Saleem Shehzad: Soaring spirit of Pakistan

By Anis Shakur

Mohabbat kay diye jala lo, wafa kay geet gunguna lo, taqaza hai ye zindigi ka

Mohabbat kay diye jala lo

Rang roop husn ka nikhartay huay waqt apna pyar mein guzartay huay

Zindigi ki chahat o khuloos say ubhartay huay

Her ik dil mein jaga bana lo, wafa kay geet gunguna lo, taqaza hai ye zindigi ka

Mohabbat kay diye jala lo

Dhang koi jeenay ka sikhao na hamay, raha koi dard ki dikhao na hamay

Ajnabi samajh kay deikho raha mein satao na hamay

Hamay samjho jahan walo, wafa kay geet gunguna lo, taqaza hai ye zindigi ka

Mohabbat kay diye jala lo

Matlabi jahan say hum ko kaam he naheen, dushmani ka yaad hum ko naam he naheen

Jis jaga burai ho hamara wo maqaam he naheen, jo ruthay hain unhain mana lo

Wafa kay geet gunguna lo, taqaza hai ye zindigi ka, mohabbat kay diye jala lo

I always prefer to believe the best of everybody it saves so much trouble.

The above statement holds true to the popular singer of the yesteryear, Saleem Shehzad. He was born and raised in Ajmer Sharif, India. His father, Mohammed Azeem Prem Ragi, was a reputed poet and singer of the time.

Saleem Shehzad took music lessons from renowned music composer, Ustaad Baray Ghulam Ali. Saleem seemed to incorporate the basics of music and musical instruments rapidly.

After partition, Saleem migrated to Karachi, Pakistan. In due course of time, Saleem successfully graduated from college and enhanced his music abilities as well.

Saleem provided countless hours of pleasure to innumerable loyal fans through songs like the one below:

‘Mujhay ik larki say pyar ho gaya, khali pele kehta hai pyar ho gaya, jisay deikho pyar ka bemaar hogaya.’ The film ‘Heera aur pathar,’ composer, Sohail Rana. It looks like that was the mood of the moment.

Those were the days of stiff competition as Saleem forged his way up. Below is a song with positive, uplifting and truthful lyrics:

‘Mohabbat kay diye jala lo.’ The 1969 film ‘Assalam o alaikum.’

Saleem’s performance shows an artist’s understanding. In fact, I would say, that is the secret of his success. Saleem lent his voice to the romantic number below:

‘Zindigi to Aap ki ra’ana yeon ka naam hai, Aap he say hai seher aur Aap he say shaam hai.’ Composer, Sohail Rana, the film ‘Saughat,’ December 1, 1970.

One of Pakistan’s most inventive artists, Saleem’s plus points includes flexibility, rooted in love and understanding. Saleem’s singing talents and Nisar Bazmi’s fabulous music did the magic in the song below:

‘Pyar ki yaad nigahoan mein sajaye rakhna, in chiraghoan ko hawaon mein jalaye rakhna.’ Music, Nisar Bazmi, the film ‘Talaash,’ January 23, 1976.

Saleem Shehzad is no longer at the forefront of Pakistani show business. He will continue to provide perspective and delight to posterity. The End

Saleem Shehzad also recorded songs for the movies below:

1. The 1960 film ‘Shehzadi.’

2. The 1966 film ‘Akele na jana.’

3. The 1970 film ‘Kirdaar.’

4. The film ‘Awara.’

5. The film ‘Phir bahaar Aaye.’

6. The film ‘Humdum.’

7. The 1982 film ‘Naseeb.’

8. The 1986 film ‘Siyasat.’

9. The 1988 film ‘Ghareboan ka badshah.’

10. The film ‘Mohabbat ho to aisee ho.’ September 11, 1989.

11. Saleem Shehzad also sang a song for the Indian movie, ‘Jewan dhara.’
