After his debut album Billo De Ghar (1995) sold over 40.3 million copies worldwide, Pakistani singer Abrar-ul-Haq became a household name and never looked back. This time, the "King of Pakistani pop" is back with another Punjabi banger.

Rano From Chandigarh, which serves as Abrar's latest music track, has already amassed hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube. With its classic Punjabi beats and the Sohni Surat singer's energetic voice, the song is set to become a hit.

The music video features the Nach Punjaban famed singer's nephew and the evergreen actress Iman Ali.

The singer was reportedly given 2 to 3 options between the star of the music video out of which the Bol famed actress was finally selected owing to her versatility and acting skills. Abrar reportedly lauded Ali for her impeccable acting skills and added that “she is a capable and serious artist.”

Ali previously starred in the music video of Sanoon Tere Naal from Abrar's album Main Gudi Aap Chalawan Ga.

In response to the question stating, “Will Rano also be portrayed as a typical traditional playful Punjabi girl?” director Asad Mumtaz replied that typecasting lead roles in music video with stereotypical portrayals became old fashioned and that his music video will be “set in a different space with a different story.” 

On the musical front, Abrar released his album Billo Returns Aithay Rakh in 2016. Paar with Bohemia, Chamkeeli, Billo, Bhabhi, and Ballay Ballay are among his hit songs in recent years.
