Shehzad Roy calls on Imran Khan to discuss educational reforms
ISLAMABAD - Renowned singer Shehzad Roy met with Pakistan's incoming prime minister Imran Khan at Bani Gala on Friday.

The 41-year-old musician took to Twitter to share that he discussed educational reforms with the PTI chairman.

“Just met Khan Sahab, Prime Minister elect. While discussing other things , we discussed education reforms. He said “it’s about time”. I have a reason to believe that change is on the horizon,” Roy's tweet reads.

Roy, who is an active social worker and humanitarian, had previously been affiliated with the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf as well by performing at numerous of PTI’s political gatherings and voicing out support for the premier elect at multiple times in the past.

He is also the president and founder of Zindagi Trust, a non-government charitable organisation, that strives to improve the quality of education available to the average Pakistani.

Roy has recently produced and hosted 2 documentary series, Chal Parha, about the state of public education in Pakistan, and Wasu aur Mein, which follows the travels of Shehzad and a villager and deals with issues like progress, poverty and patriotism in Pakistan.

He received Tamgha-i-Imtiaz in 2005, Sitara-i-Eisaar in 2006 and Sitara-i-Imtiaz in 2018. He was also selected to be a torch bearer for the 2008 Olympics.
