The official soundtrack of the film Dekh Magar Pyaar Say was released at a rather dismal and mismanaged event in Lahore on Tuesday. After launching three music video promos online, touting a launch event that’s open to the masses seemed like a poorly strategised decision.
Hordes of people surrounded the cast and playback singers of the film and pushed and shoved till they got their prized selfies. However, the leading pair, Sikandar and Humaima was a sight for sore eyes and added the much needed glamour to an otherwise chaotic event.
Humaima looked pretty and cool in a custom-made Saira Shakira tangerine top with crisp white bellbottomed. The colour was one that not everyone could pull off but Humaima did complete justice to it. The style of her top was not one of our favorites especially with flared pants and we wish she had picked a more structured top that showed off her svelte form. The leading lady kept her hair tied back in a fishtail braid and wore some great accessories. Her makeup, done by Maram Aabroo, was on point with glowy skin and bright lips for the summer.
We couldn’t help but look at Sikandar with love because he looked so fittingly dressed for the occasion. He donned dark Pepe jeans and a waistcoat with the perfect hint of colour in the form of a pocket scarf ala Almas. His hair was done by his good friend and stylist Shammal Qureshi of Toni and Guy and we can’t complain. Nothing like the rickshaw driver he plays in the film, Rizvi looked every bit the lead actor of the film.
