Mumbai: Pakistani actor-singer Ali Zafar will be paying a tribute to legendary qawwali singer Amjad Sabri by singing a qawwali for the first time.

“It’s a big honour for me to pay homage to a great artist besides hosting a grand celebration of one of our biggest award shows,” Ali said in a statement here.

Zafar will be singing the qawwali at the 15th Lux Style Awards in Pakistan.

Besides this, Ali will also be hosting the show for the first time.
