Netizens go gaga over Singer Lucky Ali’s unplugged live version of ‘O Sanam’


Guwahati: Overwhelming the Internet and hitting the 90s kid hard with nostalgia, a video of one of India’s most loved Indie-pop singer – Lucky Ali, playing the guitar and warbling ‘O Sanam’ in his soothing voice became a web sensation and our hearts can’t quit spouting or gushing over it.

Ali established himself as one of the country’s most beloved Indie-pop artists through his iconic numbers like O Sanam and Teri Yaadein. After that, he made his Bollywood debut with Kaho Na Pyaar Hai’s soulful number, Na Tum Jaano Na Hum.

Shot and shared on YouTube by photographer Saad Khan, the monochromic video features Ali seated with a guitar and looking dapper in a black jacket, a pair of trousers and a white skull cap. Though Khan shared the video on November 6, it only went viral recently and we can’t help but feel sorry for not treating ourselves to it earlier.

Mid way into the video, Ali can be seen singing, “Nazron se ab na humko giraana, mar bhi gaye (do not let our image drop in your eyes, even after we die)” and trailing off as he turns emotional. While Khan encouraged him with a “wow”, this was hands-down, an overwhelming moment for all the fans and we can’t even.

Soon enough, the Internet was on frenzy as fans emptied their stash of love in the comments section. Even Twitter could not keep calm as netizens trended the video viral.
