Danyal Zafar is the newest hottie in town! Before you glare at us for objectifying men, we apologise. Well, not really. He is a hottie and we’re sure he doesn’t mind being called one. But we aren’t taking anything away from his equally praiseworthy vocal chords. He, together with Momina Mustehsan, recently gave us Muntazir – ballad which might not have made it to our all-time favourite songs playlist, but it did put Danyal Zafar on the music map!
So we were more than eager to know who he wants to sing next with and what kind of dreams does he have. Hence, we took our 18 questions to Danyal Zafar and he was game enough to answer them!
