Social media is swarmed with dance videos of people undertaking Ali Zafar’s challenge to follow his dance steps in the tutorial shared on his Twitter account.
A large number of people including school, college students, children, and adults are showing off their dance skills ever since Ali Zafar opened the challenge. This is, perhaps, the promotional activity for his new PSL 2020 anthem he produced after tremendous public demand.

Zafar said that he has prepared the new PSL 2020 anthem and is bracing up to prepare an exciting video. But before that, he wants people to express their encouragement uniquely. People are seen shaking to the drum beats in the video.
Interestingly, these are the same dance steps he will perform in the video of his new PSL 2020 anthem. In a related video shared on social media, Ali Zafar is seen shooting and rehearsing for the new PSL 2020 anthem, performing the same dance steps.

Ali Zafar produced the new PSL 2020 anthem after humongous public demand, following an unpleasant spat between him and singer Ali Azmat.
Ali Azmat alleged that Ali Zafar conspired to fail the opening ceremony in angst in his interview with Waseem Badami on ARY News program “Har Lamha Purjosh”.
When asked about his reactions to the social media backlash on the PSL 5 anthem ‘Tayyar Hain’; Ali Azmat said that a rival singer, implying Ali Zafar, had planted bloggers on social media to deride the new anthem.
Adding that these bloggers working on a paid campaign spurred a negative Twitter trend against the song, and suspects that Ali Zafar is behind them. He asserted that even Pakistan Sports Board is also aware of this alleged conspiracy.

Badami said he should name the artist otherwise the audience will assume he is talking about Ali Zafar. To which Ali Azmat said he don’t want to name the artist. He said Asim Azhar apologized because he has never confronted such a hate campaign before. He reasserted that, he thinks the hate against the song was not organic but engineered.
Ali Azmat went on to say that the dislike for the song lightened gradually and people appreciated the song. Ali Azmat said he will not name Ali Zafar because of fear of defamation cases against him.
Ali Zafar hilariously repudiated the allegations and said people unable to take criticism or failed ventures should take the responsibility instead of maligning him with baseless accusations.

Adding that he did not realize he is powerful to run paid campaigns and ruin the efforts of PCB and other artists. The singer said he is not responsible if anything goes wrong in other people’s life.
The next day, Ali Zafar appeared on the same show in which he agreed to produce a new anthem for PSL 5.
