    To be correct, he’s wearing shalwar kurta. That’s not a kameez. Secondly, just because the twitterati are making an issue out of nothing, does not mean ET should repeat it without fact-checking. Specifically, who exactly criticized Sarfaraz Ahmad for not donning a suit and tie? Was it one person? Was it ten? Or does it just make a better story if we believe there are self-hating Pakistanis out there attacking him for Apparently being an “uber Pakistani”?Recommend
