The Aitchisonian later switched to Dunya News where he hosted the programme ‘Khari Baat Lucman Ke Saath’. He resigned in 2012 and joined ARY News, hosting ‘Khara Sach’, through which he exposed corruption and lies of multiple. The show was banned by PEMRA due to outspoken words that PEMRA had deemed unfit for television; however Mubasher later won the case, but resigned from ARY News as well.

Where will Mr. Lucman be headed next? that is still s secret by the renowned anchor!
But our guess is that he might be joining GNN or Aap News!
On a serious note, Samaa TV must be in a crisis as in a short span of time there all three Prime Time Anchors have left Samaa. The resignation spree started from Nadeem Malik, who was doing main 8:00 PM slot successfully. Then Shehzad Iqbal left the 10:00 pm slot and now Mubasher Lucman, a big name for 11pm slot is leaving Samaa. Some insiders says that family politics is now the main reason behind these quick resignations.
