Sickening to see you laugh on national TV in Pakistan at something the world stopped laughing at about 30 years back.Step into the future.

When the host of the show asked the artist if she followed cricket or not, she answered, “I do watch cricket matches and my heart broke when Vivian Richards went into a relationship with Neena Gupta. I wrote a couplet then. ‘Jo ladkiyan khud ko kehti hain malika-e-aliya, Unko fir milta hai Mr Kaliya'” (The girls who consider themselves the queen, eventually end up with a black man). Ramiz Raja was seen laughing at this comment.
