Will Arooba Mirza be able to snatch back her rightful   “Haq” from Madiha Iftikhar? Watch Geo TV’s new drama serial MERA HAQ to find out !!

Madiha Ifitkhar is all set to make a comeback in Geo TV’s new venture Mera Haq. Directed by Fahad Rehmani, penned Asif by Asad and produced by the renowned Erum Bint e Shahid. The story seems to be promising as it is grounded on the tantalizing theme of sister rivalry. There’s greed, there’s an intense desire for power and wealth. These notions, if common between biological relatives can have ugly ends and this notion of jealousy between two sisters is so common in our society it has destroyed the lives of many.  The elder sister, Sara (MadihaIftikhar) , gets divorced and shifts back to her parents’ house with her seven year old. The unfortunate series of events in Sara’s life have an adverse effect on her personality causing her to become bitter, resentful and extremely resentful of her younger Saba (AroobaMirza) who happens to be quite the contrary. Saba is inherently warm, affectionate and considerate towards the struggles of those around her.

The story gains momentum when their paternal cousins, Ali (Bilal Qureshi) and Umair( Shamyl Khan) come back from US. Ali and Saba develop a love interest in each other and plan to get married but Sara becomes extremely aggrieved about their blooming relationship, out of her insecurities and stoops to the lowest level of wanting to jeopardize her sister’s relationship. Conniving Sara plots and charms Ali into falling for her and successfully convinces him to marry her instead of Saba.

I think a lot of women out there can relate to the intense pain Saba goes through when her sister destroys her life out of mere insecurities and it will be interesting for me to watch whether this situation hardens Saba and if it will force her to seek revenge from her sister or will she manage to overlook this unpardonable sin committed by her jealous sister. Well I wish for the latter to happen. What do you have to say?

UMM-E-HANIYA – We pledge to be intolerant towards bashing female sports players !!

FINALLY! A drama that does not depict the tragic sob story of a girl dependent on someone else to be her savior or cocoon. Geo’s new drama serial Umm-e-Haniya is expected to receive a phenomenal response especially from female viewers owing to its most unique genre. What sets this drama class apart is that it centers on the life of a girl thriving to be a female cricketer, encapsulating the course of life of a dreamer and a woman with a fierce compassion.

WhatsApp Image 2017-12-23 at 4.09.39 PM

While our female cricketers stay undermined and the public still unpleasantly chants “Females cannot play cricket”, the makers of Umm-e-Haniya have invested in showing all the struggles a girl faces journeying through her formation of a cricketer and have given us innumerate reasons to appreciate them. In fact, it’s about time we become intolerant towards those who post ridiculous remarks about female sports players on social media in an attempt to discredit their efforts.

WhatsApp Image 2017-12-23 at 4.09.40 PM
This drama does not only cover one aspect of how strong and rebellious a woman is capable of being.  Umm-e-Haniya , played by our ever feisty , bold and beautiful NeelumMunir,  chooses to fight another battle against social norms and boundaries when she chooses to rescue a lost new born baby. The drama has not been aired yet but from the sneak peeks of the trailer it seems to show how if a woman intends, can she stubbornly refuse to fit into social norms and march to the beat of her own drums.
Will Umm-e-Haniya surpass all boundaries of notoriety? Will she eventually succumb to the pressure of friends and family? Will she provide this lost baby and secure future at the cost of her own dignity in the society? Well we will find out only when the drama hits our television screens but till then “All hail female sports players out there” !!

Lux White Elegant Gardenia

The three Lux variants are represented by: Maya Ali for the White Elegant Gardenia, Mahira Khan for the Red Hypnotic Roseand MawraHocane for the Pink Charming Magnolia. This blog will be covering the benefits of the White Elegant Gardenia that is represented by Maya Ali.

Symbolizing love, harmony and grace, Elegant Gardenia, the white variant of Lux comes from the flower Gardenia. The plant is a beautiful decorative shrub with fragrant white flowers. The enchanting notes of Japanese Gardenia with the warmth and depth of Cedar Wood Oil is a captivating fragrance. Found in the far east, mainly India and China, Elegant Gardenia is a classic version of the namesake flower which is a perennial favourite especially in the summer. With its sweet smell, the flower is seductive and irresistible and the heady fragrance is enhanced with violet and freesia. The cultural association of Gardenia with upper class French man, as a corset to their attire, was to symbolize prestige. Lux’s connection with the fragrance is also to provide one a royal premium experience by capturing the fragrant essence of the perfume into a soap bar to provide one a truly long-lasting scent.

It was a delight to see the traditional Maya Ali representing the white variant. Moving away from her iconic look, Maya looked like a pure beauty dressed in white. Representing her fragrance, Elegant Gardenia, Maya sparkled in a white dress and shiny gems which complimented her as she strode like a royal. Maya says nobody would remember how bright her diamonds shone but would remember her expressions; which are as strong as the fragrance of Gardenia which stays with your skin after a shower with Lux.

LUX Pink Charming Magnolia

Imagine stepping into your bathroom and having it turn into a blooming garden filled with exotic flowers you’ve never seen before. What if it was true? The three premium Lux soap bars bring to you enticing fragrances with a dash of alluring smells appeasing your senses hence spreading the feeling of calmness, freshness and beauty all over your body. The three Lux variants are represented by: Mawra Hocane for the Pink Charming Magnolia, Mahira Khan for the Red Hypnotic Rose and Maya Ali for the White Elegant Gardenia. This blog will be covering the benefits of the Pink Charming Magnolia that is represented by Mawra Hocane.


Charming Magnolia, the pink variant of Lux is made from the flower Magnolia. With more than 200 different species prominently found in the gardens of France, the flower is also known as French Magnolia and is found in the soft shades of pink. With touches of exotic Kashmir Wood notes and the sweet florally of Magnolia, this is an elegant yet powerful fragrance. It represents luxury, prestige and addiction. The scent smells lemony and citrus like. Fragrance aside, the hardy nature of the shrubs and trees on which these flowers grow have allowed it to survive and thrive in harsh conditions over so much evolutionary time, and it has developed a unique nutrient and organic compound composition over that time as well, representing potentially powerful health benefits for humans. Apart from giving your skin the perfect glow and texture, this variant helps deal with skin allergies.

Representing Charming Magnolia, the pink variant of Lux, Mawra does the fragrance justice by looking like a blooming flower herself with her perfect glowing skin and luscious brown locks flowing down her shoulders. She talks about how the audience would not remember what she wore but would remember her smile and there is no doubt that anybody can forget that.
