Reham Khan is back and she isn’t pulling any punches when it comes to the promotion of her new show. Believe it or not, the PTI chairman’s former wife has co-opted the party’s famous slogan: Tabdeeli aa nahi rahi, tabdeeli agayi hai.

You got that right. We have heard cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan scream ‘tabdeeli agayi hai’ from atop containers and stages numerous times over the past two years, but Reham’s new show promises to bring ‘real change’. How exactly she aims to bring this change is anyone’s guess.

I am Pathan and I fear no one, says Reham on return to Pakistan

Reham has been using the hashtag #tabdeeli on Twitter to promote her upcoming show, and let’s just say not everyone is happy about her hijacking their beloved leader’s slogan.

When a fan tweeted, “I hope that the programme ‘tabdeeli’ will bring a positive tabdeeli in our society,” Reham replied with, “That’s my intention.”

Rhyming away, Reham says in the show’s trailer, “Jo jeeni thi woh jee li hai, Ab mission mera tabdeeli hai!”.

While some couldn’t get over the interesting choice of name for her new show:

    Tabdeeli is icon for PTI. Rehman is taking her share being a formal part of IK in the past.Recommend

    What’s her claim to fame except being Imran Khan’s ex wife? Even couldn’t coin a unique name for her show. Recommend

    “Tabdeeli a nahi rahi, Tabdeelit a gai hay” :)

    Its true that she herself recorded her statement that she did not intend to marry with former cricketer , presently PTI’s chairman Imran Khan but abducted entirely on political basis just to use her(Reham’s) popularity to make himself cemented in all respects, while Re ham Khan was British Nationality holder woman, but to launch mock on her beautiful personality cannot be considered a true and sincere effort to net her without any cogent reason. A person who is eating one Chapati within the ambit of 24 hours cannot be proved perfect especially to perform conjugal rights !! An FIR could also be lodged if Reham Khan will take it serious. She is loving woman which was already mentioned in her features since taking birth. No one could be released who launch mockery with the incentives of a woman. She was victimis of cruel clutches to shatter her heart together with sincere feelings . Law says that one should be sued in a proper court of law if he committed mockery with the emotional courage of a woman.Recommend

    Every ambitious person loves to be in limelight. There is nothing wrong in it. If our society doesn’t like a women and that too a divorcee should not come out of home then it’s society which is wrong.Recommend

    No one knows Reham Khan before her marriage with Mr. Imran Khan. IK is a symbol of unity and he is loved by millions of Pakistanis and he is only one after ZA Bhutto, who is equally respected, accepted and loved by all including Punjabis, Pushtoons, Sindhis and Balochis. Reham was, is and will be an unknown figure, as she is neither a politician and nor a social worker. She is simply trying to remain in headlines and nothing else and after a passage of time,she will be lost from our memories. Long live Imran Khan and continue with your struggle for a corruption free and prosperous Pakistan. Recommend

    Exactly she is not an original hence using tabdeeli. Appears to be a habit of using the ideas of others then blocking some on social media. Recommend
