Ahad and Sajjal hint at possible ‘union’

Their instagram accounts are filled with adorable feeds for each other and they are one of the most sought after couples in tinsel town. But, do they have any plans to take this relationship further? Here is the response of Ahad Raza Mir to a question posed by BBC Asian Network.

“I have met Sajjal [Ali] at a very good point in my life because she knows me for who I am, which is I think a very beautiful thing. I love working with her. But along with that she is a very special individual, she is very unique because I find that the way we work together, the best part of that we work the same way, we approach things the same way and I think that is why people enjoy our chemistry so much.”

Well, from his recent statement, it is pretty much evident that Sajal has a very special place in his life and admits that his family love her work.

“We are both huge supporters of each other and my family is a big supporter of her work. We love her because she is a fantastic person. So, whether there is anything like marriage on the cards or not, I think the time will tell.”

On the other hand, Sajjal Ali in an interview with BizzAsia, said, “He’s very special to me, you want me to say something else?” she said in response with a laugh. “Abhi kay liyan itna hi sahe hai (This is enough for now),” she added.

Now, the play of ‘special’ words for each other is enough to raise some eyebrows. There was a subtle confession in those answers so we are certainly taking it for what it is.

[Again] a red-head Momina

Most people love her for long, luscious locks that certainly do their part in making the nightingale a little more classy. In a recent and prominent turn of looks, Momina Mustehsan underwent a major hair dye session where her locks were given the the fiery bright shade of vermillion.

Her tresses have actually been her crowning glory and her identity. But they’ve been a toned down shade of ginger. Recently, Momina spent her day with Lebanese hair stylist Mounir, who’s famous for his hair transformations. She stepped in with (what now) looks like rusty brown hair and walked out with a glossy mane that looked like it was on fire! We would like to see how long Momina keeps and maintains this brave new hue.


Saba says no to Badshah Begum

Versatile, she absolutely is! Saba Qamar, with her one-after-another spectacular performances has become quite a phenomenon. Her role in Baaghi not only brought her critical acclaim but also made her quite picky for her future projects. There are reports that she has said no to the role of Badsha Begum in Moomal Entertainment’s next, for she did not feel the spark in the character that she had to portray.

Talking to the leading daily, Saba confirmed the news, saying, “I feel masses should be able to relate to the characters we play on screen. There should be substance and strong content. It’s better to do nothing than do something for the sake of it. Don’t be busy, be productive.”

Now when the message from the diva is out and loud, we expect that the brainy beauty could only be roped in only if there is something extra ordinary to give a nod to.
