Ho Mann Jahaan Bloggers Meetup and Pre-release Event

Digitz invited me to attend the bloggers meetup and pre-release event of Ho Mann Jahaan at Frere Hall, where the shooting of the movie was already going on.

Ho Mann Jahaan is an up coming Pakistani Movie directed by Asim Raza. Starring Sheheryar Munawar, Mahira Khan and Adeel Hussain.

By looking at the poster I thought it will be a love triangle but the story is about three friends Arhan, Manizeh and Nadir who belong to different social classes but the love of music brought them together and changes their lives. The event was started with arrival of the star cast and the city’s fashionable elite to the red carpet.

After the red carpet, they all headed to the stage where director Asim Raza told us about the movie and the cast. Sonia Jahan, Bushra Ansari, Arshad Mehmood, Nimra Bucha and Jamal Shah are also playing their characters in this movie. He said ‘The film’s music is definitely going to be a big hit considering it is coming from a long list of Pakistan’s finest musicians.’ including beautiful vocals of Zeb Bangash, Atif Aslam, Fakhir Mehmood, Abu Mohammad, Tina Sani, Gumby, Farid Ayaz and Jimmy khan.

After his speech, they finally showed the first teaser of the movie. It was so fresh and full of life.

Finally we have something new other than terrorism and love stories. I am really looking forward to this movie. Ho Mann Jahaan is expected to release on Eid-ul-Azha. More pictures from this event can be found here.

From Pret to Formal, the Zingara Collection has been designed in cotton voil, organza, pure silk and net. Charming floral motifs decorate chikan and cutwork templates, and old-world buillon knots arrange alongside resham and Sanam’s signature beaten nakshi patterning.

“Reflecting the courage of a wandering free-spirit, the Zingara collection will delight the metropolitan sophisticate with a gypsy heart,” Sanam Chaudhri explains. Layered asymmetrical tunics and blouses with high necks pair themselves with both wide-leg and cigarette pants. Short scarves and stoles accentuate both form-fitting sheaths and billowy skirts. From jackets to cropped tops, from lavish to lace, each ensemble is a separate statement of dare and delight.
