Nabeel Shaukat Ali (Urdu: نبيل شوکت علی‎; born August 29, 1989) is a Pakistani singer. He contested in Sur Kshetra, a singing talent show the musical battle between teams of two neighboring countries: Pakistan and India aired simulcast on Geo TV, Sahara One, Colors TV, AAG TV as well as Rishtey. He ultimately came first in the finals and was declared the winner of the show.[1]

Personal life[edit]

Ali was born in Lahore, Pakistan. His elder brother is also a singer. He started singing at a very early age with his father Shaukat Ali, he learnt harmonium from his father.[2]


Ali always wanted to be a singer from his childhood. His first appearance was in Azme Alishan National Song Competition (Season 2), in which he performed in front of top Pakistani musicians like Strings and Arshad Mehmood and was declared the winner.[3] Azme Alishan also produced a music video named Hai Yeh Pakistan, sung by Ali and it topped the charts of many Pakistani Music channels.

After that, he participated in Sur Kshetra. There were 5 finalist chairs at the start of the show. Sara Raza Khan was the first contestant to sit on a finalist chair based on the decision of the jury. Mulazzim Hussain became the second finalist after winning the face off. Yashraj Kapil sat on the third finalist chair as the captain Himesh Reshammiya left it up to the judges to decide the third finalist from his team. Budhaditya Mukherjee became the fourth finalist after winning the face off for the fourth chair. The battle for the fifth chair proved to be the most exciting as Nabeel from Pakistan and Diljaan from team India went head to head in the face off. There was a lot of drama after the face off as both the contestants sang really well and it became very tough for the jury members to decide who should be the fifth finalist Asha Bhosle wanted Diljaan to be the finalist while Abida Parveen wanted Nabeel to be the fifth finalist. The neutral judge Runa Laila refused to take the decision and threatened to walk out of the show. After much drama it was finally decided that there would be six finalists instead of five and hence both Diljaan and Nabeel made it to the finals. In the Grand Finale, Ali won the title by beating Diljaan in the face-off round.[4]
