One of the highest-paid singers of Pakistan and the one whose Qawwalis make people forget their woes, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, is a Pakistani musician and a playback singer in Bollywood and Pakistani film industry. Born in 1974, Khan began singing publicly at the age of nine and later toured the UK with his uncle Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan's Qawwali group in 1985. In 2003, he made a debut in Bollywood when he sang the song 'Mann Ki Lagan' from the movie 'Paap'. After giving continuous hits in Hindi cinema for a decade, Khan performed at the Wembley Arena and Manchester Arena in 2012, where he played to a combined audience of 20,000 people, creating a record for the highest number of tickets sold. His song 'Zaroori Tha' from the 2014 album 'Back 2 Love' became the first Indian non-film song to cross 100 million views within two years on YouTube. From 'Chhaap Tilak' to 'Afreen Afreen', Khan gave many hit numbers on the music show 'Coke Studio'.
