Article Photos: Whale of a tale: Pakistani fishmonger now pop star 1/2

In this picture taken on Thursday, Dec. 27, 2012, Pakistani fans receive Muhammad Shahid Nazir, center, who sings "One Pound Fish," upon his arrival from London at Lahore airport in Pakistan. The 31-year-old Pakistani fishmonger catapulted to fame in recent weeks in the unlikeliest of circumstances: while hawking frozen snapper and mackerel for one British pound ($1.61) at Queens Market in London. âOne Pound Fish changed my whole life,â said Nazir, who returned to Pakistan to a heroâs welcome and has been inundated with requests to perform and do advertisements. âI am so happy now.â(AP Photo/Hamza Ali)
