Most entertaining on Instagram, use of humor on social media, best youtuber and best TikTok, Best vlogger? All seem to be same thing. There should be a single award. Why this illogical categorization?
Pak abroad Sep 08, 2021 11:19pm
It should be PESA or better still Rupia awards .. throw in small charter jet, apple juice and free hotel ... all the honey bees will flock! If it gave any economical legs to pak film industry then hold the event in Lahore, Thata or karachi or mirpurkhas ... but no run to Dubai ... what next ... thori pak ki help ker!
