New York, NY February 10, 2013 — New York based pop/rock singer Fahad Ahmad is excited to announce the release of his new single, “Samjhana” for Valentine’s Day. The song is about love in all its forms; love of divine (Ishq-e-Haqiqi), and love of another (Ishq-e-Majazi).
Samjhana’s video, directed by renowned Pakistani director Sohail Javaid, focuses on Ishq-e-Majazi (love of another). It’s a story of two people who have frequent run-ins with one another and undoubtedly develop a mutual attraction, with New York City as the backdrop. In essence, the story is about reflection of chances and what could have been.
The video features Neelu Sodhi, a Bollywood actor, who recently made her silver screen debut in Sri Devi’s come back film, “English Vinglish.” The video also features Rajiv Sharma, a New York based actor.
The Video has additional contributions by Vishesh Sharma, Dante and others. On the audio side, co-producer and co-composer Samrat Chakrabarti, and sound engineer John Clark played a major role.
