The Masterminds Behind the Soul-Wrenching Visuals
Renowned director, Abdullah Haris was holding the reins of this piece of art. In a recent post, the director shares the idea and vision behind the heart wrenching visuals portrayed brilliantly in Jani Door Gaye’s music video, he says, “The video is based on my personal experience of how I saw my mother realise her time for departure, how she prepared herself and how I saw my father know of her demise before her demise.”
Along with the loss of Abdullah’s mother, the video is also influenced by the loss of Hadiqa Kiani’s mother and therefore, the concept is very close to their hearts. With such strong vision, it was no wonder that the music video depicts the tale of separation, loneliness and the loss of your most beloved ones so effortlessly.
On the production side the Qawwali has been recorded and arranged by Irfan Kiani who is a renowned music producer and has been a sound partner in Hadiqa’s musical career.
Kudos to the team who brought the visuals alive along with Hadiqa’s melodious soul-stirring vocals.
