Our very own rockstar, Ali Zafar, was invited as a chief guest to final round of the music sessions at ArtFest 15, the biggest inter-school festival of all art fields, by Aitchison College where he made a grand entrance. Ali made a surprise entry on stage at the finale of the arts and performing arts festival with the spotlight on him. The crowd went berserk as Ali’s entry was a surprise for them and they chanted ‘Rockstar’ and ‘AZ’ at the top of their lungs.
Ali then picked a volunteer from the audience and had a competition of push-ups after which Ali named the volunteer ‘a true rockstar’. Later, on the insistence of a large number of students present at the event, Ali sang a few lines of his super hit classics ‘Chal dil Meray’ and ‘Sajaniya’. Things heated up to another level and the crowd jumped to its feet when Ali’s younger brother Daniyal Zafar joined him on stage with a guitar and the duo performed Ali’s Coke Studio smash-hit ‘Rockstar’.
The superstar also addressed the charged-up crowd that was going wild at the sight of Ali up on the stage. Speaking on the occasion, Ali said youngsters were the real superstars and that he felt really good to be in front of such a great audience. He added that
“one day each and every one of you will make Pakistan proud”.
During the remaining event, the crowd of youngsters high on energy was continuously chanting ‘AZ’ and ‘Rockstar’, ‘once more’.
The principal of Aitchison College, Mr.Ameer Hussain, also presented Ali with a souvenir.
The crowd went further crazy when Ali joined judge Nabeel Shaukat on stage and they both performed the latter’s hit Coke Studio song ‘Bewaja’ as well as classic Hindi film song ‘Pyar deewana hota hai’ following which once again Ali performed his hit song ‘Sajanya’ but this time inviting participants of the arts fest on the stage to sing with him.
The event ended on a highly charged note as the crowd kept chanting Ali’s name, ‘AZ’, ‘Rockstar’ even after the singing sensation had left venue.
