Some Lesser Known Facts About Shafqat Amanat Ali

  • Does Shafqat Amanat Ali smoke: Not Known
  • Does Shafqat Amanat Ali drink alcohol: Not Known
  • Though Ali comes from a family of Pakistani classical singers, he specializes in fusion music. He belongs to Patiala Gharana and is the ninth generation of lineage.
  • While talking to India Today, he revealed that his first salary was mere INR 3000 which he had received on working as a music teacher in a school. However, owing to his family customs, he handed over the entire amount to his grandmother.
  • Before getting the popularity in India through his song ‘Mitwa’ from the film ‘Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna,’ he was a famous lead vocalist of Fuzön, a pop rock band based in Karachi, Pakistan which split up back in 2006.
  • The nickname ‘Rockstar Ustaad’ was given to him by music composer Salim Merchant when they first met for the recording of ‘Yeh Honsla.’ Salim thought Ali would be in a crisp kurta-pyjama with a shawl, but when Ali came, he was wearing Jeans and T-shirt with a ponytail on the head. This surprised Salim, and when he finally heard Ali singing classical, the nickname automatically came out of his tongue.
  • In March 2008, Pervez Musharraf, the then President of Pakistan, conferred on him the ‘President’s Pride of Performance Award’ for his outstanding achievements in the field of art & culture.
