Season 4 of the Pakistan Super League Twenty20 competition got off to a glittering start in Dubai on Thursday night.
The Dubai International Cricket Stadium was flooded sound and light as those in attendance were entertained by a glitzy opening ceremony before game action began between reigning champions Islamabad United and Lahore Qalandars close to 10 pm.
Junoon partook in the opening of the night including Aima Baig, Shuja Haider and solo performance of Fawad Khan.
However, recently the renowned journalist Gharida Farooqi tweeted how she doesn’t find Junoon anything impressive and how the band has been using their old songs to impress the audience. She took Twitter to express her views and mentioned, «Junoon is so overrated. Flop performance. Who made them perform btw? Singing 20+years old songs…Repetition is so boring. Haven’t we produced good singers/songs during the period to present at an Intl stage at such an event?

Right after she tweeted this, there was a flood of response from various people and this is how it went like!
This user stated that Gharida wrote the tweet out of jealousy and she’s no up to no good. Oh well!
Guys! She’s just allergic to Junoon whether it’s in music or politics. That’s it. ???

This user questioned if she herself has done anything besides journalism and she should quit criticizing.
Have you ever done something else then journalism ? It’s always easy to criticize

Junoon has no doubt blessed this nation with some amazing songs! From Sayonee to Jazba-e-Junoon – Ali Azmat, Salman Ahmad, Brian O’Connell, Nusrat Hussain have really been an essential part of all of our lives! So, what do you guys think of these views that Gharida Farooqi expressed?
No doubt we have good singers but Junoon is love! Share your thoughts with us below as well.
