Vlogger Shahveer Jafry responds to backlash regarding classist sign at wedding venue

A sign outside Jafry’s Valima venue prohibited the entry of guards and drivers


Entertainment Desk October 28, 2021

Vlogger Shahveer Jafry, who recently tied the knot in a grand ceremony, came under fire on social media after a picture from the event started doing the rounds which showed a sign prohibiting the entry of drivers and guards inside the venue. Jafry recently took to Instagram to respond to accusations of elitism and classist behaviour at the wedding. 

Commenting on a post, the vlogger wrote, “I rented out the Garrison Gold Club for my Valima. I had absolutely nothing to do with this sign and do not support this message.” He continued, “I think it’s disgusting. In fact, my guard and my house workers were invited to the event.” 

Adding that he would have taken action had he noticed the problematic sign, Jafry asserted, “I never noticed the sign. Had it come to my attention, I would’ve had it removed.” 

 

Jafry recently tied the knot with fashion designer Ayesha Beig in an extravagant ceremony attended by several members of the YouTube community including influencers Sham Idrees and Zaid Ali.

Shahveer sported a sequined black sherwani for the occasion, accessorising with an embellished shawl, which matched with the bride’s traditional red and gold ensemble. The event was also attended by actor Zoya Nasir, who stunned in a blue and pink Lajwanti outfit. 

The couple’s engagement in December last year was also attended by the YouTube community, with Zoya, Zaid and Sham being guest list mainstays throughout the wedding events.
