Two weeks after Deepak Perwani was said to have joined MQM and caused an uproar in the fashion industry in Pakistan, a press statement has been issued by the high end fashion designer himself, clearing the air about his association with MQM or any political party in that regard.
"As a citizen of Karachi, I recognize the importance and relevance of the political landscape and the very vital contribution of the MQM.. During my 25 years of career as a fashion designer I have been apolitical and Karachi has been central to my growth sustenance and pride. I have great respect and regard for Dr. Farooq Sattar. I would like to make it very clear that I have not formally joined any party but will always support causes and charities that will benefit my city and my country. I thank Dr. Sattar and wish him and the party every success," shared Deepak Perwani.
After having sat in a press conference with the party leaders, Deepak's statement now comes as another surprise for the fashion and entertainment industry of Pakistan. Speculations about what might have brought about this change are doing rounds amongst the masses, but no authentic news has been received as yet.
