Taher Shah Strikes Back!

Honestly speaking, I didn’t wanted to talk about this in the first place. But then I changed my mind.

I have shared many posts on my blog about my country Pakistan.

The jaw-dropping scenery from my beautiful homeland that can literally take your breath away. From snow-filled mountain ranges, crystal clear lakes and rivers, ancient landmarks and so much more, I showcased some highlights of my country with you.

Your likes and comments on all such posts filled my heart with utter joy and I strongly sensed deep down inside myself that I did my part, in some extent, for my Pakistan.

Like every other country in the world, there are many faces in Pakistan. Good, bad, beautiful, not-so beautiful, friendly, not-so friendly, bizarre and more. But today, I’m about to show you one face of Pakistan which is above all those. I’m not placing this face in a particular category as I’m giving you the honor.

So are you ready?

Let me clarify one thing here, before you proceed further: What you are about to see is 100% authentic. This is no drama or fiction. This is real in every imaginable way.

Okay then!

This past weekend, across Pakistan, and even in India, this hashtag on social media was trending on #1: #tahershah

Now you may have heard about this but in case you haven’t, then prepare yourself for which I don’t have any words.


Here is a short summary: Last Friday night, a Pakistani businessman, Taher Shah, released his second music video on YouTube.

Yes, you read it correctly!

A Pakistani businessman who has released his music video on YouTube!

Now here is another person with some real “passion” for music. That is “passion”, in quotation marks, for music!

Why I wrote it up that way?

Well, for this you have to “watch” his latest music video, Angel. You can watch it by clicking here.

I’m deliberately not embedding it up here because I so much want you to read the comments section of the video first. You will then understand why Taher Shah’s “passion” for music is trending on the top.

I’m not gonna say more on this. Let me share what international media has to say about Taher Shah’s latest:


P.S. Here is his first music video, Eye to Eye. The one that made him a “star”!

    Goodness! Eye to eye was a torture to our eyes! And the man is so persistent to do what his passion is! 😨

      Compared to this new “hit”, his last attempt was just the tip of iceberg. I don’t have guts to watch them. I haven’t seen both. So far!!

      I surrendered half way for Eye to eye and so just don’t have the courage to attempt this time! 😀

    Hahahahhaha, and what a coincidence – I was just now at the Dawn site where there are comments by Twinkle Khanna on Taher Shah! This reminds me of the recent Bollywood film MSG (Messenger of God) where the main protagonist is actor/producer/director/singer/choregrapher/fightmaster/publicist/lyricist/screenplay writer/everything in one! And they look similar, too! 🙂

      Oh wow!! 😀
      Seriously, I was not in mood to talk about him but he is like everywhere. So I “threw” out my opinion on this by this post.
      MSG seems nice!
