Imran Ashraf Spills the Beans Over Playing a Transgender Role

imran ashraf

Aye Aye Mazay! One of the most talented and versatile stars of our showbiz industry Imran Ashraf has been creating waves around the country with its exceptional acting skills.

He is one of the few actors who can flawlessly play any character and people absolutely love him for his talent.

The actor came under the spotlight after his unconventional acting in ‘Alif Allah Aur Insan’ in which he played the role of a transgender.

Soon after, Imran Ashraf joined hands with Iqra Azia for TV serial Ranjha Ranjha Kardi and it turned out to be the most-watched drama of the year.

Surprisingly, Imran Ashraf has also been targeted by trolls for choosing such unconventional characters but it is so good to see that he never paid any attention to them.

During his latest interview with Haroon Rashid, the actor was asked that people often laugh at him for doing such characters to which he said:

People did laugh at me. For ten years people have laughed at me. For eight years I have tolerated peoples’ joke. People used to call me a minor supporting actor. These are the words I heard but I had belief. I was going to do this. I kept asking god for help. I kept working hard and look.

Have a look at his interview below!

WhatsApp 1000GB Data Scam is Putting you at HIGH Risk!

0
whatsapp scam

WhatsApp users are asked to beware of a new scam that has taken over the social media app!

A message has been circulating on the app claiming to be offering 1000GB of free internet data.

The campaign is hosted by a bogus domain that claims to offer such offers from well-known brands.

Those individuals who click on the link are redirected to a page that invites them to answer a number of questions in order to be eligible for the free data.

While you would be responding to the questionnaire, the site would invite you to pass along the offer to at least 30 more people in order to qualify for the big reward’. Needless to say, this is merely a way to boost the campaign’s reach – Researchers from cybersecurity firm ESET

Hidden WhatsApp Malware Compromises 25 Million Android Phones!

The researchers further warned users that the purpose of the campaigns is to get users to click on the link and be redirected.

Apparently, their goal here is ‘click fraud’ – a highly prevalent monetization scheme that relies on racking up bogus ad clicks that ultimately bring revenues for the operators of any given campaign warned ESET.

Similar scams have invaded WhatsApp before as well. Some claim to be giving away a free Toyota on the company’s anniversary while other links offer other assets in return.

According to News18, in 2017, a similar WhatsApp-themed scam made the rounds that promised to unlock free Internet access.

In reality, users ended up on sites that signed them up for premium and costly SMS services or installed third-party apps on their smartphones.

Think before you click!

This Transgender Woman’s Food Delivery Startup Service is Truly Inspiring!

0

It is no secret that the concept of Transgender rights is still considerably alien to Pakistanis as we continue to systemically marginalize them and treat them like 3rd class citizens.

However, the good news is that there have been developments thanks to the the Transgender Persons (Protection of Rights) Bill 2018 introduced in the Pakistani National Assembly.

Now, the community is recognized as a gender of their own by the law, and measures for their welfare are also being taken by the government. Many organizations have also began giving employment to transgender individuals, which is great.

Even better is when we hear news of the community’s individuals being empowered to the extent that they have their own startup businesses.

A great example of that is Moon, a trans woman who has started a monthly food delivery service in Lahore called Koonda Chaari.

Feminists and human rights activists in Pakistan are rejoicing at the news and sending love to Moon.

She is also receiving good reviews on her facebook page.

We wish her all the best in her endeavor and hope that it achieves all the success in the world!

Now that the dust has settled and I am done with exams, let me put this out there as to how happy I am for you. You have always been my bacha, my sister and the one I will move worlds for if possible. I know I am not there with you since 4 years, be it your birthdays or this day. But I want you to know how excited, happy and overwhelmed I am for this phase of your life. You are an amazing daughter, sister and I am sure great fiancé too. I have met only one more pure-hearted woman than you, that is our mom. I read too many a things online about the proposal, about all the religious debate, moral debate and somewhere ethical too. I know how all of that has taken us aback and how we moved ahead despite of all the unnecessary discussions. Yasir, you are an amazing person and I am happy that you both take care of each other this well. I hope God blesses you both with the best adventures, exciting life and loving memories for this phase that is ahead of you both. My suggestion to you both is, there are fights and then there are battles. We choose our battles and not the meagre fights and we choose our battles wisely and fight for them. May you both help each other grow more and better. Baki, kuch tau log kahenge, Logun ka kaam hai kehna. Love and blessings to you both, and as Mom says, hamarey ghar ki tau pehli khushi hai.

Pakistanis love wedding news, be it about a friend or relative’s wedding, or be it about a celebrity’s wedding.

Pakistanis also love rumors, and jump at them like they’re free cupcakes.

The wedding news currently taking social media by storm is that of Hassan Ali’s wedding rumors with Shamia Arzoo.

Yes, we’re calling it a rumor because Hassan has very recently given a statement that his wedding news is not confirmed.

Hassan Ali Breaks Silence on Wedding Rumors with Shamia Arzoo

However, we’re still more concerned about the girl he plans to marry: Shamia Arzoo. We’re so curious that in attempts to dig for photos and other details about the fast bowler’s possible bride to be, we’ve been posting photos and collages of Hassan Ali with Shamia Azmin Ahmad, a make up artist and beauty influencer.

https://www.instagram.com/shamiaazmin/

Take a look at all the tweets circulating with the WRONG girl’s photos:

When the truth is, Shamia Azmin Ahmad is already married.

Apparently, Shamia Arzoo has made a Twitter account to clarify that she is the women Hassan Ali plans to get married to.

Huawei

Huawei announced its business results for the first half of 2019:  USD 58.34 billion in revenue, a 23.2% increase over the same period last year. The company’s net profit margin for H1 2019 was 8.7%.[1]

According to Huawei’s Chairman, Liang Hua, operations are smooth and the organization is as sound as ever. With effective management and excellent performance across all financial indicators, Huawei’s business has remained robust in the first half of 2019.

In Huawei’s consumer business, H1 sales revenue hit USD 32.1 billion. Huawei’s smartphone shipments (including Honor phones) reached 118 million units, up 24% YoY.

The company also saw rapid growth in its shipments of tablets, PCs, and wearables. Huawei is beginning to scale its device ecosystem to deliver a more seamless intelligent experience across all major user scenarios. To date, the Huawei Mobile Services ecosystem has more than 800,000 registered developers, and 500 million users worldwide.

In Huawei’s carrier business, H1 sales revenue reached USD 21.29 billion, with steady growth in production and shipment of equipment for wireless networks, optical transmission, data communications, IT, and related product domains. To date, Huawei has secured 50 commercial 5G contracts and has shipped more than 150,000 base stations to markets around the world.

In Huawei’s enterprise business, H1 sales revenue was USD 4.59 billion. Huawei continues to enhance its ICT portfolio across multiple domains, including cloud, artificial intelligence, campus networks, data centers, Internet of Things (IoT), and intelligent computing. It remains a trusted supplier for government and utility customers, as well as customers in commercial sectors like finance, transportation, energy, and automobile.

“Revenue grew fast up through May,” said Liang.

Given the foundation we laid in the first half of the year, we continue to see growth even after we were added to the entity list. That’s not to say we don’t have difficulties ahead. We do, and they may affect the pace of our growth in the short term.

He added:

But we will stay the course. We are fully confident in what the future holds, and we will continue investing as planned – including a total of USD 17.44 billion in R&D this year. We’ll get through these challenges, and we’re confident that Huawei will enter a new stage of growth after the worst of this is behind us.

‘Kuch To Hua Hai’ Song from Heer Maan Ja will Sweep you off your feet!

Kuch to hua hai

After giving us successful music videos of hit dance numbers ‘Addi Maar’ and the title track of their upcoming movie Heer Maan Ja, IRK Films and Arif Lakhani Films, in collaboration with Geo Films, have released ‘Kuch To Hua Hai’, the romantic track from the film.

A soft, slow track has vocals by the debutant Rameez Khalid and the versatile Aima Baig. The music for Kuch To Hua Hai has been composed by Ahmed Ali, who has also done the background score for Heer Maan Ja, while the lyrics have been written by Kashaaf Iqbal.

A romantic song to the core, the music video of ‘Kuch To Hua Hai’ features the superhit lead couple of the movie, Ali Rehman Khan and Hareem Farooq, giving us a glimpse of Heer & Kabeer’s romance blossoming in a college setting.

“Despite giving numerous hit projects together, this is the first time Ali (Rehman) and Hareem (Farooq) are seen romancing each other,” according to Imran Raza Kazmi, the producer of the film. “It has been something their fans have asking us for  – and we thought it’s time we give the #AlReem (their mutual) fans their favorites romancing on screen, showing the brilliant chemistry these two stars share.”

Heer Maan Ja is a rom-com and an emotional joyride, filled with comedy, romance, emotions, action, and thrill. Other than Ali Rehman Khan and Hareem Farooq in the lead, the film also includes Faizan Sheikh, Mojiz Hasan and Shumayle Khattak in supporting roles.

Heer Maan Ja is IRK Films and Arif Lakhani Films’ most recent and biggest project to date, which is all set to hit the big screen this Eid-ul-Azha.

Directed by Azfar Jafri, and produced by Imran Raza Kazmi, Hareem Farooq, and Arif Lakhani, Heer Maan Ja has partnered up with Geo Films as the official media partner and Distribution Club for the nationwide release of the movie.


After Ukhano, Has Imam-ul-Haq ALSO Apologized for Exposed Chat Controversy?

0
imam ul haq apology

The storm in whose eye some celebrities – social media and otherwise – have been caught in has been nothing short of crazy.

From Ukhano to Mohsin Abbas Haider to Imam ul Haq, the internet has not been able to stop talking about their stories of domestic abuse, cheating, and manipulating.

Considering the amount of proof their accuser(s) came with, it was only natural that they would apologize, right? Well, not exactly. The former two, Mohsin and Ukhano, have denied all claims and filed defamation reports on their accusers.

Now, let us move to the most recent case, which is of Imam ul Haq. After social media flooding with posts and comments about Imam, we were waiting from official word from Imam and/or PCB to clear the air.

Yesterday, everyone began talking about Imam-ul-Haq’s apology. Upon investigating further we found out that all we have on the matter is a statement from Managing Director Wasim Khan, PCB.

Here is what he said to the media:

“We have talked to Imam, he was apologizing for the mistake he committed, and he [Imam] said that there was some misunderstanding as well,”

He continued to further absolve the matter:

“We have told him about the standards we expect from our Pakistani cricketers, the situation that Imam was in is not good for him as a cricketer well as for Pakistan.

We have told him that he is an ambassador and role model for Pakistan so this kind of behavior is not acceptable, he fully understands this and he will learn from his experience,”

Well, we aren’t quite sure whether or not this can be counted as an apology from Imam himself.

He has a popular Twitter account with a massive following of above 144 k, after all, which he could have used to reach out to the public with an apology. His account is also considerably active, with his last RT being on July 27th.

Moreover, he could also have done an official press conference to speak with the media and send out his message to the public.

But nothing like that has happened. Do you think we can consider this statement from PCB as an official apology from Imam-ul-haq?

Let us know in the comments!

mahira khan mental health day

Last Weekend, the veteran Pakistani actor Firdous Jamal created an uproar on social media after he made some derogatory remarks against the 34-year-old ‘Raees’ actress Mahira Khan.

The actor appeared in Faysal Qureshi’s morning show in which he said:

MAHIRA IS OVERAGED AND ACTRESSES OF HER AGE USUALLY PLAY THE ROLE OF MOTHERS AND NOT THE MAIN HEROINE.

He further added:

SORRY TO SAY, SHE HAS NO SKILLS OF BEING A HEROINE, SHE IS JUST A MEDIOCRE LEVEL MODEL.

Soon after the video went viral on social media, a number of Pakistani celebrities stood up in support of Mahira Khan and schooled the veteran actor for stating such blunt remarks.

Shoaib Akhtar Reveals Plans to Join Rameez Raja and Wasim Akram as a Cricket Commentator

shoaib akhtar commentator

It is not everyday when our favorite celebrities talk to us and answer our questions.

Pakistani cricket fans got lucky when yesterday, Shoaib Akhtar announced that he would do a live question answer session with his fans on Twitter.

Of course, fans and followers made the most out of this opportunity. From personal to generic, they asked him all kinds of questions and he answered most of them.

Some asked him what he thought about Sachin Tendulkar, while others asked him if he liked Kohli more or Sharma.

The session was fun as he even pulled a leg or two when a fan with a difficult-to-pronounce name asked him a question.

Here’s how he responded:

Yar tera naam he bahut complicated hai. Samajh he nahi aa raha.

“Man, your name is so complicated. I don’t understand a thing.”

However, one of the most interesting questions he was asked was this:

“I await the day you will join the commentary box with Rameez Raja and Wasim Akram. When will that day arrive?”

To which the fast bowler responded with:

“It can arrive any day.”

Recognized as the fastest bowler in the history of cricket, delivering a world record top speed of 161.3 km/h, Shoaib has a YouTube channel where he expresses his feelings on the happenings of the cricket world every now and then.

However, seeing him as a cricket commentator like Rameez and Wasim will be interesting and delightful!

Coca-Cola Embarks on a Journey to Discover the Extremist Side of Pakistan!

0

Pakistan is a vibrant country with a rich culture and beautiful landscapes, however, in recent times, its image had been tarnished by the tag of extremism.

No matter how hard we try, we have not been able to remove this tag bestowed upon us. Instead of living in denial, maybe, it’s time for us to accept that ‘yes we are extremists but in unique ways that the world hasn’t heard of before.’

We are extremists, but in our hospitality, in our celebrations, in our passion, and love for our friends and family!

One brand that recently took this daring route is Coca-Cola.

A recent TVC by Coca-Cola was an illustration of the above narrative. The TVC went ahead to debunk the popular belief of how Pakistani’s are perceived as extremists in all the negative senses and shed light on behaviors that make them uniquely Pakistani.

This is how Coca-Cola represented real extremism in Pakistan! 

  • We are extremists in pouring out their emotions both in happiness and sadness…         

  • Sometimes we believe even decorating a bakra can bring us luck…

  • We also believe that the prayers of our nani’s & dadis actually take us a long way, but isn’t this true?:D

  • Our celebrations are also larger than life, when it comes to shadi festivities, our emotions are also at an all-time high and that’s just not limited to the close family.

  • We’re also quite extra when it comes to welcoming our guests with our hospitality, our table spreads are huge..

  • Not one but the whole family goes to the airport to receive our guests..

 

HUM AIK HAIN

Earlier, Coca-Cola launched “Hum Aik Hain”, its official anthem celebrating the passionate Pakistani cricket fans!

The anthem was a modern rendition of the classical song “Is Percham Ke Saye Talay, Hum Aik Hain” and used music to showcase the brand’s journey through the various regions of Pakistan celebrating extremities of our behaviors that make us uniquely Pakistani.

The anthem provided an ideal base for the TVC, showcasing how Pakistani’s are indeed extremist but in unique ways; in their emotional capacity, in passion, in love, in their hope from Pakistan’s cricket team despite in their unpredictability..

The Real Message

Through this campaign, Coca-Cola breaks all shackles and norms associated with myths and rumors that surround our nation. We are often viewed as extremists with a conservative mindset.

As the new TVC shows, we are a peace-loving and passionate nation. We take pride in being extremist in our love, in our hospitality, in celebrating out festivities and most importantly in hope for a better future.

5 Reasons Rain in Karachi Does More Harm than Good: Time For Us To Be Proactive Rather than Reactive

0
rain in karachi

Rain in Karachi is nothing short of a blessing, especially considering how rarely it now occurs.

Karachiites get excited at any and every weather update that includes a rain forecast, and start dreaming of umbrellas and pakoras. The sight of underprivileged children enjoying the flooding streets brings back some semblance of joy and simplicity to the generally worried, anxious minds of Karachi’s residents.

However, while rain is great for plants and our hearts, there is another side to it that makes it rather dreadful for many.

Here are 5 reasons rain in Karachi does more harm than good:

1- Standing Water Yielding All Kinds of Infections and Diseases

According to WHO, standing water caused by heavy rainfall or overflow of rivers can act as breeding sites for mosquitoes. Therefore, chances of infections and diseases such as the following are enhanced:

  • Water-borne diseases, such as typhoid fever, cholera, leptospirosis and hepatitis A
  • Vector-borne diseases, such as malaria, dengue and dengue haemorrhagic fever, yellow fever, and West Nile Fever

2- Demolished Homes Rendering Citizens Homeless on Dirty, Flooding Streets

While many of us make the most out of the rainy season from our glass windows and under our safe cemented ceilings, a large number of people are on the streets because the government decided to demolish their homes a few months ago.

A good example of the same is residents of Ghareebabad, Karachi. This tweet aptly explains the distress of Ghareebabadis and how their misery is amplified due to the lack of safe outdoor spaces.

3- Citizens Dying of Electrocution and Other Incidents

According to various news channels, at least 16 deaths have been reported due to rain-related incidents in the city while many areas suffered from power breakdown that were still continuing.

4- Flooding Streets Making it Nearly Impossible for Citizens to Commute

Rain in Karachi can lead to the roads and streets being flooded to the extent that the water can be anywhere from ankle-deep to knee-deep to deep enough to drown half of your cars in it.

Thanks to which, it becomes near to impossible for people to step out of their houses. Not only that, the water also causes damage to both parked and moving cars, which results to the cars either breaking down on the roads or refusing to start at all.

Of course, that worsens traffic on the roads and results to increased frustration in drivers, pedestrians and traffic authorities.

Moreover, rain also causes the occurrence of grave pits on roads, which gives rise to accidents.

5- Businesses Suffering Due to Power Breakdowns and Lack of Attendance During Heavy Rainfall

Needless to say, when it becomes difficult to step out of the house, people are unable to reach their workplaces which results in more absenteeism which causes businesses to suffer.

Moreover, frequent electricity breakdowns that last too long make it difficult to work for employees who do manage to reach their offices somehow

How Can the Mess be Fixed?

Citizens brace themselves for disappointment whenever rainfalls in Karachi get heavy.

Major responsibility to take care of the city falls upon the shoulders of the government and concerned authorities.

Instead of reacting on the situation at hand, the government must pay attention to forecasts and be proactive. The only way these calamities can be avoided is if the government takes preventive measures ahead of time.

The government must put a special focus on housing, infrastructure, and electricity to ensure that citizens can take rain in Karachi as the blessing that it is instead of dreading it for the hazards.
