‘Tayyar Hain’: Asim Azhar reacts to criticism on PSL 2020 anthem

PSL 5 2020 anthem Tayyar Hain is presented by Asim Azhar, Arif Lohar, Ali Azmat and Haroon

Pakistan Super League- 2020 anthem Tayyar Hain has crossed one million views on Youtube.

The song, a collaboration of talented Pakistani singers like Ali Azmat, Asim Azhar, Haroon and Arif Lohar, was released to mixed reviews.

As it is the case with every PSL song, some people didn’t like the latest song by the top Pakistani singers.

While some people remained confined to drawing comparasion between the latest anthem with previous songs by Ali Zafar and Fawad Khan, others indulged in some below the belt criticism.

Asim Azhar on Friday took to Twitter to addresses the criticism while apologizing to anyone whom expectation he couldn’t meet and thanking everyone who has liked the song.

Below is his full statement:

“As a crazy cricket fan, I really understand the importance that cricket & PSL hold for my fellow Pakistanis. With that being said, I’m sorry to those fans, whom expectations I couldn’t meet. I know you guys wait long enough for this time of the year. But everyone tried their best, tried to do something different & out of their comfort zone, with only good intentions for the love of the country & cricket. And to those, who are enjoying it – thank you for the love. And again, I’m sorry to the ones disappointed. Trust me, being a cricket fan, I get it.

But just a couple of things I’d like to say to my fellow Pakistanis; PSL anthems are not a competition. Sure, you have all the rights to like & dislike but please understand we all do this for the same cause, for the betterment of cricket, PSL & most importantly our Pakistan. All the anthems of PSL are OUR anthems. If you don’t like a certain one unfortunately, you have others to enjoy from as well.

And also guys, please try to refrain & stick to criticism only. Making personal remarks, degrading comments or saying someone should die just for a few likes isn’t cool. Not talking about the memes, memes are fun!.”
