Noor-ul-Ain "Annie" Khalid (Punjabi, Urdu: عینی) is a Pakistani-born British singer and model. She rose to fame in Pakistan in 2006, after releasing the single "Mahiya"; the song was used in the Indian film Awarapan (2007) and became the most-played Pakistani song of 2005, 2006 and 2007.

Early life

Khalid was born in Lahore on 27 March 1987, to a father of Kashmiri descent and a mother of Yemeni descent. When she was six months old, the family left Pakistan and moved to East London; several years later, they moved to Essex.



Her first single, "Mahiya" became a massive hit in Pakistan, following its release in 2005. It was later used in the Indian film Awarapan.

On 25 November 2010, Khalid released her UK debut single "Be My Baby" along with the remix of the track done by British DJ Judge Jules. After meeting at a charity function, Khalid collaborated with the English–Norwegian boy band A1 for a single "Just 3 Words" and went on tour with them, performing in Norway and the UK. In 2011, Khalid was nominated as Best Female Singer at the Pakistan Media Awards.

In September 2013, she released the single "Boom Boom Danze" with Beenie Man.


She walked at the 2010 L'Oréal Karachi fashion week for BNS couture and in 2011 for Ammar Belal. She was featured in LOOK magazine in June 2011. The same month, she launched a café in Lahore, the AK Lounge.


She was appointed Norway's Red Cross Goodwill ambassador in 2011, after her efforts fundraising for Pakistani flood victims.

Personal life

She married Malik Noureed Awan in July 2012 in Lahore, but the couple later divorced. On 26 December 2014, Annie Khalid married Saad Ahmed Khan in Lahore, Pakistan. They have a daughter.
