Bollywood Singer Lakhwinder Wadali's sufi love song Benaqab proves scars are beautiful

MUMBAI: Taking the legacy of the renowned Wadali Brothers, Bollywood singer Lakhwinder Wadali is all set to treat his audience with a heart-melting song, Benaqab.

Featuring Rehmat Rattan, music score by Aar Bee, lyrics penned by M.S. Abid, the song, Benaqab talks about how scars are beautiful and surpasses the pre-conceived definition of "beauty" as per society's standards. Set in the backdrop of Kashmir's scenic landscapes and its tranquility, Benaqab weaves the definition of true love through its lyrics.
