Our Favourite Celebrities Share Their Favourite Independence Day Songs with Us
Celebrating 69 years of independence, we ask some of the leading names in the drama industry which independence songs quench their patriotic thirst and here goes!

Maya Ali tells us the one song she loves most is Ishq Se Aur Junoon Se Miltee Hai Azadi sung by the band Junoon for an amazing film called Jinnah. The movie released in 1999, stars international stars like Shashi Kapoor and Naseerudin Shah.

Saba Qamar who is currently in Delhi shooting her upcoming film with Irfan Khan shares that her favorite song is Mera Paigham Pakistan sung by the legendary Nusrat Fatah Ali Khan.

Even though our heartthrob Imran Abbas is shooting for a special appearance with Anushka and Ranbir Kapoor in Karan Johar's Ae Dil Hai Mushkil in Bombay right now, his heart resides in Pakistan. He chooses a rare gem which is a Punjabi song Ae Putar Hataan Tae Nae Wikde which is a tribute to the martyrs who gave their lives for the sake of Pakistan.

Noor Hassan also selected Madam Noor Jahan’s Ae Watan Ke Sajeelo Jawano which is again a tribute for the martyrs when she use to sing live on radio for free during the 1965 war to motivate the soldiers on the border.

Ayesha Khan, now known as Jeena for her infamous role in Mann Mayal, tells us that similar to Saba Qamar her favourite is also Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s Mera Paighaam Pakistan.

Our July issue's superstar, Mikaal Zulfiqar, mentions that he loves Junoon's Jazba Junoon and is to this day mesmerised by how Ali Azmat has sung it.

Main lead Shaz Khan from Jami's directorial Moor that was recently awarded at The Lux Style Awards shares that the one song that gives him goose bumps is the legendary Mehdi Hassan’s Yeh Watan Hamara Hai. That is indeed a very patriotic song.

Syra Yousuf shares Maula by Vital Signs as her go-to Pakistani song.

Sarwat Gilani associates Pakistan with the song Dil Se Main Ne Dekha Pakistan.
