Lastly, in season 10, 39 artists joined hands to celebrate 70 years of Pakistan. We can see some of the artists who have been repeadtedly taking part e.g. Qurutulain Baloch, and Ali Sethi. We were expecting to see Ali Azmat in 70 years of Pakistan as well but we saw him only in Season 8 and 9 tribute. Furthermore, we surely are happy to see Farhan Saeed, Sajad Ali, Ali noor, Shafqat Amanat Ali, and others in 70 years of independence song.
All three have been beautiful composed and directed. Its hard to say which one is better. We are going to say its definitely a tie.
Hope to see more in the coming years.
