Ramazan shows: Will you tune in to Veena, Maya Khan or Aamir Liaquat?

Seekin­g forgiv­eness for their sins and fighti­ng in a battle for rating­s - it's Ramaza­n time in Pakist­an.


Shaheryar Popalzai July 16, 2012

As the arrival of the holy month of Ramazan nears, promos for shows on different networks are out in strength as the ratings war intensifies. Brace yourselves - this year your TV screens will be taken over by celebrities, sportsmen, controversial anchors and talk show hosts during Iftar time!

First up is everyone’s favourite actor and model Veena Malik. The controversial actor will be appearing on the Hero TV show “Astaghfaar”.

A stern warning to “seek forgiveness for your sins” and visuals of hellfire are followed by a very emotional Veena, who in a sultry voice tells us that she will be seeking forgiveness for our and her sins throughout the holy month. A lone tear drop makes an appearance by the end of the promo. Very emotional.

Needless to say, we’re excited about seeing Veena on the show.

Remember Maya Khan? Yes the one who raided the public park and ran after couples asking them about their marital status. Good, because Maya will also be appearing for Iftar transmissions on ARY Digital alongside TV host Dr Shahid Masood on the show “Sheher-e-Ramadan”.

Maya says:
Hum banain gay sahara eik dosray ka, kyoon kay humay hay ehsaas apnoon kaa.

We know you care, Maya. Who knows what she has in store for the viewers this time.

The legend is back. Dr Aamir Liaquat of "Aalim Online" and Ghalib film fame is also back on Geo. His return to the network was celebrated in a song by the host himself and Mr Jeem, Geo’s mascot.

The good doctor will be hosting the show “Pehchan Ramzan”.

And then of course there is Lala. Everyone’s favourite cricketer Shahid Afridi will be on Express Entertainment this year, appearing on the show “Mehmaan ka Ramazan”.

Iftar time just got a little more interesting.

The Truth | 9 years ago | Reply WHO cares??? I don't watch TV. And this is NOT news. The only people who find any of this worthy of discussion are the lowlife mentality Pakistanis who think they own other people. The Jew Central Bankers OWN YOU and your ENTIRE COUNTRY. What are you going to do about THAT?? Maybe we should discuss that instead? How about an article on something useful, Tribune??
