The everyone’s favorite band that gave hits like ‘sarr kiye yeh pahar’ and ‘sajni’ has decided to part ways. Bilal Maqsood and Faisal Kapadia took to strings’ official Facebook and Instagram page to announce the news.
The iconic duo wrote in their message “This post is a bit different from the usual. We have decided that today, 25/03/2021, is the day we graciously get to conclude Strings.
“The past 33 years have been incredible for both of us. It’s so rare to have the chance to be able to do things like this and we are infinitely grateful to all of our fans for making it possible. We hope you found it worthwhile as well,”
“While the band technically may not be together anymore, both of us share an inseparable bond that will connect us no matter where life takes us.”
The message ended with a “thank you so much for everything”.
