Since the hype around PSL is all that Pakistanis are talking about these days, we know for a fact that the fans were eagerly anticipating the release of this year’s anthem which is sung by Fawad Khan. It was unfortunately leaked online before its official release. But oh well..
Fast forward to the present, where the song has now been released officially.
Previously, we discussed that the song is called ‘Khel Diwano Ka’ and is sung by Fawad Khan. It’s been composed by Shuja Haider. If you haven’t heard it yet, here you go:
Now, for the past few years, Ali Zafar has been singing the official anthem. And even though it’s great that he’s been replaced, it seems like people aren’t happy with who he’s been replaced with.
In fact, Fawad Khan has now been trending in Pakistan.
What’s worse is that he’s trending for all the wrong reasons. People are trolling the song…and him, unfortunately. Yikes.
Some people are making the same jokes.

People are also discussing how good looks have deceived us time and again.

Others want Meera Jee to take center-stage.
Dear @OfficialPSL Fawad khan se acha tu Meera ga leti he

And some want Taher Shah.
So many good singers in Pakistan and PCB decided to pick Fawad khan. Tahir Shah could have sung it better than this.#psl4anthem

Okay this looks like some serious level of disappointment.

People are like, “Bhai aap se nahi hoga”

It’s kinda clear how people feel, really.

However, some love the guy too much to hate on him.
Fawad khan can punch me in the face and I’d say thank you pic.twitter.com/UfrG3cmQ4x

Hmmm….to kya Fawad Khan ko her cheez main dalna zaroori hai? Koi movie ho, song ho, reality tv….
Give others a chance too…
— Fatima Hassan (@Fatima_Hassan17) January 18, 2019
And some said Fawad isn’t the one to blame.
if psl song is the worst , its the fault of lyrics writer and the music director
can't blame fawad khan for this
— kamran (@komo_kazi) January 18, 2019
Fawad Khan is not bad in the #PSL4Anthem lyrics are!
Stop hating on him ppl
— Arpita Joshi (@Arpita_joshi13) January 19, 2019
In fact, some people are defending him too.
I don't understand why people is too Harsh with #PSL4Anthem . It is good and fawad khan did good job. You must have known that he started his career as singer (band). So please grown up and let past be a past move ahead. Appreciate the effort instead of trolling.#KhelDeewanoKa
— Kuمail Abbas (@imkabbas) January 19, 2019
And some sensible people are stepping up.
People would rather listen to #PSL4Anthem sang by a creeper and molester Ali Zafar than a decent human being and fairly decent voice of Fawad Khan. Grow up haters
— AB (@AabdulR) January 18, 2019
On a side not, fawad khan sung a shit song but that doesn't mean u need to suck ali harasszafar he ain't the only singer we have thank you for coming to my ted talk#PSL4Anthem
— Anas Tipu (@teepusahab) January 18, 2019
His good looks were then declared the sole reason behind his success by some.
Fawad Khan is classy example of how good looks can win you world!
I know he’s a very talented actor but it’s his looks that makes him get things easily, nawaz ud din jaise shakal ho tu adhi zindagi tu struggle main guzar jati hai
— Ayeshay (@champagne_lassi) January 18, 2019
FAWAD KHAN IS SO OVERRATED, we Pakis adore everything that he do just because he's good looking.
— Ahmed (@AhmedDamn) January 18, 2019
But then the real fans who’ve followed Fawad since EP stepped in.
People who think Fawad Khan can't sing, haven't heard of EP in their entire life. They think FK got #PSL4Anthem bc of good looks.
I know it's bad but the lyrics are bad not the singers. FK was successful singer way before he started his acting career. #PSL4 #KhelDeewanoKa
— ARSALAN (@_ArsalanAli) January 18, 2019
Some people actually liked it.
"Fawad Khan"my all time favorites fawad khan just in one hour i played the PSL 4 anthem 10 time
