Politician and Senator Faisal Javed took notice of a trend that was previously started by Mikaal Zulfiqar and later on got hype when actress Naila Jaffry pointed out the need for royalties. Faisal Javed Shared a post on social media saying,” Most countries around the world give royalties /residuals to artists every time a show, their work is re-run, a 2nd time or more. However, sadly in Pak where many artists are already underpaid, there is no policy or law ensuring that artists be given financial credit for their work.”

He further said, “Therefore, it is very critical to fill the gaps & bring proper framework via amendments in legislation to ensure that our producers, artists get their rights to royalties. Am in touch with all stakeholders & iA a comprehensive bill is being brought soon to address this v imp issue.”

Pakistani Celebrities from the entertainment industry also appreciated the efforts of senator Faisal Javed to resolve the royalties issue.
