‘Janam-Faidaye-E-Hyderi’ Returns As ‘Zuv Miyon Fida-E-Hyderi’ in Kashmir

The Kashmiri adaptation has been directed by the well-known actor-director from Kashmir, Mir Sarwar.

Srinagar– The iconic elegy that became a smashing hit across religious and cultural barriers four years ago has now got a Kashmiri version—‘Zuv Miyon Fida-E-Haideri’—and it is getting popular by the day.

The original number, ‘Janam Fida-E-Hyderi, is based on an Urdu song dedicated to Imam Ali (A.S).

The Kashmiri adaptation has been directed by the well-known actor-director from Kashmir, Mir Sarwar.

Shot in the valley’s beautiful landscapes, the song has been sung by Mudasir Ali and the video features Ahmer Haider and Mudasir Ali.

Mudasir has composed and sung several Bollywood songs, while Ahmer Haider has also made a mark in acting and is known for his performances in movies like Lines, Jihad, BioscopeWala.

Sarwar said the idea behind the Kashmiri version is the popularity of the original song.

“After seeing the song getting popular in Urdu, I realized that we can compose it in Kashmiri language as well. So, I spoke to Mudasir Ali about it and he agreed to sing it,” Sarwar said.

“Rhyming the lyrics with the Urdu version was difficult, but Mehraj Nargis came to our rescue and wrote lyrics for the song,” he added.

Sarwar said they planned to release the song on Eid-ul-Azha but had to defer it due to some reasons.

“People are liking the song and it is a matter of happiness for me,” the director said.

The song has been produced by Assad Motion Picture & Safdar Arts and co-produced by Aly Studio and Seven2Creations.
