Shafaat’s Spot-On Mimicry of PM Shehbaz Sparks Laughter

Mimicry

During an event in Islamabad honoring the national hockey team for reaching the 2024 Sultan Azlan Shah Cup final, stand-up comedian Syed Shafaat Ali entertained the audience with his mimicry of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif.

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, addressing the event, congratulated the hockey team for their impressive performance on the international stage. “I would like to congratulate the Pakistan hockey team for making the nation proud at the international level.

Pakistan hockey was on a decline, but now we can see that the good days of Pakistan are returning due to your hard work,” he remarked.

After his speech, the prime minister humorously recalled a previous encounter with Shafaat Ali, saying that the comedian had once inflicted an “injury” on him with his mimicry. Upon seeing Shafaat at the event, PM Shehbaz joked that he initially felt he might be in trouble again.

Syed Shafaat Ali, renowned for his spot-on impressions of politicians, was then invited to the stage by the prime minister himself to share a joke or perform a mimicry set.

Shafaat admitted it was daunting to mimic the premier live in his presence, but PM Shehbaz encouraged him, saying he could repeat a joke he had previously made about him.

Taking the stage, Shafaat captivated the audience with his talent, perfectly mimicking Shehbaz’s voice and gestures.

In the prime minister’s voice, he humorously addressed Chairman Prime Minister Youth Program Rana Mashhood, joking that if the hockey players were not appointed to various public departments within a week, he would have a meeting with Rana on another topic, as he would avoid discussing sports with him again. The hall erupted in laughter at this performance.

In his official capacity, PM Shehbaz also directed authorities to induct the hockey players into government institutions.

Additionally, he spoke about holding discussions with officials from the Pakistan Hockey Federation (PHF) to further revive the sport in the country.

To recognize the team’s achievements, cheques worth Rs1 million each were distributed among the hockey players.

The Sultan Azlan Shah Cup had been a significant event for Pakistan, marking the first time in 13 years that the national team had qualified for the final, bringing renewed hope and excitement to hockey fans across the nation.
