Veena, Ashmit set to star in Super Model

After making waves on Indian reality TV show Bigg Boss, Veena Malik and Ashmit Patel are set to star together on the silver screen now.
The actor, who recently celebrated her 25th birthday, will star alongside Ashmit in the upcoming movie Super Model.
Despite rumors of a relationship and their onscreen intimacy on the reality TV show, Veena had earlier said that Ashmit was “her buddy”and that there was nothing beyond friendship between the two of them.
“Veena’s life as a celebrity has also gone through many phases and many controversies surrounding her and professionally also she is a successful model and actress, and is the apt choice for the film,” says the director Navin Batra.
The film will be shot in Fiji and Australia.
The actor has been at the centre of a number of controversies in both India and Pakistan. The latest controversy erupted after a court order to look into a complaint that Veena was spying for Pakistan.
Delhi police investigated the matter and reported that Veena had denied the allegations. The original complainant had said that Veena’s tattoo in a risque photo shoot for FHM magazine indicated that she was spying for the intelligence agency.
Veena is currently focusing on the release of her Bollywood films and a reality TV show.

Karisma Kapoor for a Pakistani brand Crescent Lawn

Summers in Pakistan seem to be dedicated to Bollywood, as super slick films hit the theatres and the billboards get plastered with Bollywood bevies endorsing lawn brands. The trend began with the reigning queen of Bollywood Kareena Kapoor stunned us with her campaign for Firdous lawn, and then Crescent lawn picked up on the game, and added spice with Sushmita Sen. This year, while Firdous roped in Sonam Kapoor, Crescent chose the elder Kapoor, Karishma, who in an exclusive interview via email, discusses this year’s collection with The Express Tribune. Certainly the Kapoors seem to be towering (quite literally) this summer in Pakistan. However, unlike Sonam and Kareena, Karishma — who played a pivotal role in making fashion designer Manish Malhotra the fashion powerhouse that he is today — took her time to join the brands bandwagon.
You seem selective about your projects. What made you endorse this collection?
I am very selective about the projects and the brands that I choose to endorse. I chose to endorse this collection because it had everything that defines my own style — elegance and panache coupled with substance and value.
As an endorser, what are the key attributes you look for in a brand?
I can only endorse products that I see myself using, and in this case, wearing. I feel it is more important to believe in the product itself, so that one can wholeheartedly endorse it. There should always be an element of truth in advertising no matter what the product is.
Inner beauty or outer beauty? Which one would you pick?
I would choose inner beauty without giving it a second thought.
Given the increasing frequency of cross-cultural exchanges between India and Pakistan over the last few years, how do you see the future panning out?
I speculate a peaceful, prosperous and hopefully, brighter tomorrow. There is a lot we can learn from one another.
How was the experience of working with designer Faraz Manan of Crescent collection?
It was great fun and I loved wearing his clothes because they were according to my aesthetics. Everything went smoothly and the whole shoot was done in a very professional way.

Launching across Pakistan on the 27 Feb, 2012, exclusively available at:

Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy’s documentary wins Oscar for ‘Best Documentary, Short Subject’

Pakistani journalist and documentarian Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy’s latest venture Saving Face has won an Oscar award under the category ‘Best Documentary, Short Subject’.
In her acceptance speech, Chinoy dedicated the award to “all the heroes working on the ground in Pakistan” including British Pakistani plastic surgeon Dr Mohammad Jawad, main subjects of the documentary and the women of Pakistan.
“All the women in Pakistan working for change, don’t give up on your dreams, this is for you,” she said.
Dedicating the award to main subjects Rukhsana and Zakia, Obaid-Chinoy said that their “resilience and bravery in the face of such adversary is admirable”.
Co-director Daniel Junge said he had the idea for the film after hearing about Jawad, and asked Chinoy to work with him. He has been previously nominated for an both an Oscar and an Emmy.
“To win … and with such a subject – it’s such an honour,” he said.
The documentary Saving Face chronicles the work of Dr Jawad, who performed reconstructive surgery on survivors of acid attacks in Pakistan.
The documentary, which is filmed across Islamabad, Rawalpindi and the small towns of Punjab, was released in the US in November. It is due to release in the UK in March 2012, following which it will be released in Pakistan.
“The women who decided to be a part of the documentary did so because they wanted to make their voices heard and wanted to bring attention to this form of assault,” Chinoy said in an interview conducted before she won the Oscar.
“The main reason that they are in Saving Face is to make their stories heard and have an impact.” Many victims are women attacked by their husbands, and others assaulted for turning down a proposal of marriage. One girl in the documentary describes how she was burned after rejecting the advances of her teacher. She was 13 at the time.
Another woman featured in the film is 25-year-old Rukhsana, whose husband threw acid on her and her sister-in-law doused her in gasoline before her mother-in-law lit a match and set her on fire.
Chinoy said she hopes the cases in her film will resonate for others in Pakistan.
“It is a story of hope with a powerful message for the Pakistani audience. I felt this would be a great way to show how Pakistanis can help other Pakistanis overcome their problems,” she said.
Chinoy’s films have won international acclaim. Her 2010 documentary, Pakistan’s Taliban Generation, won an International Emmy Award.
At the ceremony, Obaid-Chinoy chose to wear female designers, from her clothes and her jewellery.
“I am wearing Bunto Kazmi for the ceremony and will be wearing Sana Safinaz and Saniya Maskatiya for Oscar-related events. My jewellery will be done by Kiran Aman of Kiran Fine Jewellery and Sherezad Rahimtoola of Labels. I am really excited to showcase local Pakistani talent, and that too all women,” revealed Chinoy.
