Talent house Ali Zafar is soon to release the video of Jee Dhoondta Hai a song featuring Mirza Ghalib's poetry from his latest hit album Jhoom
The acclaimed poet's piece believed to be written for a courtesan will feature Ali Zafar in the video directed by Abdullah Haris - The six-and-a-half minute long video was shot in two days. "It shows the self-discovery of a man, his love and then his struggle, only to be involved in a spiritual journey, in the end," says Haris.
Sharing more details of the project, Zafar said, "Jee Dhoondta Haiwas the last song I added in Jhoom. I had recorded it three years ago. Before finishing the album, I felt that a song like this was missing. I had already sung one [poem from] Mirza Ghalib in the album Koi Umeed Bar Nahin Aatee and thought who could get enough of the great maestro, so I added Jee Dhoondta Haiin the last few days before finalising the record."
As per a recent market survey Ali Zafar's third album titled Jhoom released by Alif Records, Ali's own record label is the highest selling album in Pakistan and if that wasn't all Jhoom also ranked second in popularity on Indian Charts.
Excited about his latest video, the singer says, "It was a difficult task to reflect Ghalib's poetry in a music video. We hope we did it justice."
