Muntazir (Hindi: मुंतज़िर, Urdu: مُنتظِر): "Expectant", "Waiting" is a song featured in season 10 of the Pakistani TV program "Coke Studio", aired in 2017.

The song tells the story of two lovers who are both expectant and unaware of each other's feelings, then encourages them to speak up.

The words "muntazir" (expectant) and "bekhaber" (heedless, unaware) can be either masculine or feminine; in the song, the same verses are sung alternately by the male singer (Danyal Zafar) and the female singer (Momina Mustehsan).

The lyrics and the music for this song were created by the Pakistani pop rock band "Strings", which is responsible for the production, direction, and many of the musical arrangements of the songs featured at Coke Studio.
