KARACHI – Popstar Atif Aslam had to leave stage mid-concert amid mishap and chaos during the concert in Karachi where Ali Zafar was also due to perform.
There are different reports regarding the chaos, one of them suggests that the crowd threw bottles at Atif, which prompted him to leave the stage immediately.
While other sources say, a child was lost at the venue and the father wanted to make an announcement but the bouncers wouldn’t let him, as reported by Tribune.
However, one source, who wished to retain anonymity, said, “It was all going so good. Atif came and while he was on stage, a fight started between some security guys and sound guys.” He added that no child was lost but the fight got messy and he saw three guys bleeding.

“His (Atif’s) performance was going with such a flow but then this happened,” he added. Ali Zafar was set to perform later but the incident caused the show to be called off.
The concert was hosted by Waqar Zaka and Rafay Israr opened the show. Zaka, on his Snapchat, blamed the organizers for being unable to manage arrangements.
