Remembering Amjad Bobby!

One of the finest music composers of Pakistan film industry, Ahmed Bobby will always be remembered for his unique compositions for Lollywood.

Born in 1942 in Amritsar, British India, Amjad made his recognition in 1969 movie “Aik Nagina” in which the song "Dil nahi toe koi sheesha koi pathar hi milay", recorded in Ahmed Rushdie’s voice made him popular.

The decade of 80’s proved to be turning point in his career, as he rose to fame with many hit compositions during that period.

He has been awarded Nigar Award twice for Best Music Director in film 'Kabhi Alwida Na Kehna' (1983) and for ‘Deewane Tere Pyar Ke’ (1997).

He had worked with singers from both Pakistan and India. He composed music for Ahmed Rushdi, Salma Agha, Akhlaq Ahmed, Ghulam Abbas, A Nayyar, Waris Baig, Shazia Manzoor, Humera Channa, Arshad Mehmood, Kumar Sanu, Udit Narayan, Alka Yagnik, Sonu Nigam, Kavita, Jaspinder Narula etc.

The celebrated musician died of cardiac arrest on 15th April 2005, in Lahore. This was a big loss for the local music industry as he gave a new direction and introduced new trends.

His super hit film songs are “Dil Nahin Tau Koi Sheesha”, “Lehra k Pee Gaye”, “Aa Piar Dil me Jaga”, “Surmai Badlon Kay Peechhe”, “Ik Karz Muhabbat hae gin ginke” and many more.
