Azaan Sami Khan revealed that the new song is titled ‘Ik Lamha’ and as per the singer it is, “A love letter to the city I grew up in, my city, my home….Karachi.” Directed by Mohammed Ehteshamuddin, the video promises to be nothing short of dramatic complete with horse carts, burlesque style dancers, sizzling chemistry and heartbreak. The teaser begins with Maya Ali’s voiceover as she hints that she’s about to meet Khan for the last time. Between the glimpses of her engagement ring donned on henna colored hands and her puffy 60 style hairdo, she mulls over how, “You don’t believe yourself to be worthy of me, I’ll accept that. But I can’t accept anyone else for myself, how can I convince myself of that? I’m coming to meet you for the last time, tell me what you’ve decided.” As far as the actual song is concerned, the teaser hints at a fusion of genres. The qawali style chorus is sung with an electric guitar in the background, coupled with Khan crooning about heartbreak.
