(Laughs) You know I never thought that

don’t, but I love it and it was my hobby
so I do it. Oh and the answer to your
question is “After my medical college,
with the help of friends.
money is not the main factor for your
at all, but if I get something in the
process, I really don’t mind.
if I also get popular in the process
I wouldn’t mind that either. Honestly,
I would like it very much.

question we really want to ask is that
are you more of a doctor or a musician?
answer here would be that I like to
keep a balance. But at times I am more
towards music because it is very relaxing
and peaceful. With music I can express
if given a chance, would you go towards
haven’t really thought about it but
if given a chance, sure why not?
style of music is very different, why
did you select this…techno style?
has more upbeat and can make you move.
But I would like to say that I also
have a touch of sadness in my music

this feeling that my music won’t last
for too long.
do you think that?
lasts for ever. Plus if you lose your

I am a human. I might lose ground and
then I will disappear along with my
those are facts. But don’t worry, as
you said my style is different so for
the time being I don’t have any competition
and I feel that my unique style will
always be mine. There might be other
new styles that might bring me down
but in my own style I am the only one.
I also feel that my uniqueness might
be my down fall. But what can I say.
No one knows the future.

very loudly) No comments.
you are popular…so no girl friend or
louder) please…no questions like that.
popularity. Now that you are popular,
how does that feel?
feels ok, but I not into flaunting it.
It feels good if people recognize me
out side. What really feels good is
when they stare at me in the corners
of their eyes. You can almost feel that
they want to approach me and ask if
I am Fay Khan or not but they refrain
from doing that. I really want to know
what goes through their heads once they
are alone or I am long gone. At times
they really want to approach me but
are afraid to. That’s the best part.
make techno, but what kind of music
do you listen to?
depends on my mood but I am more into
techno. Otherwise I listen to all kinds
of music. Like ATB, Enigma, Led Zeppelin
you have confidence problems in the
Singing? Oh no, never…I was always very
confident when it came to singing.
Life when were you really afraid?
but I really don’t remember. I usually
went with flow of life.
dreams or wishes?
I said, I just go with the flow. I take
what life gives me.

yes…to make more fusions or like Robert
and Khanan said on Khyber Beats….Confusions
(Laughs like crazy).

played by Arif Qazi and Awaad Ahad Khan
on AVT Khyber)
I mean to live.
that…hummmmm well I am not sure but
if I had to live abroad or was given
the opportunity, I would go to Canada.
Because I hear it is very peaceful there.
short tell me about how you came to
a very interesting story. You see, In
Peshawar I along with two of my friends
made a band. First we couldn’t come
up with a name for the band but later
we decided to call it “Malangan”. We
did a concert but I was making all the
music. Then one day one of the members
went abroad. Soon after that the other
member got a job. I was left alone and
I came to Islamabad, but I didn’t stop
making music. One day, I went to Marriott
Islamabad and they played my CD. I remember
they were playing Zulfan. Mr. Hamid
Shamshaad (director, producer) heard
it and came to me. He told me about
AVT Khyber and I was very interested.
So he called me over and next thing
I knew I was in a video. The rest is
message to the youngsters, fans or other
musicians inspired by you?
can I say hummmm? I my self am a message
or better yet. I need good messages
