The announcement, made in Urdu on a microblogging platform, fueled speculation about his motivations and intended political affiliation. Further confirming his seriousness, Qamar expressed his desire to run under the banner of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party, adding a strategic dimension to his move.

Engaging with his audience, Qamar expressed gratitude for their support and outlined critical hindrances to national progress, including sectarianism, nepotism, expensive English-medium schools, and political animosity. These concerns, he suggests, will form the cornerstone of his potential political campaign.

Regardless of his ultimate course, this declaration adds intrigue to the Pakistani political landscape, leaving observers curious about the possible impact of a prominent creative figure vying for a governmental role.
