After his critically acclaimed session performances at Coke Studio Season 7 with âNadiyaâ and âPehla Pyarâ, leading Pakistani music talent Jimmy Khan releases his rendition of Lata Mangeshkarâs âAjeeb Dastaanâ.
The original song featured in Dil Apna Aur Preet Parai, a 1960 Bollywood movie with iconic sub-continental actors, Raaj Kumar and Meena Kumari. A ballad written on the intricacies and complications of romance, Jimmy Khanâs rendition of âAjeeb Dastaanâ also features musician Rahma Ali on vocals, both having previously collaborated for a performance at the Coke Studio Season 7 session with âNadiyaâ. Jimmy Khanâs âAjeeb Dastaanâ also features Zain Ahsan on ukulele, Sameer Ahmed on bass and Raavail Sattar on percussions.
Speaking about the release of the song Jimmy Khan has said, âAjeeb Dastaan is a song that Iâve been extremely excited to release, because not only is it a classic but itâs a song I am personally very much attached to for many reasons - Itâs been a family favourite ever since I can remember, and Iâve been performing this song on my own for several years now. It was Zain Ahsan who suggested to collaborate with the talented Rahma Ali again and I hope we have done this legendary film song justice!â
Produced by Zain Ahsan, âAjeeb Dastaanâ was recorded and mixed by Mekaal Hasan at Digital Fidelity Studios with video production by Front Row Studio and direction by Mahad Ali Sajid & Diyach Thebo.
