IT WAS GREAT TO BE SHORT AND SPECIAL IN PAREY HUT LOVE: MAHIRA KHAN

Published

on

Mahira Khan is a perfect example of beauty with brains when it comes to the showbiz world of Sub Continent. Her decade long journey has brought many successes to her that includes blockbuster dramas like Hamsafar, and box office hits films like Bin Roye and Raees. Besides producers and directors, she is the first and favourite choice of every brand as their ambassador. Moreover, Mahira’s down to earth attitude towards her fans has made her the most adorable star of her time and she being called the Queen Khan of our entertainment industry. We chatted lightly to this distinguishingly beautiful and talented woman at the wrap-up party of her upcoming Pakistani film Parey Hut Love, in which she is doing a cameo role.

Is it true that you were offered the lead role in Parey Hut Love first?

I have not spoken about it before, but yes, it is true that Asim Raza offered me this role first but I could not do the full length role at that time. I also must tell that whenever Asim would do a film, I will own it too whether I am in it or not and whatever I have been able catch from the film, believe me this role could not be performed any better by any other than Maya Ali. I have seen the rushes and she is perfect and how it is meant to be. Both Maya and Shehriyar look so nice together.

What is your role in Pare Hut Love?

I have a small and special appearance in the film. It is a role which I have never done before. For me, it is a price to pay of saying no to a full length role to Asim because whenever he offers me anything, I can’t refuse it. Moreover whatever Asim has made me in films so far, it is actually me, the Mahira Khan, but this time, my role is very different from what I am. I have really enjoyed doing it but a bit nervous at the same time. 

It is heard that you are doing a sizzling dance number in the film?

Yes! I have done a dance number in the film but it is a misconception that it is a sizzling hot number. It is very “dhaki chuppi” performance but with a great choreography.

Your fans have been waiting for so long for you and Fawad Khan come together on screen after Hamsafar. So, will they be able to see both of you share a good screen time in ‘The Legend Of Maula Jatt’ or you are planning some other project besides this?

I know that the chemistry between Fawad Khan and me works great on screen, but we also know that when and where we should come together. He was the big reason, besides Bilal Lashari and Hamza Ali Abbasi, for me to play Mukkho in ‘The Legend of Maula Jatt’, but basically, the film is not the story of me and Fawad, it is the story of Maula Jatt and Noori Natt, then came Daro and Mukkho and other characters. Our chemistry is there but to a limited extent. So, it is not the romantic film for which people are expecting from us but may be one day we will be able to work together on something like that. Let’s see when we are offered with a fitting script. 

You have been rated 4th sexiest women of World by Eastern Eye Magazine? Are you doing any hard to come on top position?

I may be 4th in the world but in Pakistan I am the 1st as there is no one from Pakistan on first three positions. By the way I feel very shy to say that because I don’t think that I am sexy at all.

“Beyond Wonder Women”- A Facebook Initiative to Promote Body Positivity

Published

on

Beyond Wonder Women is the brainchild of Minahil Kashif, a Law graduate from the University of London. She struggled with all the things that a normal Pakistani girl has to go through when it comes to the concept of a “perfect body”. Minahil used body-shaming as fuel and a reason to start Pakistan’s first fitness and motivational group that promotes the idea of women of all ages, race and ethnicity to come together and live a positive and healthy life.
The initiative “Beyond Wonder Women” aims to help our nation unlearn the concept of “perfect body” by promoting self-love, along with encouraging to be healthy and discouraging them to come down to society’s unnecessary expectations.
Beyond Wonder Women strives to provide women a safe space. Their Instagram promotes fitness and health while they work on the community’s mental health and well-being through their Facebook group in order to maintain privacy.
Amongst other wonder women is  Maryam Feroz (@25vectors) who has produced content that has helped them achieve many milestones in a short span of time which include crossing 1000+ members on their Facebook group and getting shoutouts from international trainers such as @chontelduncan and @stephaniesanzo.

A Model-Turned-Actress Still at the Peak of her Performance; Sadia Khan!

Published

on

Sadia Khan is a name that needs no introduction. The star has made sure she leaves an impression on the audiences with her charming on-screen persona and acting mettle both in the world of modeling and acting. Famed for one of the top performances of her career in Khuda Aur Mohabbat, this starlet has a lot of achievements under her name, and that isn’t all that makes her special.

Starting her career with modeling, this actor-turned-model was destined to be more than just a model. Launched in 2011 in various dramas and ramps, Sadia Khan’s personality and talent have been rather irrepressible. She’s covered countless magazines, starred in numerous dramas, modeled for Pakistan’s biggest brands; in short, there isn’t any territory the actress hasn’t explored. Not to mention, she has made one of the more successful model-to-television and movie star transitions in the Pakistani entertainment industry, like her magnetic performance in Khuda Aur Muhabbat (2011), Naina Syed in Laa (2014), Umm-e-Hani in Shayad, (2017) and Maryam in Maryam Periera (2018). Khan also appeared in a film which is Abdullah: The Final Witness (2016).

But let’s not forget that she was—still is—a unique and remarkable model, as we were all reminded by her triumphant shoots for brands including Khaadi, Sapphire, Gul Ahmed, Sana Safinaz to posing for various other brands. She was the brand ambassador of Khaadi for 3 years, and the brand ambassador for Ufone for more than 2 years. Sadia Khan was modeling from an early age, spending her teens posing for photographs. She then made it as an actress, filling her resume with unconventional and unique roles. The triple threat performer is not only an actress and a model, but also a singer and songwriter. Is there anything that this star can’t do? We don’t think so.
