Muhammad Ali Shehki

(Urdu: محمد علی شہکی) is a Pakistani pop singer of Iranian birth.

Along with Alamgeer or Alamgir, he set the trend of pop music only in Pakistan. When he started his career, he was young energetic student of NED University at Karachi, Pakistan. He is still loved by people for his contribution to music and his charming personality. His songs delivered message of love, patriotism and sincerity.

His voice quality is way much better than so many other hit singers but may be he didn't find good compositions at his peak time. His first song "Pyar kia mai ne dil diya main ne dil lia" produced by Ghazanfer Ali was a big hit of that time. He then sang the famous "Main bhi Pakistan ho" which is the most famous national song ever. Then Shehki produced another hit song "Allah Allah ker bhaiya" along with Allan Fakeer. This song beat all previous hit records. Shehki has sung almost all types of songs like classical, semi classical, rock n pop and jazzy stuff. He has won many national and International awards for his songs. Also he remained as a play back singer for some time. He was offered to sing as playback singer in bollywood but Ball Thakray, the Hindu extremist warned that if any Pakistani singer/actor comes here in India, he will shoot him. Desite, his song "Han Behli baar" was included in one of the Indian movies. He is out from Pak Music Industry but still he holds a high rank in the Pakistani Music Industry. He also tried his luck as an actor in Lollywood but was not much successful. As a singer, he is ranked among top 10 Pakistani singers ever.
