Afterwards, some words were thrown by Fawad Chaudhary, which quickly escalated into a slapping incident. Consequently, Fawad Chaudhary slapped the anchorperson on the spot.
The people on the scene, who intervened quickly, later handled the situation and were able to cool the whole situation down. Both, Fawad Chaudhary and Mubashir Lucman left the wedding immediately after the incident.
Later, the Minister took to Twitter to confirm the news by a media outlet. He tweeted about the Mubashir Lucman and questioned his credentials.
“People like Mubashir Lucman have nothing to do with journalism… they are [sexual slur] who have barged into journalism. It is everyone’s duty to expose [such people],” tweeted Fawad Chaudhary.
The whole saga was started over Hareem Shah, the Tik Tok girl who earlier made videos on the private jet of Mubashir Lucman. The anchor person accused Fayyaz ul Hassan Chohan and later levelled allegations against Fawad Chaudhary linking his involvement with Hareem Shah.
