Having been the show's host for its first four seasons, he is one of the most recognized names in the Afghani media.

A British documentary film about 'Afghan Star' has won two awards at the Sundance Film Festival in the U.S..

The talent show and documentary have turned Mr Sediqi into an overnight celebrity. But his new-found fame has also brought him numerous death threats.

The Taliban and its followers do not agree with the cultural values of the show - which sees women dancing and singing, and promotes popular culture and democracy.

Since traveling to the U.S. to promote the documentary, Sediqi has chosen not to return to Afghanistan, and rumors suggest that he is attempting to apply for asylum in the U.S.
