As understood, Imran Khan was preparing for a speech, when he talked about some of the interviews and their visual output. Mentioning his interview with Pakistani actor Shaan Shahid on HUM News, Imran Khan expressed his opinion that he did not like the lighting of the interview.

The former Prime Minister urged technicians to check everything and give it a “professional look”. “Shaan’s was very bad. The photography was bad,” he said.

“You see, the lighting is everything. If the lighting is not good…” Imran Khan said as he was interrupted by a question from a team member. Then he says, “So where do I start” as he visibly prepares for his speech.

Netizens found the “lighting is everything” comment hilarious.

Some have said, “We learned from Will Durant, ‘…but perspective is everything.’ However, they’ve now told us, ‘Lighting is everything.’

One netizen took a rather sarcastic route and ‘googled’ Khan’s statement only to get a photography lesson.

Some netizens even kicked off the classic debate about editing skin color in fashion photographs to make them “fairer,” again with the caption “lighting is everything.”

Well maybe ‘Shaan’ wasn’t aware of the importance of lighting in Well, Everything!

Meanwhile, the interview he referred to, which was reportedly in poor lighting, was an hour-long interview with the former prime minister that aired on HUM news on May 4. In the interview, Imran Khan talked about politics, opposition, family, children, wife Bushra Bibi etc.
