‘Reel life’ couples: Let’s talk love

Lights, camera, romance! It’s no surprise that couples who have chemistry on-screen can pull off romantic and love-infested roles better than those who lack that ‘sizzle’ factor. In some cases, it is dubbed as the most important part of cinematic experience, as any film or drama serial can fall flat — and be easily forgotten — without the right chemistry.
From Lollywood of 1960s and 1970s as well as the PTV plays of 80s, we’ve had an array of couples whose on-screen romance still tugs at our heartstrings.
Zeba and Waheed Murad
Their on-screen romance came to the fore with Pakistan’s first ever platinum jubilee film Armaan (1966), popular for the song “Akale Na Jana”. Armaan was so well-received by the people of Pakistan that the film managed to complete a 34-week run at the Naz cinema in Karachi and a 76-week run in other cinemas.
It was Armaan that set the standards for the kind of connection that was required in a quintessential love story. Hence, following the commercial success of this film, Zeba and Murad became one of the most sought-after joris of Lollywood. Clicking together for eight years, they gave us films like Ehsaan, Rishta Hai Pyar Ka. However, much to the dismay of their fans, the on-screen pair had to part ways when Mohammad Ali crept in Zeba’s private life.
Shabnam and Nadeem
It was the film Aina (1977) that captured Shabnum and Nadeem’s classic on-screen chemistry. The film, essentially a love story of two people from very different social classes, holds the honour of having received the ‘Crown Jubilee’, running for over 401 in cinemas weeks across Pakistan. It’s reported that the impact of the film was so intense that when the couple showed gestures of love, viewers would smile and when they parted, the audience felt their pain.
Following the success of Aina, the couple, which topped every producer’s list, were later seen in DehleezKurbaniBandish to name a few.
Shahnaz Sheikh and Asif Raza Mir
Shahnaz’s shy demeanour and Mir’s cool-and-dashing-guy-attitude in TV drama “Tanhaiyaan” (1985) stole many hearts. The beauty of their love story, as captured in the show, lay in the fact that it was a conventional love story, with covert and hidden romantic gestures, and most importantly, something the audience could easily relate to.
Marina Khan and Rahat Kazmi
There was something about Khan’s tomboyish looks and Kazmi’s gentle manners that made “Dhoop Kinare” (1987) a heart-warming love story. The PTV drama, which revolves around a team of doctors and their routines at the hospital and private lives at home, is said to have propelled both Kazmi and Khan into being two of the most sought-after stars in the Pakistani television industry.
Mahira Khan and Fawad Afzal Khan
The leading characters of Hum TV drama “Humsafar” are making quite a splash these days. With everyone — from your 10-year-old sister to your 80-year-old grandmother — waiting anxiously for the 8 pm soap, “Humsafar” is arguably getting this tsunami of attention due to Mahira and Fawad’s on-screen chemistry.

Meera: ‘I am leaving Lollywood’

KARACHI: Before Veena became controversy’s favourite child — there was the ever notorious Meera. The Express Tribune sat down with the sultry actor for an intimate interview where she shared details on her past relationships, the apparent copycat Reema and settling down for good.
About marriage to Naveed Shehzad
Meera: This marriage was completely decided and approved by my family. He is a family friend and also happens to be my brother Ahsan’s friend. My mother will decide the engagement and wedding dates. All I know about him is that he is a captain in an airline company and his family has shares in United Airways.
On her show ‘Kaun Banega Meera Pati’
Meera: It was a fun show but I don’t think I will ever do it again. I did it only for my fans.
On bidding farewell to Lollywood
Meera: Four days ago, I decided to leave the film industry. I have returned Rs5 million which were given to me in advance for upcoming projects. I no longer want to be associated with Lollywood. I am working on a new image for myself and planning a production with people from outside the Lollywood circle.
On copying Reema and Veena
Meera: I am not following Reema’s footsteps. If you’re referring to the marriage rumours, media speculations about my marriage have been rife for the past 10 years. I won’t lie; I always wanted to settle down. At first, it was with filmstar Saud. However, my mummy and Sangeeta Appa rejected the proposal. They asked me to concentrate on my career, as I was single-handedly supporting my family.
In reality, Reema follows me. If you research, you’ll see how Reema and Veena have copied everything I have done. I was the first one to go to India, I also co-produced the film Nazar and I was the first one to work with Mahesh Bhatt. Now look; Reema has produced her own film, Veena has gone to India and even befriended Ashmit Patel. It’s funny that Patel is the same man who proposed to me a long time ago. Additionally, Veena gained popularity doing parodies of me.
 About Veena’s bold shoot
Meera: Doing nude shoots is one of the easiest ways to gain popularity. Starring in a racy item number is a close second. For instance, I was offered Rs500 million to participate in “Bigg Boss” but I did not take up the offer.
On her relationship with Shoaib Akhtar
Meera: Two years ago the media spread rumours about my affair with Shoaib Akhtar and I admit I was involved with him. However, Shoaib does not take his relationships seriously. He proposed to my cousin and me on the exact same day. He even hit me in front of PTVstaff. Even then, I never brought it out in front of the media. He is a man who wasted a year of my life and hurt me tremendously. Still, I wish him all the best.
About her controversial Bollywood kiss
Meera: When the media attacked me, there was no one to support me. Even Mahesh Bhatt disappeared at the time. Due to this media upheaval, there came a point in my life that I did not have a penny in my name. These were tough times but made me a stronger person. I am confident about who I am as a person and what my goals are in life.
On acting in Bollywood again
Meera: If a really good offer comes my way, only then will I accept it. I want to change my image completely. It saddens me that I haven’t produced any good work for the past four years. I want my fans to finally say: “nobody can compete with Meera”.
