Adnan Siddiqui making fun of Sarfaraz Ahmed for being totla has not gone down well with people
Ramazan shows can be a pretty great thing to binge on in the evenings when after stuffing yourself with iftari all you need is something mindless to watch. One of the most popular ones is Jeeto Pakistan, now known as Jeeto Pakistan League.The show is pretty fun to watch except when in a recent episode Adnan Siddique went too far with joking Sarfaraz Ahmed.
Recently, Adnan Siddiqui got uncomfortable when Aamir Liaquat joked about deaths of Bollywood actors that Adnan worked with
Adnan Siddiqui appeared as a guest on Aamir Liaquat’s game show ‘Jeeway Pakistan.’ Aamir bhai made a joke about how Adnan has worked with Irrfan Khan and Sridevi and both of them passed away. Adnan had instantly distanced himself from the distasteful joke, saying he doesn’t think the matter is worth joking about.
The public backlash from that joke led to Adnan Siddiqui and Aamir Liaquat apologizing for the incident.
Now the same Adnan Siddiqui recently joked about Sarfaraz Ahmed for his totla pan in Jeeto Pakistan
This happened in the episode where Aijaz Aslam and Nadia Khan appeared as celebrity guests. During a light argument in the game show, Adnan Siddiqui mocked Sarfaraz’s accent. This, coming from the actor who just recently apologized to insensitive jokes, is quite surprising.
What a shame Adnan Siddiqui, making fun of someone like that, these celebrities live in their own bubble

They couldn’t believe that Adnan could stoop this low after what went down with the Aamir Liaquat incident
Is this the same Adnan Siddiqui who condemned Amir Liaquat's crass joke? https://t.co/VgOSv9PfVs

Where are those who were supporting Adnan Siddiqui after Amir Liaquat's show?
He played sensibly in the previous show because that joke could effect his image in the international industry and now he didn't hesitate to mock Sarfraz Ahmed. https://t.co/fB4mZS1lhT

Didn’t expect this from Adnan Siddiqui. Now what’s the difference between him & Aamir Liaquat?

People chalked this behavior as sheer disrespect toward Sarfaraz Ahmed
You can't do that Adnan Siddiqui.
He is our captain. https://t.co/d8bjbRSNfD

Such despicable behavior from respectable celebrities – mocking someone for a physical trait that they have no control over, or body shaming someone opens that person to more bullying from the general public who thinks it’s okay to do it because a celebrity also did it on national TV. Additionally, it’s also extremely hypocritical of Adnan Siddiqui to call out Aamir Liaquat on his insensitive joke but then go on to do the same to someone else. We hope Adnan can find the courage to apologize for this behavior as swiftly as he did for the other one.
