Befiker has been written, composed, recorded and shot keeping in mind a simple rule of life; Live and Let Live – Be carefree, live in the moment and follow your heart. The music video for Befiker was shot based on the same theme which is visible in the colorful cinematography.

Conceptualized and Directed by Saad Hayat, the video has been shot at two different locations: the impressive and colorful Kiran Gali [Baghdadi Mohallah] in Lyaari and the beautiful fishing community at the Mubarak Village beach located on the shore of Arabian Sea in District West of Karachi

“For the video, we collaborated with the Kiran Foundation. Kiran Gali had all these multi-colored buildings so we decided to shoot it over there. The opening shot is a one take which was pretty difficult to execute given the circumstances at that time. During the chorus there is a signature dance step that the band members perform”, tells Rehan Nazim and Saad Hayat.

With composition and vocals by both Saad Hayat [who also features on keys] and Rehan Nazim [who also composed the melody and wrote the song lyrics], Befiker features Mohsin Raza Shah on guitars, Bradley D’Souza on bass and guitars and Ajay Harri on drums. Befiker has been produced at Saad Hayat Studio in Karachi.

Choreographed by Rehan Nazim, the music video for Befiker features Asghar Ali Ghanchi as Co-Director & Cinematographer, Assistant Directors Asim Baluch and Adil Baluch, Art Director and Hasan Ahmed, Make-up artist: Sikandar Khan, Line producer Moiz Baluch, Location manager Zain-Ul-Abideen, Production managers Azeem Arif and Faizi with edit and post by Dominic Andrews, S. Shakir Ali (Post Waala) and Kashif Ahmed Khan. The video also features a cameo by young model & actress Zareen Khan.
