Pop star with a celebrity status, Abrar-Ul-Haq on numerous occasions, was voted the most popular singer of Pakistan. One of the most recognizable faces in Pakistan and abroad, with a huge fan following. All albums released so far have been a mega success and been acclaimed both nationally and internationally. This is for the first time Abrar-Ul- Haq is making a stand in the Indian Market with his new Project Preeto. Recently he was in Delhi to promote his album in Chemlsford Club. The album is to be released by Tegson Records Pvt Ltd, by Mid-June, it has 10 Songs, with 6 Video’s to help promote the album.

It’s the first time Abrar Ul-Haq will be making a move into the Indian markets. And for this a press conference was organized in Delhi. Stating the reason for launching his album in India he said “India is a very good market for music and very body has a dream to have fame all over the word. My other projects gained a lot of popularity; I hope the Indian will like my Album. It was fun to record this album and to launch it India since there are many things common between the two countries.”

Abrar would also be visiting, Delhi, Ajmer, Chandigarh and Mumbai, to Promote his Album in India before end of June’2006. Abrar's strength and weakness lies in his lyrics that are hilarious, scintillating, and inane at the same time depending upon your state of mind. He has on uncanny talent of taking ordinary things in life, pulling lyrics out of thin air to match them, and turning them into commercial successes.

Abrar-Ul-Haq is one of Pakistan’s most distinctive vocalists whose ascent to acme is not only portentous; it has also eventuated in somewhat redefining the local music scene. Since we have many groups and soloists soliciting attention of small audience, everyone must take up a diverse identity and make their lucid mark. It is hard to say Abrar set out to become what he is today since his debut album had an assortment of songs. Nevertheless, when his "Billo Day Ghar" (BDG) broke all records of popularity in south East Asia, he must have had inkling which path to follow. Before starting his career, Abrar was a teacher in The Aitchison College. He wanted to sing but his family did not allow it dismissing it as waste of time. Abrar attempted one song BDG and went to Network Television Marketing as they aired several music shows to promote new talent. Initially, he was rejected on the grounds that his style would not click with the audience. He pressed on and they aired it on Music Channel Charts, a show that enjoyed a hundred percent viewer ship of the Pakistani music lovers. The song entered the top ten list and, within a fortnight, climbed to numero uno to stay there for some time. Soon, Abrar launched his debut album and the cassette sold millions of copies because everyone wanted to go to BDG! He had made his indelible mark on the music scene and he soon started his work on his next project.

"Majajni" was his next release that seriously established him as a naughty singer! His popularity surpassed age, gender, creed, and social barriers. He made songs that his fans hummed privately and his albums sold like hot cakes on a rainy winter evening. He swept the nation with Abrar craze and even our movies featured various versions of his songs. Sitting straight on the back of the mare called success with reins firmly in his hands. Abrar launched his third album "Bay Ja Cycle Tay" and decided to build a hospital in memory of his mother as well. His fans donated generously while his emulators pointed fingers and found faults with him. Abrar pressed on, heedless of what the world said.

“Beh Ja Cycle Tay” the third mega release album with 8 million copies sold.“Assan Jaana Mall o Mall” was fourth mega success with 12 million copies sold. “Nacha Main Audhay Naal” fifth mega hit album. Since its release few months ago, more than 4 million copies sold to date.
