@itsaadee using a bike to dodge traffic to reach a concert has to be the most karachi thing ever.— daaktar peanut butter (@wailasurgeon) December 25, 2021
There’s always that one individual who wants to make a “mehngaai” [inflation] joke.

Some folks, though, were not so forgiving. According to a Niche Lifestyle article, Aslam came at 12 am, five hours later than expected, and that this wasn’t the first time he’d done so.
People urged their online friends to cease praising celebrities for doing their jobs. Some speculated that the event was hosted rather far away, and that Aslam’s tardiness meant they would have a long journey home late at night.
This netizen contrasted the situation to someone trying to go to work on time, attempting to demonstrate that performing one’s job is the bare minimum, and that this should apply to celebrities as well as everyone else.
