Karachi: The final of Pakistan Super League (PSL) is in full swing as players and spectators make their way to Karachi’s National Stadium.
With cricket coming back to the country after nearly a decade, people from all walks of life will be heading to witness the recreation of history.
Of course, our local celebrities will be there to cheer for their favourites as well. Here are some of the celebrities we might bump into at tonight’s final.
1. Mahira Khan
Being a Peshawar Zalmi brand ambassador and a Karachiite, Mahira is one obvious celebrity who would be present at the stadium tonight. After all, her team will be playing the final.
2. Hamza Ali Abbasi
Much like Mahira, Hamza is a brand ambassador to Peshawar Zalmi as well. Being a supporter since 2016, Hamza is also bound to make it to the bleachers – or well, the VVIP seating.
3. Humayun Saeed
Punjab Nahi Jaungi actor, who has been very supportive of Karachi Kings is also expected to be at the stadium tonight.
4. Fawad Khan
While the handsome hunk as been away from the limelight for quite a while, or been busy shooting for Maula Jatt 2, he might be seen in the Islamabad United box cheering for the team.
According to reports circulating on social media, Meera has also shown her interest in attending the final to be held tonight.
6. Aamina Sheikh, Adnan Malik and Sanam Saeed
Cake’s roaring promotions have been making waves globally. The cast was in UK earlier for international premiers and have now made their way back to Pakistan. Who knows they might just be promoting Cakeahead of its release at PSL tonight.
7. Urwa and Mawra Hocane
Since Farhan Saeed, Urwa’s other half, will be performing at the final tonight, it only makes sense for her to be there as well. Considering the closeness between the sisters, Mawra might just be there too.
8. Bilal Ashraf
The Janaan actor has been following the PSL matches very religiously as well. He might be seen sweeping girls off their feet at the stadium tonight.
Peshawar Zalmi are facing Islamabad United for the PSL 3 finale and one can expect a lot more celebrities making their way to the venue as it’s being held in the city of lights, Karachi. Pakistan is a cricket loving nation after all.
However, the inclusion of some of the biggest Pakistani musicians performing tonight is sure to make it up for their absence.
Wow! Karachi see you on the closing ceremony! https://t.co/4ywxjEWLa9

Ali Zafar has been a part of PSL since its inception. Releasing a new anthem every year, Zafar managed to make sure that every Pakistani – and some global fans – hum to his tunes.
At the final match that is to be held between Peshawar Zalmi and Islamabad United tonight, Zafar will once again keep his promise and set the stage on fire with his performance. *cue crowd chanting to Dil Se Jaan Laga De*
Next up: Shehzad Roy – the ageless singer – will be taking it up a notch. Much like Zafar, the Sitara-e-Imtiaz recipient has also been a part of PSL since last year producing songs for Karachi Kings.
So it comes as no surprise that he would be present at the closing ceremony taking place tonight.
National Stadium will also be host to Farhan Saeed and Aima Baig tonight. With special performances lined up, the two will aid uplifting fans’ spirits and make for an unforgettable cricketing experience.
The evergreen Strings has been a part of Pakistani cricket for long as one can remember. From creating anthems for the team during world cup matches, Strings songs are still remembered to this day.
The dynamic duo of Faisal Kapadia and Bilal Maqsood who celebrate three decades of creating music this year, will be seen lighting up the stage tonight to close PSL 2018.
Who wouldn’t want to be a part of recreating history with this foot-tapping artist line up. After all, Hai Koi Hum Jesa?
