Vasay Chaudhry has subtly mocked the Ruet-e-Hilal committee over their Eid announcement process.
Responding to Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of ARY Digital Network Jerjees (JJ) Seja, who questioned why the committee needs a prolonged live press conference, Chaudhry said: “JJ bhai. Some people get to be on TV just twice a year and only for 30 minutes each.”
“Not everyone is as lucky as Badami,” he added cheekily. “So let them have some limelight as well yaar.”
Later, replying to Vasay’s comments, Seja said: “Then some people should start doing what Waseem Badami does and limelight will automatically be their way.”
“Till then please footage zaya na karein,” he added.
Badami, who is currently hosting Shaan-e-Ramzan on ARY Digital, is one of Pakistan’s most renowned television hosts.
Meanwhile, the Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee of Pakistan is the department which announces the sighting of the new moon and Eid, twice a year.
It’s head is now Maulana Abdul Khabir Azad assisted by 150 observatories of the Pakistan Meteorological Department.
