My Mentor and the real Superstar of Pakistan SHAAN.

I had a chance to meet Shaan Yesterday… He is working on post production of Zarrar and Earth 2.  Saw the glimpses of both the films. Gosh!! what an awesome experience that was, I can’t wait to watch the full film. Cinema lovers will get to see the beautiful films Earth 2 and Zarrar.

I was always a huge fan of Shaan’s direction. He was ahead of his time (race against time phrase) . And now he has become even better. So watch out all the directors he is coming with a bang to show you how movies should be made, and how a hero should look and act 😉

Big Congratulations Shaan. Way to Go 🙂

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!

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 😉

A Conversation With Finance Minister of Punjab

Well! I did a show today on 92 channel celebrating Women’s day. And was pleasantly surprised to know that the finance minister of Punjab is a Woman.
I asked her that we are paying 17 percent of tax and in return what are the facilities that we get? She said: I think we should stay on the topic of women’s day during the Live transmission.
In the West if people pay taxes, they get Free Medical, Free Education & many other basic necessities of life. But what are we are getting in return ? When we are paying 17% tax on everything we buy or eat. Then I asked if you could please pass a bill so we can get some budget from government to make movies that Can Show a Positive Image of Pakistan? The answer to that was:

Why don’t you go and ask the multinational companies they have a lot of money they can invest?

So did she try to say that Punjab Government doesn’t have money to invest in movies or anything productive which can show a softer image of Pakistan ? Hmmmm Let’s Just Keep on Making Flyovers but not anything to show a softer image of Pakistan to the world. 😉
