In the midst of poor management at the opening ceremony of PSL 5 held at the Karachi National Stadium last night, some performances were also interrupted at the last minute and that also without informing the artists, which left them in a state of confusion on the stage.
The parts of Ali Azmat and Haroon Rashid in the interpretation of the tournament anthem Tayyar Hain, which also featured Asim Azhar and Arif Lohar, were cut, leaving the singers extremely angry over this act of management.
Both Azmat and Haroon mocked the behind-the-scenes management in front of the audience and some members of the audience even recorded the fight between the singers and the organizers. Later, when the situation was resolved, their phones were confiscated.
Livid Azmat also criticized the performance in a television interview immediately after.
“Merey khayal sey bohat saray jo artist hein woh naraz hee gaye hein wahan se kyunke jo wins tha, usmei Asim Azhar aur Haroon ka part chala he nai (Many artists were angry after the performance. The parts of Asim Azhar and Haroon were completely omitted.)
Azmat said management should inform artists in advance if they are cutting any performance at the last minute.
“Toh humei batayein ke short version chalanay lagay hain. Aisa laga jaisay kisi ne PC par ghalat file chaladi hai aur hum kharay huay hain aur humei kuch nai pata ke kya horaha hai! Hum doh din rehearsal kartay rahay hain. 3 1/2 minutes ke ganay ki 60 seconds file ki chali hai, (They should inform us that a short version is being played. It felt as if someone had played the wrong file on the PC and we were left without knowing what was happening. We rehearsed for two days. They played a 60- second file for a song that lasts three minutes and a half, ”said Azmat.

2020 Oscar ceremony will recognize the death of Kobe Bryant. The Los Angeles Lakers legend was one of nine people who died in a helicopter crash on Sunday, January 26. Following the tragedy, people have spent some time reflecting on Bryant’s legacy and the impact it had on the NBA. Everyone from Bryant’s famous fans and friends to NBA 2K20 The players have paid their respects, offering their tributes while mourning the lives lost in the accident.
After his retirement at the end of the 2015-16 NBA season, Bryant sought the transition to a career in the media. Perhaps his most notable achievement in that field is to win an Oscar for his animated short film, Dear basketball (based on a poem he wrote). Of course, Bryant is best known for his 20-year NBA career with the Lakers, but he certainly also left a mark in the entertainment industry. And in the next Oscars, there will be an opportunity to remember Bryant.

According to THR, the 92nd Academy Awards will recognize Bryant’s death in some way. The Oscars will be the second entertainment awards show in honor of Bryant; The Grammys, which took place at the Staples Center (where the Lakers play their home games) on Sunday, presented multiple tributes from the different artists.
What is unknown at this time is whether Bryant will only be included in the In Memoriam segment or if there is something more planned. His death affected basketball fans around the world, but possibly he hit Los Angeles (where the Oscars are held) the toughest. Bryant was an icon in the city, and in some ways he was a bigger star than the Hollywood A-listers making the films that the Oscars recognize. It would not be surprising if the Academy produced a special package, remembering what Bryant meant to Los Angeles. What happens, obviously, will be at the behest of the producers as they discover the best course of action. The Oscars are not until February 9, so they have time to discuss their options.
Since the Oscars won’t have a host for the second year in a row (which means there won’t be an opening monologue), maybe the night could start with a tribute to Bryant before the first prizes are awarded. Even if there is nothing bigger planned, it would be appropriate to make Bryant a part of In Memoriam, considering his connection to the Academy. He is the first professional athlete to be nominated and win a Oscar, so he made history at the ceremony just a couple of years ago.
