The show stopper of the night was the superb performance by Ali Zafar and Atif Aslam celebrating the essence of Defence Day. The song- Yaar Yaaron Sey Ho Na Juda - is none other than Sahir Ali Bagga’s composition, and written by Imran Raza. The video is directed by Dr. Hasan Waqas Rana.

Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s brilliant performance was the perfect way to end the star studded night. All music hotshots were gathered up on stage joining Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, summing up the event in the most remarkable way.
