Ali Gul Pir – The Brains Behind – Waderai Ka Beta
By: Shabih Jafer
Ali Gul Pir, a comedian turned singer launched a video song “Waderai Ka Beta” from the album called “Vital Saeen” transfused from “Vital Sign”. Ali, inspired by the lows of traditional flamboyant domineers who stroll around the city in their lavish cars, specifically the kids of the said ‘Jageerdars’ who go around like they own the streets.
Talking to “Play TV” in an interview with the brains behind the song ‘Waderai Ka Beta’ – Ali Gul Pir, the guy who is pretty much same as he appeared in a video with extreme bliss of his joyful life, asking him what exactly pushed him to come out on the mainstream media and do this song; to which he replied that the main reason could be the oppression of the reality and the dominance of the ‘jageerdaar system’/feudalism in our country.
He is originally a standup comedian and did most of his work alone, However; he has been a part of a few improvisational comedy with Saad Haroon and will be [and has been] starring in a TV show ‘Light On Hai’ with Azfar Ali. The man has been roaming across the globe, at first he lived in Islamabad, then Canada for 6 years and currently he resides in Karachi.
Him being a comedian is also one of the reasons that allows him to take such a satirical approach to music and the aforementioned issues; says will keep on working with ‘Vital Saeens’ but they are only going to release their work via internet.
When asked in a sarcastic manner whether the hummer present in the video belonged to him, he said that his relative knew some one who could loan them their hummer for the shoot and concluded by saying ‘I am not that rich a man’ with a scoff.
Musically speaking his taste is quite diverse as he could listen to a track by Alan Faqeer or even some rap piece by Tupac and when asked whether his family supported him with his musical ventures, he said and I quote, “My mom says, Jo Karna Hai Karo Bas Raat Ko Khaanay Tak Gher Ajana.”
