"you have a great opportunity to become well-known.”

During a recent appearance on the show, Mind Na Karna, Abrar-ul-Haq highlighted the significant impact of his compositions on Indian musicians.

He mentioned how his songs had inspired Indian musicians.

Abrar explained: “Fifteen to twenty years ago, the songs I created were unprecedented in India.

“Subsequently, Sikh musicians adopted a similar style and produced songs like FIR. Pakistani musicians should feel proud that we initiated this trend.”

Abrar considered it a significant compliment to have made a global impact on the music industry.

Not only has he ventured into politics, but he is also familiar with incorporating political satire into his music.

He highlighted being one of the pioneers in integrating rap into Punjabi songs. With the rise of social media, Abrar is optimistic about the prospects for emerging talent.

“Social media is so important now.”

Reflecting on the beginnings of his career, Abrar highlighted the dramatic transformation in the global landscape with the emergence of smartphones.

“When I began my music career, many people would wait in long lines outside producers’ offices, hoping for a chance to say just one line in a show.

“Today, if you’re creative and can produce good content, you have a great opportunity to become well-known.”

Abrar insightfully exposed how veteran musicians often look down on artists at the start of their careers.

Reflecting on his own debut once more, Abrar-ul-Haq recalled:

“When I first entered the industry, many blamed me for spoiling music. But this pattern repeats itself.

“Those who were new before now criticise those who are new, but that’s not right. All musicians should be respected.”

Abrar also mentioned that motivating the younger generation has been one of his goals through his work.

“I’ve always aimed to inspire young people. But remember, music is ultimately about enjoying yourself.”

Many fans left their comments on his recent statements.

A user wrote: “That’s right, Indians did copy him. No one before him did it.”

Another added: “Bollywood’s major inspiration comes from Pakistanis to be honest.”

One said: “At least he acknowledges how important new talent is.”

Abrar-ul-Haq has left an enduring legacy through his groundbreaking contributions and enduring melodies.

His emergence onto the national television stage with the iconic Billo De Ghar in 1995 catapulted him to widespread fame.

It was then that he introduced audiences to his unique fusion of Punjabi music.
