He while commenting on the anchor's(Ayesha Takia) questions, he got so defensive about his people and his country. More like he is trying really hard to change pakistan's image in front of the world. Also, I don't think Himesh Reshammiya was a good choice to be India's mentor. I think we have a lot better mentors. Especially, when we have such a kind of a show and at such a magnanimous scale.
Contrary to your opinion, I loved Atif's Attitude. I am really proud of Atif that he stood up for his country, that he is on nationwide entertainment channel representing Pakistan. I have never seen Ali Zafar or RFAK represent Pakistan. They go to india for their own commitments. Because of Atif, we might see Pakistans talent under limelight.
At some points, I do find it stupid that Sur Kshetra is trying to show rivalry between Pakistan/India with their sound effects and shiz like that. As per my opinion, Atif's attitude is scripted. Himeshs attitude is also scripted. I think I'm going to be the last person to belive that Sur Kshetra is a non-scripted show. Nowadays, every single crap on television is scripted. Even if Pakistan wins this show, my initial opinion won't change that Sur Kshetra is scripted.
I don't think any on stage noob would have the guts to respond to a captain in a rude matter (reference to latest promo).
I agree with you. Himesh shouldn't be representing India. Also I think Atif shouldn't be representing Pakistan because both of these men aren't such great/technical singers. They are just lucky that their voice, composition and music has been accepted by millions around the world but agaain, atleast they are representing their countries and that what matters.
