Cute! The original desi diva!
Before Lady Gaga was every fabulous person's ring tone...
Before Madonna was blasted at every fabulous dance club...
Before Barbra Streisand serenaded fabulous audiences with her ballads....
There was Madam Noor Jehan....teaching South Asia how to be fabulous!
Thanks to Mohammad Ahmed for sharing the above clip!
