“I Don’t Think Jaun Bhai Likh Saktay Hain Yeh:” Sahir Lodhi Under Fire For Doubting Jaun Elia’s Poetry!

We’re yet to witness a Ramzan where there are no controversies involving the Ramzan shows being broadcasted by various channels, and this year is no different.

Pakistanis had barely moved on from the racer Aamir Liaquat and his naagin dance that Sahir Lodhi gave them yet another reason to be upset! In one of his Ramzan shows, two contestants were having a poetry stand-off when one of them iterated a couplet by Jaun Elia. And while he was at it, Sahir Lodhi did not seem too satisfied with the verse as it made no sense to him and he started doubting the authenticity of the verse and Jaun Elia’s writing capabilities.

And the netizens are furious!
