Mahira Khan debut at Cannes
Mahira Khan represented Pakistan at the Cannes Film Festival 2018 was a special moment for our country. Her appearance on the red carpet has been one of the most highly-anticipated events of the year, ever since she was announced as the spokesperson for L’Oreal Hair Care back in 2017. After all, Cannes is the biggest and most glamours international film festival, with actors from the world over bringing their style A-game to the red carpet. The eleven days extravaganza is held on the French Riviera every year to celebrate the global film industry. However, over the last 70 years, it has also become somewhat of a veritable fashion show and when our very own Mahira was invited, we couldn’t help but wonder what she’s going to wear to the high-profile events. Virtually every spotlight has been on the Bin Roye starlet as she made her way to Cannes to rub shoulders with the likes of Jane Fonda and Sonam Kapoor. The Pakistani star walked the red carpet at Cannes and she was a vision in an Alberta Ferretti number and Chopard jewels……
The black dress hugged her in all the right places and showed off her sleek frame, while the diamonds were the cherry on top
Meesha Shafi alleges Ali Zafar of sexual harassment!
Meesha Shafi opened up in a Tweet claiming how her conscience will not allow her to stay silent anymore. She opened up and has left the nation in a shock. The singer has alleged fellow colleague, superstar singer/actor Ali Zafar of having sexually harassed her. Stating the incidence, Shafi shares, how it has been harder on her to stay silent, even if coming out in the open is hard. The singer mentioned how how her conscience would not allow her to stay silent anymore.“If this can happen to someone like me, an established artist, then it can happen to any young woman hoping to break into the industry and that concerns me gravely,” said Meesha. Adding further, the singer went on to state how this was ……
not an incident dated back, but had happened to her as a mother of two children, “I have been subjected, on more than one occasion, to sexual harassment of a physical nature at the hands of a colleague from my industry: Ali Zafar. These incidences did not happen when I was young, or just entering the industry. This happened to me despite the fact that I am an empowered, accomplished woman who is known for speaking her mind! This happened to me as a mother of two children.” Ali Zafar is one of those Pakistani artists who has never been scandalized throughout his career. And so for Meesha to make such an allegation, it must not only require courage but absolute truth on her part to say what she has said. And if what Meesha says proves to be true, which we believe it is, Ali Zafar, should prepare to step down from being the nation’s favorite superstar and role model for the youth! However, in a recent turn of events, Ali Zafar has given a statement denying all allegations put forward by Meesha Shafi. Zafar also states that he will be seeking to address the issue through proper courts of law, which we believe is a rather mature choice, than addressing the issue on social media.
