When I was watching the video, although I thought it was Hindi being spoken, certainly it has a clear Punjabi flavour (i.e: lots of guys wearing coloured turbans in the background). So that's why I remembered I had heard that word in a Bhagra song.

What does "qurban" mean?

Btw, nice song yours as well! :D


Qurban means sacrifice, immolation. Also, figuratively, it is a way to address a loved one

I created a webpage with the lyrics of this video, and word-by-word dictionary search:
http://hindustanisongs.com/song/HINDI/zaroori-tha

It is in Urdu, too.

This is a ghazal by Ghalib, sung as a qawwali by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. Each line of the ghazal is available here in Urdu, Devanagari, and roman scripts, plus translation and commentary.

Doesn't Coke Studio Pakistan have any songs like that? :hmm:

Speaking of Urdu pop songs, although this song, "Aap Jaisa Koi," is a Bollywood song (from the 1980 movie Qurbani), it was a major pop hit throughout the subcontinent and the debut of Pakistani pop singer Nazia Hassan:

This is "Hawa Hawa," a Pakistani song that also became a big hit in the subcontinent but is based on the Iranian (Persian) song "Havar Havar," courtesy of Eskandar Bhai:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lrusoeIvetQ
And "Jawan Jawan," a Bollywood version of the same song in Billoo Badshah (1990), also courtesy of Eskandar Bhai:

Later, apparently, Bollywood pretty much just copied the Pakistani song in the movie Insaaf Apne Lahoo Se (1994). :lol:

A similar thing happened with Abrar-ul-Haq's song "Billo" (which I just posted in the Punjabi music thread). After the original was such a hit in Pakistan, it was turned into a Hindi song in India:

Subcontinental advertising music is way more advanced than North American commercial jingles... Two fun examples:
