Adil Najam

Earlier we had done a post on Javed Miandad’s memorable sixer off the very last ball of the match against India at Sharjah in 1986, which clinched the game for Pakistan. We had also included a video of that last over in the post.

During the discussion, a number of comments recalled how Javed Miandad was literally showered with money and gifts as a result of this feat, how Tauseef Ahmad (who was his last partner on the crease) got little or nothing and a policeman’s baton to boot, and also how an equally famous comic song on the incident was sung by Bushra Ansari.

Well, we did manage to find the song for you. Enjoy!

Bushra Ansari, of course, is one of the most versatile of PTV performers; remarkable both for her humourous and serious acting and a very good singer too. This may well be her single best remembered performance.It was done as part of Anwar Maqsood’s classic show Showtime and is a parody of singer Salma Agha’s famous song ‘humm jaisay kahaN tum ko qadardaan milaiN gay.’ Of course, in this paroday version, it turns into ‘Ik chikkay kay Javed to sou lakh milaiN gay.’

    Thanks for the reminder Tarar sahib! Yes, that was another good parody – turns out I was confused too (managed to reference two different singers simultaneously in my own mind). To clarify:

    Good Bushra Ansari parodies awaited at YouTube:

    1. Musarrat Nazir parody (mera long gawacha)
    2. Tahira Sayed parody (hai meri angoothian)
    3. Naheed Akhtar parody (unless I dreamt this one up)

    A, you must be talking about Tahira Syed – Malika Pukhraj’s daughter. apparently she wasn’t too happy with Bushra’s parody. seems a little tightly wound but she’s got one hell of a voice though.

    A really memorable performance – I seem to remember two more in this series of parodies that Bushra Ansari did of ‘iconic’ singers in the 1980s: one of Musarrat Nazir (mera long gawacha) and one of Naeem Bokhari’s ex-wife, whose name slips my mind (sorry!).

    I wonder when those will make it to YouTube.
