He invited followers for a Q&A during social media outage
The six-hour social media blackout on Monday didn’t come without a silver lining. As disappointed Pakistanis turned away from unresponsive Instagram and Facebook, their favourite celebrity was already waiting for them on Twitter to kick off a Q&A session.
This celebrity was singer Asim Azhar, who welcomed his fans to Twitter.

Shortly after he announced an #askasim session, questions started streaming his timeline. But one can guess the kind of questions that would have come his way first, given how fans are obsessed with their favourite star’s personal life.
“Please, I asked for an #askasim [session] and not a morning show,” was Asim’s seemingly weary response to a query about when he would tie the knot.
What keeps Asim going?
Faith. In the Almighty. Not trying to be cliche here but it really works. Even in the darkest of moments when you feel nothing is going right, you just know He will make sure you’re okay. That belief & trust is a gift & it keeps me going every time i feel i cant. #askasim https://t.co/G4LEG6YR5l— Asim Azhar (@AsimAzharr) October 4, 2021
Someone asked him if he would be making a music video with Sajal Ali. Asim’s cryptic response indicates that something is brewing.
If you’re looking for a piece of advice on how to handle the fear of failure in professional life, you may find some inspiration here.
And then came the fun queries. A follower asked Asim if he ever facilitated a patch-up.
“There was a man whose wife-to-be had left him. He requested me to make a video. They are happily married today (Allah kare sahi faisla ho).” Hope the decision was right.
What would Asim like to teach his 15-year-old self?
“I would say that in the end everything would be all right. Trust and belief.”
The session ended with one of the participants turning out to be a lucky fan. A young woman told Asim that her tailor had ruined her sari and she felt like her “world was falling apart”. Asim responded by sharing a screenshot of his message to designer Asim Jofa, who had agreed to do something about her sari.
