Qawali night at Taj Mahal, Agra

Little do people know that Sajid-Wajid, the hindi music composer duo belong to a qawali lineage. They come from a family of qawali singers who were famous for singing in royal darbars and dargahs.

The duo have composed the music for YRF’s anticipated film, Daawat-e-Ishq. It is the first muslim social they have composed the music for.

When they found at that Aditya and Parineeti were going on a road trip to promote the film, they got really excited.

One of the places they are stopping at on the road trip is Fatehpur Sikri. It was built to honor the Sufi saint Salim Chishti.

Sajid-Wajid requested Aditya Chopra to hold a special qawali night there. They volunteered to bring down their entire team there for the night.  

Hence, those going on the food yatra are going to enjoy an authentic qawali night at the shrine of Salim Chishti.

The special event will take place under the stars, in front of the beautiful backdrop of the Taj Mahal.

Sajid and Wajid have decided on some special songs to sing. They are preparing extensively for it.   

Aditya and Parineeti are very excited for 
​the ​
q​
awali night and are looking forward to it.
