Faraz Waqar, the director of short film ‘9:11 am’, plans to release a film tribute ‘Imagineer’ to legendary pop singer Nazia Hasan on her 13th death anniversary.
Faraz Waqar has produced and directed the music film ‘Imagineer’ as a tribute to late singer Nazia Hasan. The film is shot entirely in UAE with an international team of models, actors, cinematographers and editors from India, UAE, Switzerland, Nigeria, Palestine and Kazakhstan.
“Nazia changed film and pop music trends across the sub-continent forever. She was the first Pakistani pop singer to contribute music to a Bollywood film. She started Pakistani pop music and Bollywood film partnership that continues to this day. Her music is still being used in new films like ‘Student of the Year’ by directors like Karan Johar. Nazia broke all records in music history with her debut album ‘Disco Deewane’ that became the best selling Asian pop album of all time worldwide. She was the first Pakistani winner and the youngest winner ever in the history of India’s prestigious Filmfare Awards when she won the award for Best Playback Singer – Female when she was only 15 years old. Did you know India Today magazine voted her as one of the top 50 people who changed the face of modern India in the 1980s?” says Faraz Waqar.
He also hopes that Nazia Hasan’s fans, her family and friends will appreciate this tribute to her.
