What if we told you Fawad Khan and Atif Aslam are judging a Battle of Bands together (and you thought all you're getting this year is a mildly disappointing new season of Coke Studio)? No, there are no parallel dimensions involved, the two Pakistani sensations are indeed judging a music reality show called Pepsi Battle of the Bands, along with actor Meesha Shafi. The best of Pakistani bands are battling it out at the band battle, which you need to keep up with.
Fawad started out as the frontman of Lahore's alt-rock band Entity Paradigm in 2000, but left the band in 2012, to pursue acting. The Khubsoorat star joins fellow rocker Atif Aslam to judge the Pepsi Battle of the Bands, which aims at reviving the depleting band culture in Pakistan. The reality show, which premiered this July, features 20-30 bands from all over Pakistan, and also features guest performance by names like Zeb Bangash (the composer for Lipstick Under My Burkha) and Sara Haider.
Fawad and Atif also sang the launch song for the show, and performed for the music video, which is the hottest thing you'll see on the Internet today. Needless to say, the show is bringing back the rocker Fawad, and his fandom isn't looking for much else right now. There's also some backstage footage of Fawad and Atif jamming together on the sets of the show, which might cure all the anger you have over Coke Studio Season 10. You're welcome.
