Bilal Saeed and Saba Qamar's Qubool, that recently came under fire for a sequence being shot at the Wazir Khan mosque, has finally been released for the public.
Produced under the banner of One Two records, the music video was a collaborative effort by the duo, exploring falling in love and learning to navigate conflict with your significant other.
Written, composed, produced and performed by Saeed, Qubool marks Saba's directorial debut in the field of music.
Like most of Saeed's songs, the beat's catchy and the endearing Punjabi lyrics definitely pulled at our heartstrings; not to mention, the video plays out like a beautiful short film. Looks like this is another feather in Qamar's hat.
Previously, as a brief clip from the video had gone viral, people on social media were enraged, deeming it disrespectful and offensive shooting bits of a music video at the religious site. Qamar clarified that the sequence shot was "a prologue to the music video featuring a nikah scene. It was neither shot with any sort of playback music nor has it been edited to the music track".
In an apology that followed, Bilal pledged to make amends.
"As a realisation on our part, I am removing the entire sequence from the video, and assure you that we won't make such mistakes in the near future," the No Makeup singer reiterated.
