Geo bags Rs 270 million against Amir Liaquat Hussain’s Ramazan program
By Iram Salim
Islamabad July 21 (http://www.pakdestiny.com) Commercial companies have given Rs270 million business to Geo for only month of Ramazan programme of one of the most controversial anchors Amir Liaquat Hussain, so is it a bad deal Geo has made?
And against it Aamir Liaquat Hussain signed a contract against Rs2.5 million per month salary.
Pakdestiny received mixed response on its earlier write-up that ‘a common female friend of Mir Ibrahim Rahman (MIR) and Aamir Liaquat Hussain has facilitated the return of the latter to the former’s organization’.
The Geo group however said: “The commercial aspect is the main reason forcing it to have Amir Liaquat Hussain back.”
“The whopping business of Rs270million his Ramazan programme got is a clear example how much following this man has. So we should accept the reality,” an official of the group told Pakdestiny. He said all TV channels were only interested in making money. “The news channels will welcome any notorious anchor or actor or actress provided he or she gets business for them,” he said explaining the market philosophy of hiring people.
Earlier, Amir Liaquat Hussain, was booted out by Geo after overtly targeting Ahmadi community and his differences with the management.
Geo had also tried to show his real face to the people by releasing his ‘controversial video’ in which he used abusive language in off-air talk after he joined ARY. – http://www.pakdestiny.com
