPa including Zain Ali (Pakistani finalist of SaReGaMaPa 2012) and Jasraj Joshi (winner of SaReGaMaPa 2012), Azmat Hussain (Winner of SarReGaMaPa L’il Champs 2011) and Arshpreet Kaur (participant in the 2012 edition of the reality show). It will be hosted by Shailesh Lodha, a poet, host, television host and stand-up comedian. One of the main attractions will be performances by Ali Zafar who will dance to his songs from his upcoming Indo-Pak romantic film Total Siyappa with Yami Gautam. Both the consular general of India and Pakistan and other delegates are expected to grace the event.
The highlight will be a performance by Javed Ali (famous for songs like Kajra Re, Nagada Nagada, Jab Tak Hai Jaan, Tum Taketc) and Komal Rizvi who was the first Pakistani VJ on Indian television.
