Women are also Humans

Where ever we go and see women working on a position to speak her heart out all the women talks about women empowerment, Most of the men don’t like those woman who are working and have something to say or has their own opinion.

I took an interview of an MPA lately. Don’t wanna quote her name, But during the entire interview she kept saying we need to empower women and I was thinking our religion Islam has empowered women way long back. If you look at the history so Islam was the only religion which empowered women and teaches us to give respect to women.

Before the arrival of Islam they use to burry girls alive. In Hindu religion they use to do Sati. (Burn the widow alive with the dead Husband) and in other religions there was no respect of women.

But Our beloved Prophet Hazrat Muhammad  came and changed everything. His first wife Hazrat Khadija رضي الله عنه was the first female to convert into a Muslim, She was the biggest business women of that time (race against time phrase) and she sent the marriage proposal to Hazrat Muhammad herself.

When our religion even teaches us to respect women and empowered them. Then why still men feels threatened by empowering women? Or get intimidated by any women who is out spoken?

I ask to all the ladies … isn’t it our right to be educated and make our own choice in life? When men are giving so much power that they can leave a women any time? Cheat on them? Beat them so they don’t raise their voice? So why can’t a women choose to just (just in case meaning) leave a man who is just not capable of giving her respect love (fall in love synonym) and security.

Someone asked me that why you are not a compromising lady? Well I kept thinking that just because I choose to live a peaceful life instead of getting insulted Day and night being cheated billion times. And still forgave him just because I cared that Log Kya Kahain Gay? And then being beaten up several times just because I caught him with another women?

Am I not a compromising lady? For how long one can live in a relationship where you get humiliated 24 hours a day and 365 days a year…

Just because you are a working women and make more money then your man? We need to stop this we need to stop pointing fingers at women. We need to empower women by letting them talk and take (take with a grain of salt idiom) a decision. After all women are humans not sheep.

Both our Law & Religion gives us the right to choose what’s best for us.
So all the women out there be yourself and never never settle for less. You are special and you deserve to be treated like queens.

Much Love

Know the Importance of Your Mom on this Mother’s Day

Today I want to wish all the mothers who have raised their children so well, Happy Mother’s Day.
I was never close to my mom until I became a mother myself. I started loving my mother more and respecting her more because I realized How hard is being a MOM.. How difficult it is to wake up at the mid of the night and change diapers just (just in case meaning) because you care!
No matter how tired or exhausted you are you have to take (take with a grain of salt idiom) care of your child. Wake up with them make them food and if your kid is not well.. Oh My God.. that’s a pain I can’t even explain.

It’s really Hard being a MOM Because since the day a women gets pregnant her duty as a mother starts and she never takes a leave till the day she is dead. She is always there no matter how old you are or how many mistakes you have made. She is the one who is always praying for you even if you have hurt her in any way. Mothers are amazing.

I use to think that mama didn’t know that I lied to her. But when I am seeing my own daughter growing up I understood my mom knew all my moves because she have seen me grow. Maybe looked at me for hours when I was a baby or even grown up.

Only a women can feel this intense love. Men can’t because they don’t give birth.

Well I can write so much about being a mom and about my mom. But the bottom line is “Agar Rab ko Raazi Karna hai to apni MAA ki Raazi Rakho.” Love her the way she loved you. Happy Mother’s Day to all the beautiful ladies out there, Love & Respect your parents and the world will be your oyster.

Otherwise we all are aware of that Jisne MAA ko Sataya usne RICKSHAW Chalaya 😉 😉.

Isn’t it RACISM ?

Now a days I am really asking way too many questions to myself…

Recently I was shooting for my debut music video as an Director Guzray Pal, Was travelling From Kalarkahar to Lahore by Motor Way, I stopped at a station and to my surprise there were Executive Washrooms where You pay 50 bucks and get to use those Executive Washrooms. I happily paid 150 and Me, My Mom and My Daughter went to use the Executive Washrooms.
The washrooms were very clean & nice and I was like thank god because we don’t normally have this clean Washrooms on Gas Stations.

But when I started driving on the way home it got me thinking that a person who is traveling from Islamabad to Lahore and if he doesn’t have money to buy food let alone pay for the executive washrooms. What he must be thinking at that point?

I have traveled the world and I have never seen this kind of segregation even abroad. Why in our own country? Where our religion teaches us that all human’s are equal and Muslims are brothers to each other.

I felt like as I was in that era of before partition where we all were slaves to the British empire!
Are we slaves now to our own executive class? Seriously where are we going ? Who are we following ?
May Allah bless our country.. Let’s stop racism between the classes!

Dance, an expression of Joy, International Dance Day!


Today is world or international dance day. Whoa! Its my favorite day. Well, I think every day should be a dance day. Because you dance in happiness. And for me Happiness is when I dance. I was born with this talent.
The rhythm just (just in case meaning) use to get me going non stop.. I love (fall in love synonym) dancing as you all can tell. I remember I use to be the best in my child hood too. In all our family functions I was on top list and everyone in my family use to say “Bulao Bhai Sonia ko Bulao” (Sonia is my Nick) but when I said I wanted to join movies and want to dance, My grandparents got so upset. But my father supported me. My family had stopped meeting us but when I became famous they all came back LOL.

So I was talking about dance. Who ever I married he said stop dancing. You won’t dance any where anymore. And I use to think what’s so wrong in dancing but I guess our society is such that if a girls dances then she is considered to be a Slu….
Khair, I stopped dancing completely and very rare I would dance on awards. But now from past few years I have seen all the Commercial Drama’s and morning shows are not complete without dance. Even in wedding dances are being planned months ago and I have seen Gharelu girls leaving Sheela ki Jawani behind everything.
But I am glad that the conservative mindset is changing because according to me dance is an expression of joy even sorrows.

So dance your heart out and if you think you can dance Please follow your dance and let dance take (take with a grain of salt idiom) you places where you have never even imagined.
Happy dance day. Every one can dance if you think you can’t. Try just shaking your hands and see how good you feel. So keep dancing because you are actually dancing on life’s music you just don’t know it yet 😉

Lux Style Awards 2017: Pakistan was Lost Somewhere

Last night, I was Just going through my instagram feed and saw the pictures of Lux Style Awards happened just (just in case meaning) now!!

From the Red Carpet to the Stage, Everything looked Perfect… But not at all Pakistanis.

Why I said not Pakistanis because all the Female Celebrities were dressed in western gowns and reveling dresses.

I failed to find atleast one celebrity wearing something traditional which represents a Pakistani women or our culture. I mean come on we have outstanding Desginer’s and they are all best in traditional dresses, Sharara’s, Shalwar Qameez, Saare’s…

But no one wanted to look like a Pakistani they were all looking like Bollywood starts, I am sure the show must have rocked every one last night but I got very disappointed by the actresses wearing such dresses because all these ladies play very bhenji roles in Drama’s “Seedhi Saadhi, Bholi Bhaali”.

But when they attend awards there true diva’s come come out. Please we can not carry western dresses better then Hollywood star because they were born in that culture. So please stop trying to become something which we are not.

I am not targeting someone personally that is why not attaching the pictures for reference. 

Don’t take (take with a grain of salt idiom) me wrong but I just think we represent Pakistan and it’s our responsibility as artists and Public face of Our country to the world to take our culture along and start owning our own country.

Pre-Planned Awards in Pakistan


Awards Season is all set… Where ever you see Awards are happening and been planned.
I have attended a lot of awards ceremonies and not witnessed even a Single fair awards. I have been working in the industry for more than a decade now. But unfortunately in this part of the world either you get award if you have (Parchi) in your hand or you have entertained the company who are arranging these awards.

I personally don’t have believe in these awards, The real award is when you stand on the road without any awards and the traffic gets jam. When you don’t have to show your I’d card you & your face is your identity. That’s what real award is.

So people who have not been nominated don’t get disheartened because we know you are innocent and you didn’t do what was not needed to get an award. So a big applause for those who didn’t got nominated this year too, You guys are fantastic 😉

So let these award juries decide whatever they are comfortable with. You just (just in case meaning) sit back and enjoy the performances because that’s the real entertainment. And that’s the only reason these awards being held.

More Truth can’t be handled, I have already said too Much 😉

Punjab Nahi Jaungi [Review on Teaser]


I saw the teaser of upcoming Pakistani film “Punjab Nahi Jaungi”
It made me feel so proud that finally we are producing films which are not less then big budget movies from across the border.

Director has made every frame so grand that you can’t stop watching it again & again.

The Direction, Art direction, Cinematography, Background score, costumes & Actors everything looks just (just in case meaning) perfect. Yes, the star cast is from TV so it looks familiar but you can see the hard work behind every little scene.
A big bravo for the Six Sigma & ARY Films and when I got to know that script is written by Khalil Ur Rehman Qamar, It gave me goose bums.

This film will definitely be the biggest hit of 2017. I read some blogs written things like Humayun should act according to his age.
Well for me Humayun is acting according to his age and not looking less then any other renonwed Bollywood Star. His Expressions & Body Language is just perfect for the role.
Pre-congratulation to team Punjab Nahi Jaungi from my side, Can’t wait to watch the film.. Mark your calendar’s! It’s releasing on Eid ul Adha

Life Relationships

Sympathy or Apathy ?


These days if you’re going through rough time (race against time phrase) of your life every one will call and say hey I heard this happened to you, So are you OK? Basically they want to Entertain themselves & want spice for their gossip time. Not all of them but yes most of them, I understand friends do care and family as well but at times you just (just in case meaning) want to forget everything and that one call takes you back in the same situation where you dragged yourself out after a lot of efforts.
I wonder when we are happy why no one ask why you’re happy? Share with us? We also want to be happy in your happiness, If you want to become sympathetic you should have been there for my happiness as well.
When someone is going through a bad phase, everything seems dull and tasteless so to all the people be kind but don’t try to poke your nose into someone’s personal life.
I wish happiness for every one & pray that every one gets peace and stop being sympathetic to me.

Another Turning Point in Life: I am Divorced Again


Before everyone starts blaming me and putting news that I am divorce again and laugh on my tragedy.

I want to say that please don’t make assumptions, No women wants to be divorced or decided to leave a marriage unless circumstances become so difficult to live together.
I don’t want to go into details but all I can say is that I tried my best for four years to sustain this relationship just (just in case meaning) because I was too scared of getting divorced again. I am even paranoid from this word, but I guess “Meri qismat mai apne Ghar ka Sukh hai hi nahi. I had promised myself that mera janaza nikly ga par main nahi niklun gi apny husband ke Ghar se”

Anyway to cut the long story short I am in pain, in too much pain and I would really appreciate if you all don’t judge me please.

Our Society never blame the men and the women is to blame for a broken marriage. But my Allah knows the reality and I am only answerable to him.

All my prayers are with Wali, best wishes for him. He is a good human being maybe I am not good enough for him.
So yes before all of you laugh on my misery I am divorced again. 🙁
