An Indian artist has paid homage to late Pakistani folk singer Shaukat Ali, who passed away in Lahore on Friday (April 2, 2021), by making his statue.
A renowned Indian artist from Moga District in India’s Punjab Manjeet Singh said the statue of Shaukat Ali will be erected on the highway.
Before Shaukat Ali, Manjeet has also made statues of well-known social figure Abdul Sattar Edhi and poet Baba Najmi.
Shaukat Ali, who is known for his war-time patriotic songs such as Saathion Mujahidon Jaag Utha Hai Sara Watan, Mera Puttar Pakistan Da, and Apna Quaid Aik Hai among many others, had been unwell for the past several years.
The Ghazal maestro is one of the most creative and inventive artists of the Pakistani music industry, with a singing career spanning five decades. He is also a recipient of the Pride of Performance award.
