Meanwhile, Anoushay Ashraf, VJ and prominent celebrity was of the opinion that, “It is wonderful that Zong has taken the lead to introduce an endorsement as huge as the Fast and Furious franchise in Pakistan. Endorsements such as these have become the norm worldwide, and so there is no reason why such should not be the case in Pakistan as well.”
