For starters, look how cute Nazia Hassan is one of these vintage interviews of hers where she is talking about how she’d do hosting on a show if she was offered a good program. “Depends on the program” she said. How cute. Remember a time when the only two options for stars was either to sing or host. Good old days. Now some of our stars can sell things, be brand ambassadors and be good at everything except at what they actually do.
Next up. Shahzad Roy. Proof that he’s never getting old. The guy still looks like this. No jokes.
So does Shaan. WHAT ARE THEY EATING? Okay, on a serious note. This is taken from Shaan’s famous music video by Fuzon, called “Khamaaj”. Shaan is the son of Riaz Shahid, and this video, some say, was sort of an homage to the late director’s life.
Those were the days when the entire song could effectively revolve around one woman climbing stairs and a man swooning about it.
Sajjad Ali with his emo feels is hitting me right in the gut, guys.
No conversation about the glorious nineties is complete without Junoon. Their songs were soulful, beautiful and look at all that hair Ali Azmat had.
And I am sure everyone remembers when Fawad Khan was an angsty rocker with no intentions to become the chocolatey loverboi he is now known as. Pre-Humsafar post Entity Paradigm.
Fawad here channels the feelz of every parent when their kids wake up early on the weekend.
Another one of our favorites. Strings. This song, directed by Jami, was pure art. It spoke to you. It breathed life into your existential crises – if you are an urban male that is.
For the not-so-urban male. This song was for you. Forget the category. If you are an iconoclast of any kind, if you refuse to walk the path others have taken, this was your anthem. Us Rah Par, by Junaid Jamshed.
Shoaib Mansoor and his finds. Take a look at this familiar face who we all know very well now.
