By Iman Zia | 7 Dec, 2017

A year ago today, Junaid Jamshed and his wife were killed in a plane crash that took off from Chitral airport, along with 45 passengers. The heartbreaking news shook the nation, as it came to learn to live without a man of such wonder and talent. A year later, and Pakistan still remembers the legend, forever cherishing his memories and tremendous contribution to Pakistani culture and music.

According to news channel ‘Samaa TV,’ Junaid Jamshed’s last phone call came from close friend Salman Ahmed

Salman expressed his admiration to news publication for Junaid, with whom he was incredibly close with. Salman went on to express how his latest song is dedicated to his friend. ‘Door’ is slated for release on December 16th, and is a tribute to Junaid.
