The Government Allegedly Banned Shafaat Ali's Ad Impersonating Imran Khan And He Is Speaking Out On It

By Rameeza Ahmad | 19 Oct, 2018

Shafaat Ali happens to be a very popular television personality and impersonator.


In his latest project, he donned the roles of Imran Khan and Amir Liaquat for a television advertisement for an online shopping company. The ad was fairly innocent, as Shafaat delivered a message as Imran Khan about saving money by shopping on the website.

But apparently, some people took a lot of offence to the advertisement, particularly some people in the Senate. According to the news Shafaat received, Senators Rehman Malik and Khushbakht Shujaat asked for such ads to be banned and that PEMRA should ban such ads even before they are even aired.

However, offices for both of the Senators nor PEMRA has issued an official statement regarding the entire issue. And some people even think that the ad was not taken off the air because they could still see them.

A lot of people were actually happy that the ad was being banned because they found it disrespectful.

But Shafaat has mentioned that the advertisement had till 12 AM-midnight to be taken off the air. So let’s see if PEMRA actually takes action and bans the ad.

Let’s see if the advertisement is taken off the air after tonight because that is apparently the deadline. And if so, it might be a debate about the freedom of media. But you can still watch the ad online on YouTube and we have linked it below so you can see and decide for yourself whether it was offensive or not.

What do you think about this ad? Let us know in the comments below!
