Ali Azmat vs Umair Jaswal
There might be no such differences before Ali Azmat’s leaked video mocking Jaswal came out in which he most prominently said that with just yelling one can’t become superstar, to do this one has to compose songs and compose them continuously.
Jaswal, went on with a big smile over the video and asked his fans to pardon ‘old’ Ali Azmat over this.
But this didn’t ended here as Azmat responded with a challenge to face-off, and Jaswal rapidly responded it with saying “bring it on.”
