Farhan Saeed Butt (born 14 September 1984) is a Pakistani singer-songwriter and actor. Farhan was the former lead vocalist of the Pakistani band Jal. He is the owner of the restaurant Cafe Rock. He has sung in Urdu.
In September 2011, in an exclusive interview with The Express Tribune, Farhan shocked the fans claiming that he has left Jal to pursue a solo career despite Goher Mumtaz offering him to continue his solo career while being a part of Jal. On 8 September 2011, Farhan's departure was confirmed by Jal's guitarist Goher Mumtaz who wished him luck for his solo career.
He made his Bollywood-singing breakthrough in 2014 by contributing a song to Vikram Bhatt's Creature 3D in 2014. The song, Naam-e-Wafa, is a romantic-duet with Indian vocalist Tulsi Kumar as the co-singer and Mithoon as the composer.
Farhan started his acting career by debuting in a leading role in the 2014 Hum TV drama serial De Ijazat Jo Tu alongside Sohai Ali Abro, Saba Hameed and Javaid Sheikh. He then played the lead role as Mohid Shuja in ARY Digital's Mere Ajnabi alongside Urwa Hocane who was the female lead. He has also played a lead role of Arsh in drama Udaari as a lawyer along with female lead Urwa. Along with acting in the drama, Farhan has collaborated with Hadiqa Kiani for the OST that has topped music charts all over Pakistan.
