Why are we all Hooked to see Imran Ashraf and Neelam Munir as an Onscreen Couple?

Published

Love stories never go out of fashion. After all, the audience likes a good and real love story.  “Kahin Deep Jalay” casting Imran Ashraf and Neelam Munir has been creating the right buzz from the time its promos came out. Written by Qaisra Hayat, “Kahin Deep Jalay” showcases Imran Ashraf as the conventional hero and stars Neelam Muneer as his love interest.

Right from the beginning, the leading lady Rida (Neelam Munir) was introduced as sweet, honest and sincere. The role of Shamila is being played by Nazish Jahangir who possesses a wicked and jealous mindset. She is disliked by her own family due to her carefree and cunning nature. She feels extremely insecure from Rida as she is always Fahaam’s (Shamila’s Fiance) top priority. The plot further unfolds and Zeeshan (Imran Ashraf) enters the frame; a young man from a well-established background becomes deprived as a result of fraud actions by his father’s trusted employee. Resultantly; in a series of dreadful events, he becomes bankrupt and loses his home, property, and parents too. The episode ends on a cliff hanger note, leaving the audience as a curious cat hooked to the next episodes.

Here are the reasons why just like all other dramas with the exceptional storylines from Imran Ashraf, this drama also cannot be missed.

Imran Ashraf, hits after hits, do we need to say anything more? He owns his character completely; right from the first shot, he has our heart. His pain and agony translates so well on screen and connects with the audience instantly. Over the years, he has earned the audience’s credibility with his brave choices and hard work. Let’s not forget, he changed the concept and perception of a mainstream hero with his character Bhola.

Neelam over the years has worked hard to be where she is today. Be it TV or films, the actress is on a successful spree of delivering back to back hit projects. Her astonishing range of becoming a shapeshifter with impeccable performances from “Dil Nawaz” to Dil Mom Ka diya” and now “Kahin Deep Jalay” is the testimony of her sheer talent. We are in awe of her, always!

What a drama without intense romance? No matter what we do, we cannot take the elements of love, care and empathy out of our lives or even from our dramas.

The crackling chemistry between the two as seen in the promos surely got many hearts racing.  Whenever such a thrilling chemistry and a couple is seen on screen, people always ecpect something new and out of the box. Including us, fans are really excited to watch both the stars together. A lot of events happened in the first episode; it would be interesting to see what Imran and Neelam bring to the table for us. Their presence as a couple is definitely a big reason to watch “Kahin Deep Jalay”.

In a big project with strong lead actors, where each actor plays an important part to take the narrative forward, it is very important for the actors to be good. And they are! Ali Abbas, Saba Faisal, Saba Hameed, Nazish Jahangir, Madiha Rizvi, Ali Ansari and Hammad Farooqui. We are keen to see how their roles would impact the overall aura of the drama.

With such flawless actors as an onscreen couple, emotions are raw, real and relatable. We hope that with a combination of a wonderful script, good actors and amazing director, “Kahin Deep Jalay” fulfills to be another blockbuster by Imran Ashraf and Neelam Munir.

Meesha Shafi releases HOT MANGO CHUTNEY SAUCE

Published

on

A Canadian Pakistani Artist, a cultural and feminist icon and a multidisciplinary artist, has released her latest single, Hot Mango Chutney Sauce. Written and performed by Shafi herself, Hot Mango Chutney Sauce is an electro pop dance composition with an unabashedly original desi sound.

 

While the mood of the song is joyful, it cleverly employs irony and sarcasm to question an unfortunate yet comic facet of urban Pakistani society: the rampant obsession with consumerism and the inability to understand ourselves beyond the facade of “wealth” or “success” we put up in social settings. The South Asian artist celebrates her roots and explores why we express our identities by acquiring and flaunting material possessions, instead of nurturing our values and vocalizing principles we believe in.

 

“The idea of writing this song came out of a period of reflection on the rat race we often find ourselves in, where much of the focus is on what people own instead of who they are. It’s a pitfall that is particularly hard to avoid in an industry literally called showbiz, so coming to this realization has been fascinating” said Meesha Shafi.

 

Blending English, Urdu and Punjabi, Meesha speaks colloquially and playfully integrates quintessentially Pakistani idioms and tongue-twisters in her lyrics. “Ultimately, the song pokes fun at our collective identity crisis, which is only worsened by our colonial hangover as many of us have begun to realize. Even within the race, we’ve come to attach a higher value to aspects of pop culture that have no roots in Pakistan or the wider South Asian community. So whether it was cultural references in the lyrics or the visual translation of the track into a music video, I aspired to create something uniquely us – desi and proud”, said Meesha Shafi.

 

Abdullah Siddiqui, who produced the song said: “The themes Meesha was working with on this song really resonated with me because I’ve personally begun to feel like culturally there’s an obsession with keeping up appearances, and sacrificing authenticity in the process. The lyrics really excited me and amused me, especially because they are in such stark contrast to the kind of introspective and sombre work Meesha has been known for, but I’m so excited that people finally get to see this side of her. I had the time of my life producing this track to reflect the spirit in which Meesha wrote it; brash, maximalist, super-charged and unapologetically fun. We tried to create a representation of South Asian motifs that felt completely fresh yet authentic, and I really hope that comes across.”

 

The much-awaited music video has been co-directed by Meesha Shafi and Awais Gohar. The art direction was led by Meesha Shafi and Hashim Ali. The music video stars both Meesha Shafi and Abdullah Siddiqui along with Eman Suleman, Zara Peerzada, Baemisaal and Rubab Ali. To make things even more exciting, the anonymous Instagram sensation known only by her handle ‘Swineryy’ also features on the music video as one of her most popular avatars.

 

The music video for Hot Mango Chutney Sauce can be viewed at: https://youtu.be/aQ2oiqyEzCE.
The song is now available on all major streaming platforms.

Junaid Khan Highlights A Grave Issue Of Society In His Latest Video

Published

on

When it comes to Pakistani performers, who can both act and sing, Junaid Khan comes into mind so quickly. We have witnessed his acting skills recently in dramas like Kashf, Muhabbatein Chahtien and Khuda Aur Muhabbat but his first love music, with which he stared his career as Call band, recurs so often. 

Junaid Khan has released a single Taqdeer this eid, which unlike a usual happy song comes out on eids, highlights the grave issue of violence, especially domestic violence which is taking place in almost every household, every class in one way or another. According to singer this video is dedicated to all the victims that have gone through and keep going through all forms of abuse.

About the song and video, Khan pours his heart out, “What I am presenting to the world is not just a song but an ocean of immense emotions. A very grave issue that I lose sleep over.”

The Nishaan singer further says, “When I see and hear abuse, suffering and pain; it takes me into a very dark space. The evil that is spreading so fast in our own society and all over the world, has suffered humanity in the hands of murderers, rapists, abusers and the list just goes on.”

How someone has to suffer in the hands of an oppressor who only knows how to control and torture another human being, he adds.

The Taqdeer is written and composed by Junaid Khan while the video is directed by As-haar Azmat featuring Talat Mahfooz Butt, Shahreen Iftikhar, As-haar Azmat along with Junaid Khan as lead. The track has a grunge-rock feel in it as the video is shot in a dark background to depict the gloom and pain of the theme. Junaid has proved both his singing and acting skills in this five and half minute’s video which carries a powerful message through a conceptual art. 

According to the singer, the video emphasizes how the Power, control, money and greed can destroy generations but the message that he wants to send across to the world through this song is with bad comes good and with suffering comes ease and that karma will come around.

Elaborating more about the video, Khan says, “The oppressors are so strong and blinded by their own motives that are larger than other human lives. And there comes a point when the oppressed knows nothing better than accepting this painful life as fate. Taqdeer! And on this very notion my song, my voice and my emotions came to life in the form of this song.”

It is true that cases of domestic violence take place every day. Some get swept under the carpet while some come out in the open. The authorities must need to give importance to every violent act taking place anywhere in the country.  

According to a report published by Sustainable Social Development Organization (SSDO) in March 20201, The cases of violence against women and rape in Pakistan were doubled in the last six months of 2020 as compared to the first six months of the year. According to official data analysis, domestic violence (1,422 cases) and violence against women (9,401 cases), had high occurrence throughout country.
