Soulful voices of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan & Rahat Fateh Ali Khan in ‘Mere Rashke Qamar’

The first song of India’s film Baadshaho, “Mere Rashke Qamar”, meaning, ‘the moon is also jealous of your beauty’ is all about the budding romance between royalty, Ileana D’Cruz and rugged Ajay Devgn. This sufi romantic song has the most soothing lyrics, the tunes of harmonium and mandolin and the soulful voices of late Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and his nephew Rahat Fateh Ali Khan.

A lot of covers of the famous song have been made in the past but this is the first time Rahat has attempted the song. The remix made by him is obviously not good as the original considering it’s nearly impossible to reach Nusrat Fateh’s level but it is catchy and sounds pretty good too. Have a listen and be the judge yourself:

Here’s the original song:

All the remixes that bollywood has been making of our songs in the recent years makes me wonder has Bollywood no creativity of her own?
