Ali Azmat Had A Wardrobe Malfunction During PSL Opening Ceremony And People Can't Stop Talking About It

By Sarmad Amer | 15 Feb, 2019

Ali Azmat performed for the PSL opening ceremony last night. He had reunited with his Junoon bandmates for the event and his performance is being talked about A LOT. Sadly, the reasons aren’t all very positive.

 

The PSL opening ceremony in Dubai, that happened last night, was rather underwhelming

What with Pitbull canceling at the last minute, the rushed performance and the very, very bad visual effects, it was mostly a lackluster affair in comparisons to years past.

As part of the performances for the ceremony, Junoon, the iconic sufi rock band had reunited

Ali Azmat, Salman Ahmed and Brian O’Connell were huge back in the 80’s and 90’s. They’ve recently reunited and have been performing at some high profile events. The PSL opening ceremony happened to be one of those.

While the crowd should have been excited for Junoon, most of the audience are much younger than Junoon’s original fan base and the kids weren’t exactly impressed

 

And then Ali Azmat had an awkward accident on stage

While running around, one of his shirt buttons flew open giving a peep at his stomach during the live ceremony.

 

Naturally, the awaam couldn’t control themselves from commenting about it

 

It became quite the highlight for some people who found the ceremony otherwise pretty boring

 

But then as it happens, people crossed the line and started becoming mean by fat shaming Ali

 

He’s a man who’s almost 50. It’s only natural that he’s not the definition of media-friendly physique that one may have become accustomed to seeing.

Even if he wasn’t the age, his wardrobe malfunction may be funny but nothing to fat shame him about. Your body and your relationship to it is a personal experience. Media and societal standards trying to dictate how people should look like is not only severely stifling, it amounts to full on bullying when it descends to the level of “jokes” and “taunts” that were being directed Ali’s way.

Sensitivity and empathy is rare but there’s a popular saying that my grandmother used to say, “agar kuch acha nahi bol saktay toh behtar hai apni zabaan band rakhein“. Maybe that’s the mantra that everyone who feels the need to make a joke about someone’s body or face to make themselves feel better should start exercising.
