Sur Kshetra: Music to bridge Pakistan-India divide
MUMBAI: The idea was to unite two uneasy neighbours through melody and music and what better platform than the reality show “Sur Kshetra” that brings together singing talents from India and Pakistan, says Pakistani composer-actor-singer Atif Aslam.
Live from Saturday, the Indian show has a heavy dose of Pakistani flavour. Aslam will be seen mentoring singers from Pakistan and Bollywood playback singer Himesh Reshammiya will be seen with the Indian team. The judges are three South Asian singing legends — India’s Asha Bhosle, Pakistan’s Abida Parveen and Bangladesh’s Runa Laila.
