Umair Jaswal hits back at rockstar Ali Azmat


ISLAMABAD: Hitting back at rockstar Ali Azmat, Umair Jaswal dubbed the leak video of the senior artist, in which he is criticising junior singers, as ‘funny’.

“It’s really funny. First of all, I would like to say to Ali that you are entitled to your own opinion but you can’t force it to anyone. That’s what I believe in, and it’s a time that you too come in future and become relevant,” Jaswal said in a video message.

The message comes two days after a video got leaked in which Ali Azmat is seen saying: “Aisay hee star koi thora ban jata hai cheekhain maar kay. O bhai ganay bananay partay hain aur phir continuously ganay bananay partay hain [You don’t become a star just like that, by screaming and shouting. You have to compose songs and compose them continuously.]”

He then took a dig at singers who have ventured into acting. “Do mahinay ganay nahi banay toh dramay mein aa gaye. Hit ho gaye. Dramay mein hit ho gaye toh star ban gaye [You can’t make music for a couple of months, do a TV serial instead. It becomes a hit and you become a star.]”

Na Re Na singer is also seen taking a jab at Umair Jaswal when a person sitting with him points out that Sami Meri Vaar was a big hit. “Is Sami Meri Vaarhis own song? It’s a folk song. They made random changes to it and turned it into a mess.”

Jaswal has responded to the leaked video. He thanked the fans for their support.

‘It’s ok. He is an elderly man. Please forgive him. That’s how it happens sometimes,’ he told his fans.
