Meesha panned Kanwal for being insensitive on #MeToo!
KARACHI: As #MeToo campaign gives opportunities to those women, who have been through harassment, the debate continues.
However, cynics go haywire wondering how a woman could claim harassment when according to pictures and the record of messages (WhatsApp, Email, and Facebook) it seems that the woman had pestered the man. In case of Reham Khan (though not a direct #MeToo case), many insinuate that she was: i) planted and ii) paid to write the book against Imran Khan!
One of the high profile cases, just to jog the memory of our viewers, i.e. singers Meesha-Ali controversy went ahead some months back.
A number of celebs and people went ahead in support of Ali and Meesha and the issue consumed much of the media time and space.
Many wonder, did (not THAT famous) Mesha Shafi (like many in the West) attempted to gain fame by blaming Ali Zafar?
In such, model Sadaf Kanwal’s recent comments on the #MeToo movement have taken the social media into the storm.
According to the details, the model went to a local talk show and when asked about the said movement she said,“You know aap ke sath #MeToo jab ho, tab bol do. Baad mein aap ko yaad araha hai #MeToo, So I think jab ho bol do.”
“(You know, when you have a #MeToo incident, say it then. Why are you remembering it later? I think when it happens you should say it.)”
She further went on to say, “Agar mere saath #MeToo kabhi hua tou mai bolungi na. aur mai social media pe nahi bolungi mai aap sab ko bataungi.”
“(If I ever have a #MeToo incident, I would say it. And I won’t just say it on social media. I’d tell all of you.)” Her comments took social media into a storm and innumerable social media savvy slam Kanwal for being cold-hearted on such matter.
Responding to Kanwal’s remarks, Meesha also went ahead and tweeted, “Strong eyebrows.. do not make a strong backbone. Pfffft.”
Amid the criticism, PR mogul Fahad Hussain went ahead in support of the model. He took to Instagram and posted several snaps of Sadaf and wrote, “Strong eyebrows, even stronger backbone!”
“Sadaf Kanwal, you are a fighter and a real person. Do not let these negative comments bring you down, they never did in the past, nor shall they do so in the future. More power to you girl” said he. Whereas, Sadaf chooses to bite her tongue at the moment.
Baig rubbishes rumors of making a bio-pic on Nazia!
KARACHI: Rumors making round here in the entertainment fraternity are that pop singer Nazia Hassan’s ex-husband Mirza Ishtiaq Baig is all geared up to make a film on her life.
According to the details, Nazia’s brother singer Zoheb Hassan had threatened to sue Ishtiaq upon doing so. Deliberating about the matter, Zoheb took to Twitter and posted, “Our family has come to know that Nazia’s ex-husband is trying to make a film on her life so he can feature himself and profit from her name and fame.”
The couple tied the knot in 1995 and had a son namely Arez Hassan. It has been considered that the pop star parted ways from her husband before her tragic demise. However, talking about their marriage, Ishtiaq asserted, “Nazia Hassan was my wife until her sad demise in London. Her death certificate confirms our marital status.”
Negating his claim Zoheb Hassan, while posting Nazia-Ishtiaq (April 2000) divorce certificate, stated on behalf of the family: “His (Ishtiaq’s) statements are as false and divisive as himself always trying to create a delusion in public that he is still married to our beloved Nazia so he can keep on gaining from her name and somehow eradicate how he mistreated her to her very last days”:
“Anyone entertaining this individual shall be duly and legally sued by our family as he has no legal right or basis to do so,” warned he.
On the other hand, rubbishing all such rumors pertaining to the movie, Baig stated, “I am too busy at the moment in my business and other engagements.”
“However, if ever plan to make one, I would announce it myself proudly and being her husband nobody can stop me from doing so.”
Nazia gained fame via a program titled Sung Sung aired on Pakistan Television’s (PTV) and became one of Pakistan’s most celebrated stars in the 70s and 80s.
Her award-winning and chartbuster track Aap Jaisa Koi, which she has sung at the age of 13 for an Indian flick entitled Qurbaani, made her a shining celebrity both at home and in South Asia.
She claimed a Filmfare Award and turned out to be the foremost Pakistani lady to win the prestigious accolade. Nazia along with her brother successfully managed to sell more than 60 million records worldwide. The duo released Disco Deewane in 1981, which went to the top of the chart.
Unfortunately, the Pakistani pop icon lost the battle of her life on 13th August, 2000, due to the lethal lung cancer at the age of only 35 in London.
