A local artist recently met Prime Minister Imran Khan and gifted him a portrait of him, which featured the National Anthem.

Sonia Nisa, a Qatar based artist met the PTI chairman in Bani Gala on Wednesday. The political party’s social media team took to Twitter to share some images from the meet up.

Sonia previously took to social media to share the same portrait and the story behind it.

“Alhamdulillah I decided to design and paint a calligraphy portrait of the Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan with the Pakistani National anthem personified within his face,” she wrote.

“This will be displayed at an Art Exhibition in Souq Waqif, Doha, Qatar. An honest, inspirational, and just leader who I sincerely admire as a role model! This project took me about eight to 10 hours to complete and I was up awake painting it until 2am on Monday so I could possibly gift it to him when he visits Qatar the next day but unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to meet him nor pass the gift onto him,” she further penned.

Sonia was then invited to the premier’s house as a guest where she gifted the portrait.
