‘Saiyaan’ Song Dedicated To Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan – Preity Zinta
It’s was quiet hard to figure when did “Ishqk In Paris” hit the screens and when was it taken down. Though the movie didn’t live up to any Preity Zinta’s hopes or the viewer’s hopes at all, it did had something honest to look forward too, a song dedicated to Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan sung by Rahat composed by Sajid-Wajid (Sajid is himself a die-hard NFAK fan) and written by Kausar Munir. The song is just average and not at all memorable. But the effort put can still be appreciated.
