Pakistani actor-singer Ali Zafar may sing a qawwali soon. Zafar sang one last week in Pakistan at an awards function as a tribute to Amjad Sabri, who was shot dead in Karachi in June this year.

A filmmaker has approached the Tere Bin Laden actor to sing a qawwali for a Punjabi movie, according to a press release. Ali will be seen singing the qawwali in a special sequence in the film. The Mere Brother Ki Dulhan actor will also have few dialogues in the scene, for which he is working on his Punjabi.
