The Bollywood song “Mere Rashke Qumar” of Ajay Devgan's upcoming movie 'Baadshaho' is cutting through the hearts of Indian audience these days.

Given its recent popularity, it might come as a surprise to many that the song is actually neither recent nor Indian. It was originally sung by Pakistani singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and written by Fana Buland Shehri, that too ‘over 40 years ago’.

Khan, at that time, wouldn’t even have imagined that his song would find such love in the India cinema.

The song has gained such popularity that not only people are listening to it, notable singers like Sonu Nigam, Neha Kakkad and Baba Sehgal are featuring it in their own voices.
