Iflix has made its way into Pakistan. An official ceremony was held in Karachi last weekend to celebrate the firm’s expansion and partnership with PTCL in Pakistan.

Not only did the Khumariyaan boys deliver a high voltage performance, where they performed their LSA nominated
song ‘Tamasha’, they also taught traditional pakhtun dance moves to the audience.

The evening was celebrated with the help of many musical acts like the All Girls Band and Indian sensation Stereo Nation but it was the boys from Peshawar who stole the limelight.

Iflix has made its way into Pakistan. An official ceremony was held in Karachi last weekend to celebrate the firm’s expansion and partnership with PTCL in Pakistan. It brought together much of Pakistan’s entertainment industry: Junaid Khan, Momal Sheikh and Anoushey Ashraf amongst others could be seen at the event.

The stage also saw some entertaining acts. The show started off with the All Girls Band who performed a slow paced original track before moving on to their rendition of The Weeknd’s ‘Starboy’. The up and coming mind reader Shaheer Khan also performed for the audience and had some dazzling tricks up his sleeve. Stereo Nation was flown in all the way from India. They upped the energy of the evening by performing their most famous track ‘Nachenge Sari Raat’ to a very excited audience.

However, it was Khumariyaan’s performance that really elevated everyone’s mood. The band always makes it a point to represent their city Peshawar as much as possible and that’s what they did during their act. Not only did the boys deliver a high voltage performance, where they performed their LSA nominated song ‘Tamasha’, they also taught traditional pakhtun dance moves to the audience.

As soon as the band got off stage, one of the hosts of the evening, Ushna Shah made a strange and completely irrelevant comment.

“Can I just say, I’m so glad that we got KPK after partition,” she said before she started clapping for the band. It was a strange choice of words from the actress and we couldn’t figure out why she would use them to applaud the band. However, Khalid Malik, the other host of the evening, did a much better job of keeping the show together.
