Hugely disappointed with Adnan Siddiqui. Meeting an absconder to promote his new film. Shows being half educated means nothing. #ImportedGovernment #NawazSharif #AdnanSiddiqui https://t.co/p7PmGlVr3y

The actor is now receiving mixed comments on social media from netizens. Former pm Nawaz Sharif is convicted and has been in self-exile in the UK for health reasons allegedly.
People believe that Adnan Siddiqui should not have met Nawaz Sharif since it might damage the promotional activities of the movie in the UK. It is interesting to note that the Pakistani community has been protesting in huge numbers in the UK against the Sharif family since the ouster of Imran Khan from the PM Office.
