Twitter thinks Sabeeka Imam was paid to tweet in favour of Zara Shahjahan
Sabeeka Imam called out on Twitter for supporting Zara Shahjahan clothes
Pakistani Twitterati slammed model and actress Sabeeka Imam on Tuesday for tweeting in favour of designer Zara Shahjahan, alleging that the model was paid to appreciate the brand.
Sabeeka had taken to Twitter a few days ago and expressed admiration for Zara Shahjahan clothes, claiming that they did not wear out after getting washed like other brands.
“I have bought an outfit from @ZaraShahjahan and honestly the quality is of such high standard that I would rather buy 1 quality 3 piece from ZS than 3-4 other brands which get destroyed after a few washes. It is pricey but a good investment if you’re tired of disposable clothes,” she tweeted.

Pat came the response from one Twitter user who claimed that the tweet was a ‘paid one’.
Oh this is a paid tweet isn’t it? 🤣 If not, there is no way a plain stitched shirt would cost you 12K no matter what the fabric. The numbers on my tweet proves it.

I am sure you have worn Khaadi Pret. 50 washes and the fabric remains the same. I have clothes from 2011 that I still wear and they look as good as new. Range between 3k-4k. One cannot justify the insane price tags these designers put on their clothes. It only satisfies #Elitism

LOL. There’s nothing special or of high quality in their clothes. They’re just looting people. Their trouser stuff is the most ghatiya there can be. It looks worn out even when NEW. Per you have your reasons, Sabika.

This is a 2 piece @ZaraShahjahan outfit (the bottom is paired for shoot purpose only) It costs PKR 12,620 and almost 9K after discount. Who in their right mind would pay that much money for this?!?!! pic.twitter.com/heS4g76c1A

Zara Shahjahan made headlines for the wrong reasons a couple of weeks ago when she was called out on privilege for promoting classism.
