Islooites are all set for their coiffure needs with Toni & Guy’s new salon
The Express Tribune Blogs - about 3 years
ISLAMABAD:  Pakistan’s fashion industry seems hell-bent on defying the country’s current economic conditions, as evidenced by Toni & Guy launching their latest and largest world franchise in Islamabad on Saturday evening. With the addition of the expert salon, it appears the otherwise quaint city will get a chance to add some character to its landscape. “No matter what the economic situation in Pakistan is, our women will always spend on looking good,” said actor Mahira Khan, who was present at the event. She has a point, because Toni & Guy is far from the only international brand that has set base in Pakistan in recent years. The launch was organised and managed by Rezz Events, and featured a special hair and make-up show with 12 models, styled by experts at the salon, trotting down the ramp. The models exhibited outfits designed especially by HSY, House of Kamiar Rokni, Mohsin Ali, Sublime by Sara Shahid, Munib Nawaz and Republic by O ...

US missiles kill 16 militants in NW Pakistan
Fox News - over 4 years
U.S. drones fired four missiles at a compound of a Pakistani militant commander in a northwestern tribal region on Thursday, killing 16 militants, while a pair of bombings in another part of the country killed 10 civilians and three security personnel, officials said. A government administrator in Orakzai region, Salim Khan, said 12 insurgents were also wounded in the drone attack near Biland village bordering the North Waziristan tribal region. Three Pakistani intelligence officials said the dead and wounded men were fighters loyal to militant commander Hafiz Gul Bahadur, who is based in North Waziristan. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to brief reporters on the record. Although U.S. authorities often target militant hideouts in the country's North and South Waziristan tribal regions bordering Afghanistan, such strikes in other tribal regions like Orakzai are rare. The U.S. rarely discusses the u ...

19 dead after thousands riot in Pakistan over anti-Muslim film
Fox News - over 4 years
Pakistan's "Day of Love for the Prophet" turned into a deadly day of gunfire, tear gas and arson. Thousands angered by an anti-Muslim film ignored pleas for peaceful rallies and rampaged in several Pakistani cities Friday in battles with police that killed 19 people and touched off criticism of a government decision to declare a national holiday to proclaim devotion for the Prophet Muhammad. The film, which was produced in the United States and denigrates the prophet, has outraged many in the Muslim world in the 10 days since it attracted attention on the Internet, and there were new, mostly peaceful protest marches in a half-dozen countries from Asia to the Middle East. But it is Pakistan that has seen the most sustained violence, driven by a deep well of anti-American sentiment and a strong cadre of hard-line Islamists who benefit from stoking anger at the U.S. The new deaths brought to at least 49 -- including the U.S. ambassador to Libya -- linked to violence over the film ...

Salman Khan’s silver jubilee in Bollywood
The Express Tribune Blogs - over 4 years
Salman Khan completes his 25 years of success in Bollywood in 2012. Salman, son of legendary writer Salim Khan, has come a long way since the time he debuted in JK Bihari’s Biwi Ho To Aisi in 1987. Though the supporting role itself did not give him the fame he deserved, his next release Maine Pyar Kiya broke all box office records that year. He continued his success in the box office with romantic flicks such as Baaghi (1990), Sanam Bewafa (1991) and Pathar Ke Phool (1991). Although the actor went through some ups and downs over the years, he managed to make a name in Bollywood, nonetheless. ‘Dabangg Khan’ is not only a great actor but also a playboy and one of the most eligible bachelors of B-town. He had his fair share of relationships and break-ups with top actors of the industry, be it Miss India beauty pageant 1980 Sangeeta Bijlani or actor Somy Ali. And for that matter, how can anyone forget the beautiful Aishwarya Rai Bachchan or Katrin ...

The Magic of Haathi Mere Saathi
Bollywood Hungama - over 4 years
It is still the closest Hindi film to Disney. A true children's movie, it is a cinematic milestone in many other ways as well. 40 years after its May 1971 release, Screen revisits the magical world of Haathi Mere Saathi. Simple story, sure-shot success Haathi Mere Saathi combined the magic of the marquee with the charisma of a circus. Ramu, the elephant, went that one step ahead of his performing circus counterpart by also weeping, smiling and becoming almost human in intelligence – he was no mere trained entertainer— he was family. And in the end, when he was shot dead by the villain (who aimed at the hero but Ramu took the bullet), not only did children shed a tear but many a parent too. Raju (Rajesh Khanna) performs with four elephants on the streets for a living. The back-story is that as an orphan, they have saved his life from a leopard. In time, he makes it big, and starts his own Pyar Ki Duniya (The World Of Love), a zoo in which various wild animals reside along with ...

Salim-Javed send legal notice to Zanjeer makers
Bollywood Hungama - almost 5 years
Just yesterday we had reported that Javed Akhtar and Salim Khan were assembling a legal team to battle against the producer of the Zanjeer remake, Amit Mehra. Well, the duo has now sent a legal notice to Mehra claiming royalties for the script that they had penned decades back. Akhtar, who had been on the committee that reviewed the latest Copyright Amendment Bill of 2011, has been the first one to stand up for the rights that the Act ensures. The said bill upholds the Rights of an author in an entire product such as films. And though Amit Mehra, son of producer Prakash Mehra, may have the rights of the film, sharing royalties with the scriptwriters becomes essential. Akhtar and Salim have since hired a Delhi based legal firm, Luthra & Luthra and sent a notice to Mehra asking him to start a negotiation.
