The singer explained how hurt he was that his old video went viral and is being misused by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) in a YouTube video. He clarified that he met PM Shehbaz last year in November at Sharif’s residence. He said that the video is being used as if PM Shehbaz is listening to a political song written for him in the PM house.
“I am a singer. I don’t have any political affiliations. I have also sung songs for PTI, but my song ‘Mian De Naray’ became very popular. Did Imran Khan not meet writer Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar and actor Shaan when he was the prime minister? Why can’t Shehbaz Sharif meet any artist? I hope people do not misuse our videos for their political gains.”
