As ‘Sadqay’ Triumphs, Aashir Wajahat Scripts His Success With Sheer Dedication

Aashir Wajahat is on cloud nine and rightfully deserves to be. His latest single ‘Sadqay’ has turned out to be a rage with impressive YouTube views and top trending on musical charts and Instagram reels. ‘Sadqay’ is not just wooing avid music listeners and local audiences but has found its way into the hearts of Bollywood stars like Ayushmann Khurrana and Rani Mukherjee. As reported by various portals, the track has made it to the top of Spotify Global Viral 50 chart.

What Makes ‘Sadqay’ Addictive?

Crooned by the brother’s duo Aashir and Nayel Wajahat along with emerging talent Nehal Naseem, ‘Sadqay’ features elements of qawwali grove with contemporary beats. The splendid and strong melody is mixed and mastered by Shiraz Uppal. Flashes of his mastery are seen as the song’s high point arrives in the form of its crescendo; ‘Sadqay’ simply inches towards greatness. The fun, peppy and Gen-Z vibe of the video directed by Bilawal Hussain Abbasi is another highlight.

Craft Overtakes Nepotism

Aashir has been often targeted and tagged as privileged whenever there is a nepotism discussion. For the unversed, he is the son of director and producer Wajahat Rauf. The debate of Nepotism is relevant to an extent when a person lacks talent. But this isn’t the case with Aashir. Despite facing constant criticism about his singing skills, he remained persistent throughout, honed his skills and emerged victorious. Directing music for feature film ‘Parde Mein Rehne Do’ at this age is no mean feat. His hard work is a befitting reply to the negativity, hate and trolls.

Acting Highlights

Aashir made his acting debut as a child star in ‘Karachi Se Lahore’. His promising talent was further seen in films like ‘Lahore Se Aagey’ and ‘Chhalawa’. He silenced critics and naysayers with a restrained and compelling acting in ‘John’, his first solo feature in a leading role. He has done just two projects for Television: ‘Pinjra’ and ‘Chand Tara’. It is surprising to see his choice of diverse roles and showcasing his acting prowess in serious and light-hearted roles.

Bright Future Ahead 

The super success of ‘Sadqay’ proves that talent shines brighter than nepotism. Aashir has another biggie ‘Daghabaaz Dil’ in his lap. He has given the music of the film with Hassan Ali Hashmi. According to Wajahat Rauf, the wedding song in the film is a major highlight of the film. The film is slated to release on Eid 2024.
