Ali Zafar’s Song Mela Loot Liya: Watch the Full Song!
Ali Zafar released his song Mela Loot Liya online in a grand finale to the massive buzz around the hashtag #BhaeeHazirHai
Ali Zafar started his showbiz career with modelling while he was still a student at the National College of Arts Lahore. Coming from a family of professors, Ali Zafar knew that his education came before anything else. Hence, he completed his art degree from the National College of Arts until he became a full-fledged part of the industry. In the meanwhile, Ali Zafar also kept doing acting projects. His first breakthrough singing project was Çhanno which made Ali Zafar a household name. Since then there was no looking back for him. Ali Zafar has also worked in many Bollywood films which include Kill Dil, Tere Bin Laden, Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, London Paris New York, Chashme Baddoor and Dear Zindagi.
Recently Ali Zafar was trending on Pakistani Twitter with the hashtag #bhaeehazirhai. As interesting as the hashtag sounds, it is apparently a phrase commonly used in Punjab to represent ‘bro code’ meaning ‘ I am there for you.’ In an interesting social media campaign, Ali Zafar first started off with a snippet where he mocked his own self saying ‘no matter what bad happens in the world, I am responsible for it.’ While the netizens had no inkling of what he actually meant, it apparently hinted to the recent series of controversies Ali Zafar has been associated with.

However, little did anyone know that Ali Zafar had been planning to release his own song for PSL. Here it is important to recall that Ali Zafar had sung the first anthem of PSL which was greatly popular among the masses. This time a new anthem was recorded with Ali Azmat and Asim Azhar which somehow failed to live up to the expectations of the people.
Here’s How It Transpired:
Most of the PSL fans wanted Ali Zafar to make his own song for the much-hyped league. Ouch!
In an interview, famous journalist Waseem Badami urged Ali Zafar to make his own song and not wait for PSL to contact him. Ali Zafar categorically said that he would do it at his own if people wanted him to sing because he did not want to hurt his fellow singers.
Then came another snippet with dhol beat to let everyone know that there was something cooking in Ali Zafar’s music studios.
Ali Zafar seemed all game and so did the fellow singers. Asim Azhar and Ali Azmat came forward in the support of Ali Zafar lending their full support and love for their fellow singer. Pakistan’s legendary cricketer Shoaib Akhtar was also enthralled. Some warm-up with the traditional dhol beats was right there.
Just like his promotion campaign, Ali Zafar also had an unusual idea for the video. He released a video with some dance steps to the beat of the dhol asking his fans to send their own videos so that they could also feature in the song.
“Lo G! The song is ready. Now time for the video. But this time, you can be the star and feature in it. Watch this video to understand what you need to do!”

Many people showered their love for the star.
Even little children did not lag behind.
Ali Zafar suggested the students to arrange flash mobs in their colleges as he also had the plans to go to his own college NCA Lahore for the same purpose.
Air University Islamabad was among the first ones to come up with a video.

Ali Azmat said that he was in full support of Ali Zafar and hinted that he would also participate in the trend sending his dance video.
Dennis Freedman, a popular cricket fan in Pakistan, also came forth with his own video:
Good morning @AliZafarsays— Dennis Does PSL (@DennisCricket_) February 29, 2020
I've recorded my dance moves for your song. Hi-res clip on email as instructed.
However, I still feel @ESharpism's "Bloody Gora Ft. Dennis (Live)" is a better song.
Take a listen and tell me what you think: https://t.co/CDWXEjCvFP pic.twitter.com/1cTQVSRIrF
Even merchandise was available for it.
Ali Zafar sent probably the last teaser to let his fans know that everyone’s efforts were being included in the final product which he intended to release on Sunday after sleepless days and nights.
The first look of the PSL song ‘Mela Loot Lia’ by Ali Zafar was released on social media.
The song ‘Mela Loot Liya’ (Winning the Festival) has since been released on YouTube and JioSaavn. It then began trending on Twitter.
Check out some of the reactions below.

Ali Zafar came up with #BhaeeHazirHai campaign in response to Ali Azmat blaming him on a national TV network for being responsible for the fans’ criticism that he and his colleague received before and after the opening ceremony of Pakistan Super League 5 in Karachi. Ali Zafar brilliantly used #BhaeeHazirHai as a marketing tool for his upcoming PSL 5 unofficial anthem turning the whole unpleasant scene into an opportunity for him.
