Navjot Singh Sidhu was popular in Comedy Nights with Kapil for using poetry to praise the guests of the show. The man used the same style to praise Imran Khan. It was the message of peace, love, and good wishes for the new government that won him hearts of Pakistanis. Further, it was speaking Punjabi during his media press conference that let people recognize how much they were similar to each other and how much it was necessary to get away with hatred. Sidhu’s visit to Pakistan on such a momentous occasion will indeed help to bring both countries closer. And, it may also open the doors for collaboration in the field of arts, science, literature, and sports, increasing the chances of peace between two neighboring countries who have a history of conflict with each other.
