Humsaye Maa Jaye is a meaningful music number which consists of powerful poetry that promotes the message of peace between India and Pakistan. Both Bushra Ansari and Asma Abbas have lent their melodious vocals for the song while their third sister, Neelum Ahmad Basher has written the poetry. The hugely talented sisters have created a masterpiece.
We got in touch with the director of the song which is in fact a mixture of Hip Hop and classical music. The video has been artfully directed by Iqbal Hussain.
We recently chanced to have a conversation with the director and seized the opportunity to ask him what was the inspiration behind this song!
The director revealed, “We are currently on sets of Deewar-e-Shab, where we were approached by Neelum who had written this beautiful poem on the current situation of Pakistan and India. When she narrated it, we all loved it. We started to brainstorm ideas as to how to send out this message and promote it.
We are neighbors and neighbor have rights. So we started throwing in suggestions like we can do theater etc. Within a few hours the idea developed that we should take out some time from our busy schedule and make a video that can be shared on Youtube so that people can be given a message.
This is how we got started. We only took one day off and managed to wrap up shoot in hardly 5-6 hours long recording that was later edited and uploaded on Youtube.
The whole idea behind this song was to recreate the sense of harmony, humanity and balance that existed amongst the people of both countries. We want this to reach maximum number of people.”
