Popular host Anoushey Ashraf has revealed why she was against Shoaib Akhtar’s remarks over the PSL anthem “Groove Mera.”
Anoushey Ashraf was invited to Ahsan Khan’s talk show alongside Ayesha Omer. The host asked her why she was against Akhtar’s remarks, to which she responded by saying, “He [Shoaib Akhtar] went ahead and said that the song is terrible.”
She said, “I said to him, “do not degrade artists.” She said everyone is entitled to their opinion, but instead of bashing the artists, the team behind the song, you can say you didn’t like it. The singers work hard to create songs, and that “personal attack on somebody’s art and creativity is not warranted.”
Watch the clip below from the Interview:
Groove Mera featuring Young Stunners, Aima Baig, and Naseebo Lal was a new song when PSL was about to begin last year. The song wasn’t our usual but featured artists from different genres, which garnered mixed reviews in the beginning. However, it became a fan favorite later on.
Akhtar had uploaded a lengthy video on his YouTube channel where he was expressing how he hated the song and belittling the artists and the team behind the song. He uploaded a short clip on his Instagram too. He wrote, “Really disappointed by the anthem this year. Is this how you’re taking PSL brand up? Going down every year. Kon banata hai yeh, he said in an Instagram clip uploaded on his profile.”
At the time, Ashraf has left a comment saying, “Oh dear, this is in bad taste. One thing to not like a song, another thing to run down artists musicians this way. Big fan of @imshoaibakhtar but not the way he’s bashing the new anthem. Some people, including many of your friends, fans, and family like the track. Difference of opinion is welcome, degrading
someone’s work isn’t. Don’t like the track, cool. Hating on it this way? Not cool”.
