While Ali Gul Pir has tried his hand at acting, singing, directing and producing, comedy is the glue that holds his world together. Rising to instant stardom with the viral ‘Waderay Ka Beta’ in 2012, Pir went on to create many satire songs, a field not many have attempted in Pakistan. Whether it’s with ‘Kaisa Dia’, poking a finger at Amir Liaqat or ‘Modi Teri’ taking a punch at the Prime Minister of India, Pir has proven time and time again that there isn’t any person or topic he won’t make fun of.
