‘Pasoori’ fever spiked when the Coke Studio single dropped and has refused to die down even half a year later. Singer Ali Sethi is celebrating 300 million views on the track on YouTube and though everyone is as excited as him, no one is surprised to see ‘Pasoori’ soar.
On Monday, the ‘Rung’ singer shared a compilation video with BTS clips from the official music video captioned, “300 million”. It featured set details and zoomed in on the people including his co-singer, Shae Gill.
Director Mira Nair and Indian playback singer Harshdeep Kaur dropped down in the comment section to tell him how great the song is.
PR guru Frieha Altaf and her daughter, actor Parisheh James also sent their love.
‘Pasoori’ was released in early February and was the sixth song to come out in Coke Studio’s season 14. It has been written by Sethi and Fazal Abbas, while the composition has been done by Sethi and Zulfiqar J Khan, popularly known as Xulfi. The music has been produced by Abdullah Siddiqui and Xulfi.
The song garnered great reviews and quickly climbed up to the third spot on Spotify’s global chart. Netizens ended up discovering the secret gem that was Shae Gill and were eager to learn more about her. There were countless recreations of the single and it was even featured in the recently released Ms Marvel.
‘Pasoori’s’ popularity knows no bounds — it was especially loved across the border as even celebrities were vocal about how much they enjoyed the song. Recently, Bollywood actor Alia Bhatt suggested that her upcoming film Brahmastra’s song ‘Kesariya’ may have just dethroned her favourite ‘Pasoori’.
