Though the live event was marred with many failed performances, and there were many complaints that the show was lip-synced and poorly delivered.
Indian planner named Shubhra Bhardwaj was paid a fortune by PCB for the opening ceremony of PSL5 and an army of workers hired by the planner were also revealed to be Indian’s and that has irked the Pakistani more than ever.
