A misleading Pakistani television channel has after all decided to cancel a special show prepared for the holy month of Ramadan featuring controversial actor and model “The Veena Malik” following a public outcry.
Promos for Malik’s new TV show, which featured her trying to look her religious best, swept viral on the social media. The trailers of the show, in which Malik was seen repenting for her sins, with one BIG FAT teardrop rolling down her cheek apparently sparked an outcry across the country.
The show was to be aired on a local channel that claimed to “Show All”; DIKHA DAY SUB KUCH, a part of a media group. The decision to drop the show was taken right when the critiques had rolled up their sleeves to get more lethal.
“TV is for the awaam. If the awaam does not want to see Veena Malik on this Ramadan show, then we will cancel it,” said a member of the production team, adding that they respect the wishes of the populace.
Sniffing cat wonders what segment of the population does NOT want to see the new drama trolling up in town??? Since everyone is looking way too forward to “repent their sins” with Channo.
The “not-so-masala-seeking” people expressed their annoyances and protested via blogs, news reports, comments and social networking websites. They were of the opinion that the controversial queen was completely misfit for such a programme.
Question remains to show or not to show in Ramadan! Ab dikhaa kyun nai rahay sub kuch?
