Pakistan’s pop singer Ali Azmat recently appeared on Ahmad Pansota’s show and talked about Pakistani Music and Arts. He also talked about the veteran singer Noor Jehan, a musical legend who is celebrated transnationally.

While Talking about the music industry of Pakistan’s transition over the years, the Jazba Junoon singer mentioned: “In my childhood, Noor Jehan used to sing on a show draped in Saari with big earrings and extra makeup on. We used to hate that woman.”

Passing ageist comments, he said: “Looked like a meatball, she was an old age woman at that time and we used to think that it’s not necessary for us to watch it.”


“This was the time when we accepted the other culture and it became a norm later on,” he added.

While mentioning the American society, he said that they are also not very fond of the sensationalism and forbid their children to do drugs and adopt it.

He also said that he is entitled to reject that. “I’m not a person that if Madonna is appearing on screen and I will stick my tongue out,” said Azmat while sticking his tongue out, adding, “Yes it happened but after few minutes someone said to close it, otherwise a fly will enter in your mouth.”

Meanwhile, the said remarks were strongly opposed by Ahmad Pansota.
