The Reluctant Fundamentalists

Pop sensation and now an established actor Ali Zafar has finally made it to the international film Market. He has auditioned for Mira Nasir’s film ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalists’.
The film is the adaptation of Mohsin Hamid’s bestselling novel. The film wil be produced in a Hollywood studio and will be shot in English. If Zafar gets confirmed for the role, the film will prove turning point in his career.
The interesting thing is that Ali Zafar has again linked with a film based on post 9/11 events and problems, first one being ‘Khuda Kay Liye’.
Everyone dreams of acting in Hollywood. For Ali the dream is just a nod away. Who knows he may impress Steven Spielberg for his next project.

Sana's Comeback to Silver Screen

Where other Lollywood stars including Meera, Afzal Khan, Sahiba and Saleem Shiekh are heading towards small screen, Sana is the newest addition to this list.
The model cum actress Sana, who tied the martial knot with Fakhar Imam, has also opted to work in television productions.
“There aren’t many films being made these days, but I’m working on the several TV productions. I have no plan to go for the cheap Punjabi flicks that our film industry is churning out these days. I love working in films but things are not good these days,” she confided to a friend.
But it is not all over for Sana in the film industry. Grapevine revealed that her best friend Javed Shiekh is working on a film project, which he is expected to announce shortly. Of course Sheikh Jee will not give that lead female role to any other actress. She will again shine on the silver screen thanks to old connections.

Couture Week Blunders

The first Bridal Couture Week at the Royal Pal Golf and Country Club in Lahore was not a disaster but it left lot to be desired for. It was evident that the organizers had not done their homework properly. The first blunder was that it was held on the rooftop in this chilly weather. A lot of visitors left after the first halves on everyday. Those braving the cold had to pay heavy price. A number of fashion lovers had fever and cold. When the week closed many were in bed due to fever. Pity the models had to wear those skimpy clothes on the ramp in the cold weather.

Acting is like an ocean. To measure its depth, many artists vanish as darkness of unpopular. To keep the popularity among fans of artist is really a hard task, due to competent environment of showbiz. Very few artists have been successful in retaining the graph of popularity. One at times some artists ruled the showbiz for many decades. Up till now, many artists are keeping them popular for years. One name in this includes Maria Wasti. Maria Wasti is very intelligent and versatile actress. Many times she has received awards. She got opportunity to show her abilities in sensitive titles of women. She was born in African country Tanzania. Tele film ‘Sara Aur Ammara’ and ‘Raam Chand Pakistani’ is considered as back bone in her career. Both of these dramas show her talent. We talked to Maria Wasti about her profession as well as personal life which are written here for our viewers.
Maria Wasti Interview:
Beginning the talk Maria Wasti says; “I am very busy actress now a day. There is no truth about my hiding from showbiz. Due to work, I hardly get chance to work at a single place. Perhaps this is the reason people think I am out of screen. Now a day, I am working in many soaps and opera in private TV channels, which includes ‘Buri Aurat, Tujh par Qurban, An Kahi Batain, Hatheli Pe Chand and Barish ki Arzoo.’

I inaugurated my personal production house in 2002. By this, I have produced many drama serials and sitcoms which includes ‘Hatheli pe Chand and Boom Boom’. To control a production house is not a piece of cake you have to keep an eye on both inside and outside of production matters. Producer is also important because many families depend on producer. Everyone keep the eye on producer regarding financial resources. Thought behind personal production house is to compete with neighboring country regarding drama serials by improving quality and glamour. Our media is going to new way of progress. We cannot compare our channels with others. Now, there comes folds of channels and even people do not have time to watch every TV channel. That was time when roads became unpopulated at the time of airing on of drama serials like ‘Waris’ and ‘Tanhaiyan’ but now, best dramas also cannot get attention of most people.
After I am free, I prefer to spend my spare time with my family. I am fan of music since my childhood. Drama serial ‘Kallu’, ‘Boota from Toba Tek Singh’ and ‘Sheeshay ka Mehal’ is among my most popular serials. I am very much fond of travelling. Many times I visit to England, Scotland and Thailand after completing my serials consider acting as best source of gaining knowledge.
I am totally against any interruption in my personal life. I got many chances to perform in films which I denied with thanks. Last year, serial of Mehreen Jabbar ‘Raam Chand Pakistani’ was my first film. This story is based on truth in which a boy mistakenly goes to India by crossing the border. I have some terms and conditions by which I will decide whether I will go for films or not. My signing in film of Bollywood or Lollywood will depend on script and finance.”
