- In an interview, while talking about working with many renowned singers of Pakistan, he said,
I remember buying my first cassette and it was Irtiqa so for me EP played a vital role in shaping me. In fact, sitting in the same room as Xulfi and Fawad and working something out – it felt like maybe this is how EP used to compose songs in their heyday. And these two guys were leading the band so obviously it’s been great. Fawad’s energy while rehearsing, he’s a completely different person; he has that notion that he should be doing something like playing an instrument so it is an, unlike Fawad Khan experience. But, it was great and it’s always an honour to work with a star like Fawad Khan.”
