Video leak: Lucman, Bokhari run 'planted show' with Malik Riaz

Published: June 14, 2012

"It will appear as though it is plante­d… it is, but it should­n’t appear it is” says Meher Bokhar­i.

What do you get when you leave the camera on with two TV anchors and a business tycoon during an advertisement break? A candid video of what went on behind the scenes during what is termed a “planted show” on one of the biggest scandals in Pakistan’s history.

Behind the scenes footage showing Dunya News anchors Mubashir Lucman and Meher Bokhari talking to Malik Riaz during their show surfaced on YouTube under the title “Malik Riaz Planted Interview with Mehar Bokhari and Mubashir Lukman on dunya tv“ on Thursday. The show aired on the TV channel on Wednesday.

The footage shows conversations between Lucman, Bokhari and Riaz focused on the kind of questions they will be asking. Both anchors are also instructed against interrupting Riaz during the interview.

Bokhari is heard saying a question is planted towards the end of the video.

“Say what you want… what question should we ask. It will appear as though it is planted… it is, but it shouldn’t appear it is.”

The video begins with general conversation and is followed by Riaz questioning the anchors on why they are not asking why he is part of “deals”.

Lucman is then seen on the phone asking if the interview is going fine and defending himself by saying Riaz is being given a chance.

Who is he speaking to? Abdul Qadir Gilani, he says.

The anchor tells “Gilani” that he wants to clear his name from taking money and he wants to talk about Hamid Mir’s allegations, but Riaz isn’t letting him take his name. “No, no,” says the business tycoon in response to that.

Riaz then asks “Gilani” to pray for him.

In between Lucman’s smoke break, Bokhari turns to Riaz to discuss what they will ask next. A brief discussion and a “khul kay poochain”, Meher says that they will discuss journalists at the end of the show, so as to “clear her name” at least.

Lucman tells Riaz, “Today I will ask you to give me in front of everyone. Give me a villa like you gave Hamid”. “No, no,” is Riaz’s response once again, followed by a “why not” from Lucman.

Yet another break later, both anchors and Riaz are once again seen talking about what the next discussion will be.

Riaz once again mentions that he wants them to ask why he is in every deal, and is told by Bokhari that she is not interested in asking that question, but is in return told that he wants to go back to it. “So go back,” says Lucman.

Riaz is seen occasionally choosing topics of his choice, focusing on the chief justice as well. He is also visibly upset during one part of the video, where he says that most of his questions are left and the work isn’t done.

Smoke breaks, thumbs up from both anchors, a high five and questions of how the show is going so far are also seen during the video.

Little arguments between both anchors are also regularly seen during the video, mostly on order of asking questions and the time each has to take.

Lucman also tells Riaz that he will ask a “conspiracy theory” question that he wanted to become the prime minister.

He tells Riaz that he will not answer the question before 10, as this will make people wait for it otherwise they won’t come back to the show.

In another interesting revelation, Riaz states that he does not eat roti, chawal or meetha, and will eat an egg or chicken. Lucman asks Bokhari to get barbecue instead.

Riaz is not to be interrupted

The second part of the video has strict instructions coming in for both Lucman and Bokhari that Riaz is not to be interrupted.

Both anchors give their assurance that they will not be interrupting the businessman now. Lucman also tells someone off camera that they should not be pressurising them for a break, and says that they will go over time if they have to.

Lucman then asks Riaz to give him a “dhamaka”, and is promised that he will get one on the next show.

Bokhari also delivers a message from Maryam Nawaz that a car had been offered to them but they had declined it after saying thank you.

During this talk, a muffled off screen voice says something and Riaz tells the female to stay quiet.

The second part also sees both anchors getting into a little tiff over camera time. Bokhari calls Lucman childish, who takes his mic off and leaves.

Riaz appears desperate when Lucman walks off, asking him to come back, saying it will be unfair for him.

An angry Lucman returns and tells Riaz that he will say live on air that he was pressurised into doing the show by him and Mian Amir.

Riaz continues trying to reconcile between the two during all of this.

He then begs both anchors and says that the program will be spoilt and that his life is at stake. Lucman then tells Riaz that he will say that he had gone to meet the man who also had documents to show against Dr Arsalan Iftikhar.

A video close to 26 minutes will now just add to the only dangerously brewing storm that has a member of the judiciary linked to it.

    Even if the video is meaningful, the Malik Riaz’s three questions and his

Barrister Aitzaz Ahsan has also confirmed that he had informed the Chief Justice a few months ago, but he took the suo moto action only after the news had broken on the media. Unfortunately, Malik Riaz ‘s shady dealings and reckless undertakings are not helping Arsalan Iftikhar or the Chief Justice. I pray the Chief Justice come out clean on merit.

The question however still remains as to who is the beneficiary Executive, Parliament or Judiciary? Both the major political parties seem to have a figure in the Pie? So is it PPP, Nawas League or Malik Riaz? You can count out Riaz Malik because he is already in hot waters having said that nothing in Pakistan moves unless Golden or Silver wheels are put under it. Is it not universal Truth? But over corrupt society judges from moral high ground, if the matter pertains to someone else or makes an opinion on presumptions or hears ay. Why can we not face reality? If Executive can be corrupt, why not Parliament or Judiciary? Why should we form opinion on perceptions? Recommend

    Never really liked or trusted Mubashar Lucman. Everyone who is anyone in Pakistan seems to have their fingers in the pie.

    Majority of media manipulate the news. They dont report rather they bend the facts

    @AAli: lolz so true!
    “Lucman then asks Riaz to give him a “dhamaka”, and is promised that he will get one on the next show.”
    Smoke breaks, thumbs up from both anchors, a high five and questions of how the show is going so far are also seen during the video.
    etheics, shmethics! order a “tikka”

    apparently veena malik and maya khan look like saints as the big guns are pulled. media brawls among each other, govt sits back and orders popcorn.

    Today I will ask you to give me in front of everyone. Give me a villa like you gave Hamid”. “No, no,” is Riaz’s response once again, followed by a “why not” from Lucman.

    “fermasihi program” works on duniya, BUT my comment will surely be be “under moderation”

    sincerly,

    You tube is removing the video`s claiming Copy Right issues. The scum bags have just started the clearing operations by removing everything from social media. I think people should start downloading it and uploading time and again on facebook, youtube and and other websites..

    Dear All,

    Hats off to the person who exposed all this. It means that media owners and anchors all are making fool of Pakistani nation. They are playing only for their interests i.e. Money and will never bother for the country’s integrity. They are the people those deserve our hatered and such persons should be punished severly those are involved in the character assasination of the chief justice. Further, shame on Luqman and Mehar Bukhari.. Shame on these two …. Recommend

    A casual informal talk in good humor should not have been used to put muck on these great daring journalists. Sad that competing but failed media guys third raters are trying to capitalize on. Both are good journalists and nothing should stick of competing channels. News One must be charged for mal practices. They pay money to small technicians to make a video like this and then put it on air. Shame on News One. I will not accuse these two great anchors of any wrong doing.

    It is not the messenger but the saboteur. Unable to compete this was a cheap way of shaking a channel and the two outspoken journalists. Both are the darling of the audience. I dont agree with them most of the time but does not mean to put muck on them this way. Shame on NewsOne. It was framing. It was unethical it was off the record. When Zulfiqar Ali Bhuttos profanity went on air accidentally did he not say cut it, off the record. Off the record cannot become part of the record.
