Here’s Why Shafqaat Ali’s TVC Impersonating Imran Khan Has Been Banned

Everybody knows Shafqaat Ali. He is a popular TV personality, stand up comedian and an impersonator.

For his latest project, Shafqaat had donned the roles of Imran Khan and Amir Liaquat for a television advertisement for an online shopping company.

Outwardly, the advertisement seemed innocent. The ad showed Shafqaat (impersonating Imran Khan) giving a message about saving money while shopping through their website.

It is being said, however, some people have taken serious offence from the ad, including some people in the Senate.

According to news being circulated, Senators Rehman Malik and Khushbakht Shujaat have asked the ads to be removed and banned entirely.

However, no official statements have been released from either the Senate or PEMRA.

As the news circulated, many people were glad that the ad has been banned as it was pretty offensive.
