As is being 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 the technicians to check everything and make him “look professional". "Shaan's one was very bad. The photography was bad," he said.

"See, lighting is everything. If the lighting is not right..." Imran Khan said as he was interrupted by a question from a member of the team. Then he says, "So, where should I start' visibly preparing for his speech.

Netizens have found the ‘lighting is everything’ comment hilarious.

Some said," We learnt from Will Durant, ".... but perspective is everything". However, they told us now, "lighting is everything".

One netizen took a rather sarcastic route and ‘Googled’ Khan's statement only to get lessoned on photography.

Some netizens even brought in the classic debate of editing skin colour on fashion photographs to made them look ‘fairer’ , again with the ‘lighting is everything caption’

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

Meanwhile, the interview that he referred to, the lighting of which was apparently bad, was a one-hour interview of the former prime minister telecast on HUM news on May 4. In the interview, Imran Khan talked about politics, opposition, family, children, wife Bushra Bibi etc.
