Mehwish Hayat will be part of Coke Studio 9



From first to the eighth seasons Coke Studio’s female vocal powerhouse has been constant. From Meesha Shafi and Fariha Pervez to Zeb Bangash and Sanam Marvi, all of the women who have appeared on the show have amazed listeners.

Whereas the experimentation of possessing well-known actors-cum-musicians come out on the show as either characterizing artists or background singers have produced combined effects for both Rohail Hyatt and Strings, inward producer for the show’s ninth edition, Shiraz Uppal, appears to go on with the custom.

Actor-dancer Mehwish Hayat is also going to beautify the leading music show of the country with her singing ability.

A source close to Coke Studio 9 was stated in an interview that “Mehwish [Hayat] has featured in a track alongside Shiraz Uppal with the latter also serving as the producer.”

One more person of the show’s production crew added that “Mehwish has done an impressive job as a singer as she was able to hold her own opposite Shiraz.”

It is not initially that the performer has gone inside the recording studio as she has in the past recorded OSTs and theme songs for many television serials.

A few of her tracks involve Tell Me Why (Meri Behan Aya), Pani Barsa (Man Jali), Mujhse Ab Meri Mohabbat Ke Fasane Na Kaho (Talkhiyaan) and a duo with Fariha Pervez for the Mirat-ul-Uroos theme song, Har Saans Gawahi Deta Hai.


Sideways from singing for OSTs, she also played a wrap version of the Adele-song, Rolling in the Deep all through a live morning show.

Regardless of several endeavors, both Uppal and Hayat could not be approached for a comment.

The eminent performer has previously strung jointly an inspiring portfolio in Pakistani cinema, seeming in two main blockbusters, Na Maloom Afraad and Jawani Phir Nahi Ani (JPNA).

She will subsequently appear opposite Fahad Mustafa and Om Puri in a comedy film which is directed by Nabeel Qureshi in Actor In Law.

Her movie JPNA was the highest-earning Pakistani movie of all time, grossed about Rs 464.4 million globally.

It is relevant to state that previously, artists mainly recognized for their acting, hosting and modeling talents have emerged on the show.

Actor Ayesha Omar seemed in Season 6 with the song Laage Re Nain while VJ Komal Rizvi sang Daanah Pah Daanah beside Akhtar Chanal in Season 4 and Washmallay with Momin Durrani in Season 7. Actor Sanam Saeed has as well been part of the show in the ability of a backing vocalist.
