Sajal Aly, Adnan Siddiqui engage in a face-off over LSA ‘improvised’ national anthem

Sajal Aly, Adnan Siddiqui engage in a face-off over LSA ‘improvised’ national anthem.

It was the other day when senior actor turned producer Adnan criticized improvised national anthem at a Lux Style Awards event and termed it disrespectful.

The anthem, which Roy produced to mark the 75th anniversary of Pakistan’s creation, features the lyrics as the original,  however, some of the more modern instruments used to create the melody were replaced with traditional ones.


Actor Sajal Aly was swift to respond to Adana Siddiqui’s criticism and defended Shehzad Roy and Wahab Bugti, she commented that both broke no law.

She said: “As a Pakistani and an artist, I found the diversity of my country reflected in this rendition of the national anthem beautiful. I found it healing. Shehzad Roy and Wahab Bugti broke no law. They breached no protocol. Their rendition reflected the values of our Constitution and remained true to the original anthem.”

You asked for thoughts. These are mine. Feel free to disagree :)


Adnan Siddiqui took to Instagram stories to respond to Sajal’s remarks.

Merey Paas Tum Ho actor stated that he was not ‘throwing shade on the “ethnicity” of the artists involved or on anyone’s patriotism’.

In one of the stories, Adnan tagged Sajal and reminded her how “there is protocol to be followed for national symbols, respect accorded to them much so that the first alphabets of national symbols are written in upper case.”

“What is next because we are creative and should celebrate diversity? Hoist the National Flag upside down and design our own version of the emblem?” he added.
