Adnan Siddiqui Terms Aamir Liaquat’s Joke About Irrfan Khan’s Death Callous
Aamir Liaquat is once again being called out for his inappropriate sense of humour. Adnan Siddiqui, who was called in Aamir Liaquat’s Ramzan show, has posted on Instagram how making death jokes about Sri Devi and Irrfan, soon after their demise was hitting a new low, even for Aamir Liaquat.

On his show, Jeevay Pakistan, Aamir Liaquat had jokingly said that everyone who Siddiqui worked with, outside of Pakistan, had ended up dying too soon. He said, “you have saved Rani Mukherjee by not working with her,” while he burst out into laughter.
Adnan seemed visibly uncomfortable in this insensitivity, and he said, ‘This is not a matter to be joked about’, and he continued to keep his calm. But later, on his Instagram, he posted an apology to the family of the deceased and said that this was extremely insensitive and he cannot even call it ‘hitting below the belt’.
“It was an extremely callous act to joke about the deceased. This is in very bad taste, not only does it show him and me but also the entire country in bad light.”
“I want to apologise to the families of Sridevi Sahiba and lrrfan Khan Sahab, their loved ones and fans. If you see my body language I was extremely uncomfortable with what he said but I didn’t want to stoop to that level,” he added.
He ended his note saying, “I regret being on the show. I’ve learnt my lesson and I promise I will not tolerate such an act in future. I was hoping this bit wouldn’t become public but unfortunately it has. I’m sorry.”
Meanwhile, Aamir Liaquat also proceeded to post a video apology on Twitter:
I am sorry
