The former model-turned-singer, who was granted bail in a money laundering case last month, was invited to Karachi University (KU) as an honorary guest at the inauguration of a charitable business venture by students of its Department of Public Administration.

The business venture, named ChipsNDip, is a French fries eatery that would donate part of its profits to differently abled people, revealed Ayyan in a Facebook post.

She swooshed in all VIP-like...

...and some celebratory snow foam spraying too:

Ayyan describes the experience as an "honor", but Twitter can't help but wonder why it was afforded to her in the first place.

Some genuinely wondered about the rationale behind the university's invitation:
