Does the song Aap Jaisa Koi Meri Zindagi Mein Aaye ring a bell? The song, sung by popular Pakistani singer Nazia Hassan, created quite a buzz when it first appeared in the Bollywood movie Qurbani. Hassan started her career in music at the young age of 10 and became a sensation across India and Pakistan. Known as the ‘Queen of Pop’ in South Asia, her English single Dreamer Deewane made her the first Pakistani singer to make it to the British charts.
Interestingly, an old interview of the singer, which was recently posted on social media has gone viral. Captioned “You’ll fall in love with the simplicity and innocence of Nazia Hasan in this interview by the brilliant Tabassum,” the 2.19-minute clip shows young Hassan coyly responding to the questions of the dynamic Tabassum.

Also Tabassum is the inspiration for how to keep the conversation going by ‘acha maine ye bhi suna hai’ instead of ‘aur batao’

One memory of this song : years back at Ruia college fest, a senior college girl once dedicated this track to Arun Kothari (he was a hot professor) during the jam session…He was seated, shyly blushed a deep crimson & smiled. That song has conveyed many a message to the crushes.
