After portraying many romantic roles on silver screen, Bollywood heartthrob John Abraham is now all set to mesmerise audience with his role as an angel in a Pakistani music album.

The music album Koi Aanay Wala Hai by famous Pakistani rock band 'Strings' will feature the actor as an angel who falls in love with a beautiful girl after seeing her in trouble on earth and decides to become human to be with her forever.

"When Bilal came to me with the concept of an angel, we decided only John could do justice with the role because he possesses the similar kind of personality we required for this character," said band member Faisal Kapadia.

Shot in the beautiful locations of Kuala Lumpur and Malaysia, John will be seen doing some extraordinary flying stunts in the getup of an angel with wings.

"John became a very dear friend when we were working for Zinda. We decided to team up with John for Koi Aanay Wala Hai and he is perfect for the role," Faisal says.

When asked about the concept of Album, Faisal said, "When we gave the title Koi Aanay Wala Hai, both of us wanted to make the video reflecting the concept. All the songs in the album revolve around the story of an angel."

It has been a long break of four years for 'Strings' to come up with this album but the duo are confident for the success of the album and promise that their latest album will become a chartbuster too.

"We toured a lot during this time to perform in concerts. These four years have been very great for us. Now, we are back with lot of energy," Faisal explains about their disappearance from the music scene.

"It is our best work so far and we have worked very hard for one and half years on it. The effort has been very satisfying and we are confident that 'Strings' fans will love Koi Aanay Wala Hai." says Faisal.

Inspired by the contemporary British rock and music of 60s and 70s, this indipop video album has eight energetic tracks composed by Faisal Kapadia and Bilal Maqsood.

Koi Aanay Wala Hai is being released in India by Sony BMG on May 12, which is hoping the album to create a sensation in India.

"The music and the video are exceptional. We are sure of a great response to this album," says Shridhar Subramaniam, Managing Director of Soni BMG.

Strings is one of the few Pakistani bands to achieve international fame besides Junoon and Vital Sings. Band members Faisal and Bilal are well known names in India for the hits like Dhaani and Najanay Kyu. The duo have also worked in films like Zinda and Shootout At Lokhandwala.

Strings has seen many ups and downs in its long journey. The band had started with four college students Bilal, Faisal, Rafiq, Kareem in 1990. But the band broke up after their second album, Strings 2 in 1992.

Years later, Bilal and Faisal came back together to reorganise the band to achieve international success for hit albums like Duur and Dhaani.
