Ali Haider is a Pakistani Singer and Actor. He grew up in the neighbourhood of Firdous Colony in Karachi, and was pursuing a degree in engineering at NED University when his showbiz career began.
He has had numerous hits in the early 90s such as Purani Jeans, Qarar, Chahat. He also had a big hit later in the 1990s with Chand Sa Mukhra. Since the 1990s, Ali Haider has produced over sixteen music albums of which dozens of songs were top hits and became very popular. These earned him a place among the top singers of Pakistan.
His first album was Jane Jan Sun which included the title songs of jawaniyan, and Dhoop Kinare sung along with Nayyara Noor. This album was released by EMI and is obsolete in market; however, it may be found in some collections. The 2nd album he released was titled Chahat, the music of which was given by Bunny and had a song with Sadaf Munir (now Sadaf Iqbal). That album was purchased by HMV India. Two of the most popular songs from the album were Chahat and Ajnabi.
His next album, Pakola Album did moderately well with songs such as Zaalim Nazron Say and Laila making it into the charts. His sixth album, Dastaan is known to be the best album Haider has produced since his career started. It shot straight to number one and brought him great popularity at that time. In this album he produced a variety of music genres that suited pretty much anyone. The songs responsible for his popularity were Walawai, Papa Mummi and Ranjha Heer.
After some time, Haider released the album The Best of Ali Haider, which pretty much summoned up that he is ending his music career. The album included all his major hits and favorite songs he had produced in the past. Some of the songs included in this collection were Purani Jeans, Walawai, Qarar and Sandesa.
The two experiments that he did in the course of his career were his debut film, Chalo Ishq Laraein, and his first trance album, Jadu. Jadu was released before its time. At that time, trance music was relatively new in UK, it wasn't there in India and it wasn't in Pakistan at all. No one had done trance music in Urdu and it was a big jump from 'Saiyaan' and 'Mahi', plus the video was very bold too.
So with a very mediocre response from Jadu, the grapevine got that he was at the crossroad of his musical career, but he proved everyone wrong one more time by giving his hit single Chandni Raatein, which was an instant hit among the masses. Even his next album, Tera Naam Liya Tou was a huge success in Pakistan and especially UK, and made it to the number one spot on BBC Asia. His whole tour was a hit because of its title track.
Haider released his 15th Album in 2007 titled Jaaney Do. This album also featured three previous songs with significant modifications. The all time favorite Purani Jeans made a return with a hard rock format. Qarar and Agar Pyar from the 1993 album Sandesa were also featured.
Besides singing, he has acted in numerous TV serials on PTV. Among the successful dramas was Chand Sa Mukhra, which used his hit song as the theme music. He also sang the theme music for the serial Chandni Raatein. He has a large fan following in Pakistan and India and with South Asian expatriates around the world.
His last Album Kee Jana Main Kuan was released in the year 2012 by EMI music india, which was like his comeback music album focusing on the sayings and poetry of Sufi saints like Baba Bulley shah and Sultan Bahu to name a few.
And now, hoping to revive the pop genre once more, composing songs, which have meaning, love and compassion, he is all set to release his new album Bachpan Ki Badami Yadein. He doesn’t want to get mixed up with what people say, rather just wants his work to speak for him. And with this sole thought in his mind he has taken this u- turn and returned to his first love, which is music.
