"it sounds better than the original."
A Pakistani clown surprised everyone with his voice when he started singing.
In a video, YouTuber Ahmed Khan talks to the clown on the side of a busy road.
The clown is believed to be named Arif Khan, a resident of Karachi.
Arif reveals that although he is a children’s entertainer, he wants to be a singer.
Ahmed initially does not take his answer seriously, briefly laughing. He then asks Arif to sing.
Arif then begins to sing his rendition of ‘Abhi Mujh Mein Kahin’, originally sung by Sonu Nigam for the film Agneepath.
His singing is powerful and full of emotion, surprising Ahmed, who praises his voice.
As busy traffic continues to pass by, the Pakistani clown sings another track, earning further praise.
The YouTuber says he has a lot of talent before asking Arif to sing another song.
The video went viral and was shared on social media. One user identified the clown as Arif Khan and wrote:

One comment read: “He is looking sad from deep inside but still, he tries to make others happy.”
Another person wrote: “His face felt sad. He was sad about his situation still he was respectful.
