Ever since we heard the song ‘Chaahat’, we can’t help it but recur. As per facts, Chaahat was first released in 2011 with an entirely different name, but the singer-songwriter ‘Murtaza Akbar’ was never content with the primary version. He spent the past years transforming his very first work but couldn’t achieve an edge until recently. Chaahat made its comeback in the year 2020 after Murtaza found ‘Eahab Akhtar’ as a producer for his song.
While Eahab is a renowned singer-songwriter and a visionary, he played an integral role. Apart from proposing changes to the original composition, he enriched Chaahat, in simple words, what the emerging music artist ‘Murtaza’ has always envisioned. Kudos also goes to the multi-talented ‘Shabbir Ali’ who transformed words of this song through his lyrical creativity. The track also has contributions from notable musicians like Imran Akhoond (guitars).
