Pakistanis Are Scared Of Coke Studio’s Tribute To Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan


Since Coke Studio 10 launch this year, Fridays have become a source of dread, anticipation and hope for music fans around the world.

The live video recorded musical show has so far been a source of disappointment and anger rather than awe for millions of fans around the world. The latest episode of the season is about to air in a couple of hours and Pakistanis are actually scared of this one.

Why, you ask? Because the sixth episode of Coke Studio 10 pays tribute to the magnum opus of music, Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan Sb.

Coke Studio’s tribute to Junoon, Faiz Ahmed Faiz and other noted personalities didn’t go as planned. And while people may forgive and forget them for messing some of the classics, they are NOT ready to forgive Coke Studio for messing around with one of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s celebrated ghazals.


From begging to threatening, fans are making their thoughts clear that there’s no escape if Coke Studio didn’t live upto the challenge this time.


Do you think Coke Studio’s lineup including Ali Zafar and Umair Jaswal will be able to do justice this time?

PS: Atif Aslam and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan aren’t there to give us any hope!
