After the PSL Ceremony, Ali Azmat was called on a show with Waseem Badami (A popular Pakistani Journalist). This shows marked the beginning of another controversy which brought Ali Zafar (Pakistan’s Biggest Pop Icon) into the scene. 

After Waseem Badami had asked Ali Azmat for his point of view on the PSL anthem, the popstar linked its disapproval on social media with another artist who had allegedly hired bloggers to propagate this negativity against the PSL anthem. 

Ali Zafar’s Witty Reply

In line with his charming personality, Ali Zafar uploaded a video in which he brilliantly trolled Ali Azmat on his allegation. This video was shared by thousands of people around the country and quickly trended in the ranks of social media enthusiasts as well. The message was very simple: One should not accuse people of something regarding which they have no proof. 

However, we pray that our pop icons can sort out their differences and cooperate with one another for the uplifting of the music industry in Pakistan.

In addition to this, Ali Zafar was also requested on a show by Waseem Badami to work on and introduce another music video for PSL, on which he responded in a positive manner.
