On August 15, the Pakistani artists were granted an interim bail from Lahore court in the case relating to the controversial music video shoot of Qubool at the Wazir Khan Mosque which expired on Tuesday (August 25).

The court had issued pre-arrest bail in the case till August 25 against Rs50,000 surety bonds collectively.
