Show is going to be aired from April 13th.  Show is going to be hosted by Fakhr-e-Alam

Show is going to consist of 12 episodes and it will showcase that what were the problems faced by the people in Pakistan. Aaj Tv is going to provide prime time slot to this show. Talking about the idea behind the program Sharmeen (Pakistan’s sole Oscar award winner) said that
“For too long our television screens have been taken over by politicians talking about politics and in that I feel the stories of the people has been lost.”

Show is not only going to be talking about issues faced by the people in the country but it is also going to suggest solutions, show success stories and provide comparisons from other countries in the region like India, Bangladesh and Iran.

Fakhr-e-Alam who is also serving as the Chairman of Sindh Board of Film censors. Sharmeen said that “I’ve always made films that have made people feel uncomfortable,” she said, “I’m hoping to make Pakistani audiences uncomfortable. It’s time we have these uncomfortable conversations.”

It will be huge refuge for sensible TV audience who is totally sick of the bizarre political talk shows or even worse i.e. sickening Turkish soaps. It was high time that someone actually talked about ‘real’ social problems instead of making masala shows in the name of social responsibility.

Bashar Momin

Pakistan’s most expensive TV serial, Bashar Momin
A&B Productions & Geo TV and  join hands to bring the most expensive TV serial in Pakistan – Bashar Momin – that begins today, only on Geo Entertainment. During a bloggers meet up earlier this week, the journalists and bloggers had a chance to meet the cast and the crew in a five-star hotel, and all were bowled over by the extravagant steps taken by the production team.

Bashar Momin
Bashar Momin

The play has been directed by Syed Ali Raza Usama, fresh from the success of his debut feature film Main Hoon Shahid Afridi. It has been a phenomenon all over the world that a director migrates to films after polishing his skills on TV, but Usama breaks that taboo for he doesn’t consider himself bound at all. ‘My work is my ibaadat; I am not bound by size of screen.’ Syed Ali Raza Usama said when asked about his return to TV screen. ‘Main screen dekh ke mehnat nahi karta … if I get a good script to direct, I wouldn’t hesitate to pursue the project, even if it was for the radio.’

For a director who called the shots for Geo TV’s magnum opus Kaash Main Teri Beti Na Hoti, Usama doesn’t have any hang-ups. ‘After Main Hoon Shahid Afridi, I realized that you can work at a lavish scale even on TV, and that’s why in Bashar Momin, I have tried to give the feel of a film. The TV industry in Pakistan has the potential and I tried to tap into the territory from the eyes of a filmmaker, and I hope the viewers would like the output.’

But the actors in the play are renowned TV actors – Faisal Qureshi and Sami Khan – who would be sharing the space with newcomers Sundus Tariq, Ushna Khan, Yasir Mazhar and Maheen Khalid Rizvi. ‘Actually Faisal (Qureshi) and Sami (Khan) are both film actors who migrated to TV when opportunities dried up in films. As for the newcomers, let me predict today that they are very hard-working and have the potential to be good film actors in the future.’

So what makes Bashar Momin a tale of romance, revenge, deception and tragedy different from the rest of the TV serials dominating the air waves? The director feels that the drama – based on the ‘Beauty and the Beast’ fairy tale – will serve as a benchmark since it is the most expensive project ever taken up in Pakistan’s TV history. ‘Never before has the jewelry of Nadia Chhotani been seen on the TV screen, Samia & Azmay’s shoes and accessories have never graced TV and renowned hair expert Nabila was consulted for the hair and makeup looks, something that has never been done before. When you endorse so many quality brands, the price of the screen automatically multiplies and that’s exactly what Bashar Momin has done.’

‘I must also mention that we have used famous brands from the house of well-respected fashion designers Ahmed Bham, Rani Siddiqui, Cotton & Cotton, Humayun Alamgir and Ambreen Khan for wardrobes which is a first for TV as well. We have also used next generation camera setup which will make us standout from the competition.’ The director added. ‘Furthermore, it took us three days to come up with the poster shoots of the serial, and that shows our level of commitment.’

Written by Zanjabeel Asim Shah, Bashar Momin is all set to ignite your screens today at 9 p.m. The meet-up was attended by Asif Raza Mir, the Managing Director of Geo TV, renowned actors like Humayun Saeed, Mehmood Aslam and many others. The only problem with the brilliant launch ceremony was the inept anchoring of Naveed Raza who called the director to be a trendsetter on as many as 7 occasions (that too in one line), termed Faisal Qureshi as the Johnny Depp of Pakistan (oh please!) and claimed that FQ was the best actor produced by Pakistan ever, clearly displaying his lack of knowledge as well as an absence of a script.

The analyst has used the word ‘Hamara Sultan’ instead of ‘Mera Sultan’. He has questioned the fact of presenting the other side of the story. Instead of portraying the golden period of women, fair judicial system, his successful conquering areas during the Sultan Suleiman reign,  the drama portrays the Muslim ruler to be highly engaged in luxurious style, and having relations with women, irrespective of religious differences. Alcohols, dance performances, which are forbidden in Islam, are portrayed as a norm in that society.

Moreover this drama is giving a chance to some people in specific school of thought who will exploit the content of the drama and instead of taking it as a drama they will take it as a reality and will label the era of Ottomans as an era of Debauchery. These people had not even read the opinions of drama creators, who themselves acknowledged that most of the incidents happened in Harrem & with the Sultan are based on unreal stories.

A British channel has presented a report giving views about the drama as an attempt to promote relations between men and women. The highlighted dark side of the regime presents an inappropriate side of the story. Question here remains, is this being done deliberately to cause defamation to the Islamic ruler?

‘Hamara Sultan’ had had not been like what we see. He has had enjoyed a successful rule over the period. If instead of airing such content, stress is given to establishing Khilafat, the divine Islamic ruling system then, we Muslims would not have to look our Islamic history from the eyes of West. Instead, we ourselves would be self-sufficient to support our notion and our views.

Syeda Mehr Bano Kazim , known by the stage name Juggun “Jay” Kazim , is a Pakistani – Canadian actress, model, and television host. She has worked in numerous Pakistani and Canadian films. She was nominated for MTV Model of the Year in 2008. She is the Brand Ambassidor for Garnier Frits Pakistan.

Personal life

Kazim was born in  Lahore Pakistan, with an elder sister and a younger brother. Her uncle, Raza Kazim, is a renowned lawyer and supporter of the arts.

Her parents separated when she was a year old. Her father, Syed Abbas Kazim, let her work as a child model because “he looked upon it as something cute”, she says, even though her family considered acting—her ambition from an early age—to be too lowly a field for a girl of her station.  Her father was conservative in his ideas about women, and her mother, Ghazala Saigol, was more modern.

She attended  Kinnard College and the  King’s College Canada, where she received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Media. She also holds a Cisco Certified Network certification.

In December 2004, Kazim returned from Canada to Pakistan, when she eloped with Ahmed Tajik, she met him while attending a friend’s wedding. After just over a year of marriage, during which Ahmed beat her, she left him, taking their two-month-old son with her. The father is not involved in her son’s upbringing; she says this was a mutual decision, influenced by her experiences as the child of divorced parents. She married Feisal H Naqvi on 27 June 2013.

Kazim has been involved in media work since she was four years old. In 1985–86 she did advertisements for Samsonite and other products.

She appeared in her first commercial play when she was fourteen, directed by her best friend Mashal Peerzada. Her professional career, where she started using the name “Juggan Kazim”, began in Toronto when Sutherland Models approached her to work as a model. Kazim made her feature film debut in the lead role of “Gugan” in the Gaurav Seth’s film Pink Ludoos opposite Shaheen Khan (Bend It Like Beckham). Since then, she appeared in an episode of David Wellington’s The Eleventh Hour, directed by T.W. Peacock. Kazim hosted her own television show at age 16 until she left Pakistan to pursue her passion for acting in North America. She has also appeared in numerous stage productions in her home town as well as in Toronto. Most recently she played the lead and title role in “Tara” produced by Rasik Arts under the direction of Sally Jones. She mainly does print modeling; her 5-foot-4-inch (1.63 m) stature makes her think that “I’d look rather stupid walking the ramp.” After two music videos with Sutherland, she was approached by Newton Landry Management, who remain her Canadian agents.

After returning to Pakistan, she started hosting television with the show Beanbag, which she also conceived and wrote.  Since then, she has hosted a number of shows for various Pakistani networks. In March 2010, Kazim was named as  L’Orial’s “Brand Ambassador” for their Garnier brand of hair and skin-care products in Pakistan. In 2010, Juggan won Best Supporting Actress Award for Meri Unsuni Kahani on Pakistan Media Award

In March 2011, Kazim acted opposite Shan Shahid in Altaf Hussain’s Lolloywood film Khamosh Raho. As of 6 March 2011, Hussain planned to release the film in Pakistan on 10 June 2011. She is also starring opposite Mohib Mirza, Sanam Baloch and Sunita Martial in Mirza’s upcoming FilmSilent Cinema. She is currently the host of the show “Morning with Juggun” which airs on PTV Home every weekday.
