She's here for Kaavan's transfer to Cambodia
American singer Cher met Prime Minister Imran Khan in Islamabad on Friday, his office shared on Twitter.
PM Khan appreciated Cher's efforts in helping Kaavan retire to an elephant sanctuary and thanked her.
Singer, actress and television personality, Cher was once referred to by the media as the "Goddess of Pop". She is said to be an embodiment of female autonomy in a male-dominated industry.
The plight of Kaavan, an overweight, 35-year-old Asiatic elephant, had drawn international condemnation and highlighted the woeful state of the Islamabad zoo, where conditions are so bad that a judge ordered all the animals to be moved.
