Exactly four years ago today. A PIA passenger plane crashed near Havelian in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, killing all 47 people on board. Leading Naat-Khawan Junaid Jamshed was among those killed.
The journey that started from the concert hall and took different turns. Took a U-turn, stopped and turned, finally ended forever on December 7 on a hill near the Havelian.
Junaid Jamshed himself says that I wanted to be a fighter pilot, I couldn’t, I wanted to be a doctor, I couldn’t. I wanted to be an engineer, but I couldn’t. Didn’t want to be a singer but became one.
But Junaid did not stop at the singing stage. After gaining fame, honour and wealth in this field, he once again changed his direction and left the glare of showbiz and went to the world of religion.
At the same time, he started a clothing business called J. Dot, which is one of the most prominent fashion brands in Pakistan today.
Vital Signs song ‘Dil Dil Pakistan’ is considered as the second national anthem of the country.
