Like season six, when Coke Studio with Rohail Hyatt as producer, opened with one song before getting into multiple-song episodes, in the much-talked about and highly anticipated season 12, something similar is about to happen. Sources report that Atif Aslam will be performing one song – a heavyweight in his own right – called ‘Wohi Khuda Hai’. We’re getting spiritual vibes already.
A hamd penned by Muzaffar Warsi, the lyrics of ‘Wohi Khuda Hai’ reflect the praise of God as the omnipotence, who maintains the balance and harmony in the universe. It is about the connection with the divine and was made famous by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.
Reflecting on his life journey, Atif Aslam has said, “I still don’t think I have made it. When I started, for the first few years, I used to think, with fame and money, I’d made it. But after that I asked myself, ‘What have you made? This is all material that you have.’ After that, the real search started. That is when the fun started. Even today, I am caught in that search. I will keep at it, always.”
The behind the scene footage will be out, describing the visual journey of the making of the hamd if it hasn’t already. The devout track is scheduled to release on October 11, marking the opening of the season.
