Mere Rashke Qamar” (Urdu: میرے رشک قمر‎; Hindi: “मेरे रश्के कमर”; lit. “My envy of the moon”) is a ghazal-qawwali written by lyricist Fana Buland Shehri and composed by the prominent Sufi singer of Pakistan, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. It was first performed in 1988 by Khan, and popularised by him and his nephew Rahat Fateh Ali Khan several times in different concerts.

It was recreated and released as a single on 5 April 2013 by A1melodymaster for the album Reformed; which released on 16 March 2017 with different renewed songs of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.

The song was recreated by lyricist Manoj Muntashir and composer Tanishk Bagchi for Milan Luthria’s 2017 Hindi film Baadshaho; written by Rajat Arora. It features original version of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s voice with new version of Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s voice. The video starring Ajay Devgn and Ileana D’Cruz; has been shot in different locales of BikanerJodhpur and Jaisalmer.

Very popular in India and Pakistan, the song is sung by many artistes and used as a cover for many parodies as well.

Here’s the effervescent Rojalin waxing mesmerizingly on the joy of love, separation, pain…notching up 74m+ views till date!!  Pity it’s only 3.04 mins:-(

In any other tongue the words would be roll off as trite.
