The new song Washmallay by Aima Baig and Sahir Ali Bagga has been released, but some people have criticised it for not truly portraying Baloch culture.
Imran Raza’s song, which has lyrics in Urdu, Punjabi, and Balochi, honours Pakistan’s rich cultural diversity.
The pair are featured in captivating costumes created by renowned Pakistani designer Ali Zeeshan in the song’s music video, which highlights the pair’s chemistry.
Someone expressed their displeasure with the song’s representation of Baloch culture on Instagram, saying that the duo should know how to pronounce certain terms if they want to promote Baloch culture.
He also questioned the performers’ attire, claiming they didn’t accurately depict the significance of clothing in Baloch culture.
Apart from him, many social media users bashed Baig saying she “ruined” an iconic song.
