Aima calls cheating accusations a cry for money and followers

Published

on


On September 16, singer Aima Baig confirmed her split with ex-fiance actor Shahbaz Shigri in an Instagram post that was soon deleted. Few days later, in a surprising turn of events, she was accused of cheating on Shigri with filmmaker Qes Ahmed by British supermodel Taloulah Mair.

After two days of complete silence by the singer and brutal trolling on the internet about the same, the Baazi singer finally took to Instagram to address the controversy surrounding her personal life. Her note doesn’t give a clear answer to whether the accusations levelled against her are true or not, she does however say that people should check the “authenticity” of the proof provided and not believe in half-baked stories posted for “money” and “followers.”

Bol liya aap sab nay? Karlia bully ya abhi bhi or thora rehta ha to wo bhi karlain. [Have you all said your peace? Have you bullied me enough or have you still got some more left to do, go ahead and do it.] Without even knowing the entire truth. Ab main thora sa kuch boloun [now can I say a little something]?” she asked in a long note penned in a series of Instagram stories posted on Wednesday evening.

Referring to her breakup announcement with Shigri, she added, “Although I did leave a very respectful statement to put an end to this whole situation. But some people want to stay [quiet because] they know how many more ugly things would come out, not just about them, but about their families too. I still want to keep up with that respect that I gave to these people. In fact to this one person and family because ‘that is not how my upbringing is.’”

The 27-year-old went on in a rather cryptic manner, “I don’t and can’t make fun of people who are deceased or how they used their significant other and then acted as if they are the victim. People who know this person personally have nothing to say about this matter since they knew the truth way before y’all got aware of it. And trust me they know why it happened,” she wrote.

‘Straight-up bullying’

“Whatever happened, I’ve been going through some major trauma, depression right now because people don’t know what actually happened. And these extras who just want some followers and money, please give them that so they can move on with their lives,” she said, perhaps referring to Mair.

In Baig’s opinion, the whole situation is “straight up bullying and targeting.” She said what bothered her during these past few days was how her fans and people on the internet believed accusations “by some random people who are only looking for a few followers without even knowing the actual truth and the real story behind it?”

In her next story, she asked people for recommendations for a “good doctor” along with some money for she needs to send it to the person spreading controversies about her. Referring directly to the videos posted by Mair, she alleged that the model “knowingly bleep[ed] certain words and only posted half the video.” She also claimed she was being “told what to say in those videos over texts and even her boyfriend [Ahmed] knows that.”

‘Right to dignity is a human right’

In her last story, she urged people to validate the “proofs” they see on the internet before acting as judges. “The right to dignity is a human right. Since internet users act as jury, you are entitled to have your opinion but I implore you to make sure that it is guided by a holistic perspective of the narrative and the validity and authenticity of the ‘proof’ presented otherwise no woman or man will be safe from slander and harassment. It should not be easy to demean women and target them to avenge insurmountable issues with your own partner,” she said.

The Do Bol singer stated that she’ll bounce back from this mess with more music. “ I have gone through enough in life to be strong enough to withstand this. I will bounce back with the only thing I extend to the world: my music.”

Concluding, she asked fans to show some empathy for her and realise the tough time she is going through. She also expressed her concern about how sharing ‘dirty laundry’ without authentic proof can enable a toxic environment for women online. “It is me today, it can be you tomorrow. Clearly, this isn’t an easy time for me. Take a moment to put yourselves in my shoes, I have never claimed to be perfect but that doesn’t mean I am what I’m being portrayed to be. Public figures are also human beings, please remember that,” she said.

Mahira, Frieha among others condemn Sara Bibi’s brutal murder

Published

Senior journalist Ayaz Amir’s daughter-in-law, Sara Bibi, was allegedly murdered in Islamabad’s Chak Shehzad suburb, police said on Friday. The 37-year-old was living at a farmhouse in the area where she was found dead Friday morning. Reportedly, she was murdered with a dumbbell and her husband, Shah Nawaz, is the prime suspect in the case.

The news shook celebrities and Twitter to the core, where many expressed shock and anger. “How long before we get any sort of justice for any woman who has been killed at the hands of rage and privilege. Another hashtag. Another long wait for justice. Justice delayed is justice denied,” Mahira Khan tweeted. 

“No country for women!” PR mogul Frieha Altaf wrote. “Another daughter-in-law, another Noor. The cases that are high profile make it to Twitter trends. The 12-year-old raped/hung just gets a column on page 5 and yet the horror of domestic abuse, misogynistic behaviour and harassment doesn’t stop.”

Zunaira Inam Khan commented, “Another day, another woman lost to senseless violence. Such a terrible shame. When will be able to stop having to change the name at the end of the “justice for…” hashtag? Also, please stop sharing the pictures of the murder victim. Let her have dignity in death.”

Twitter users, too, condemned Sara’s brutal murder. 

Police and investigation teams reached the crime scene and the journalist’s son was arrested after earlier fleeing from the crime scene. However, the police have said that the FIR will be registered after an investigation has been conducted. “The incident is being investigated,” a police spokesperson said while reserving further comments.

Emraan Hashmi can’t wait for Humaima Malick’s performance as Daro

Actor Humaima Malick recently shared her fiery look from the upcoming Fawad Khan-starrer, The Legend of Maula Jatt, scheduled for release on October 13, 2022.

The Bol star can be seen clad in black shalwar kameez, with a red dupatta draped over her shoulder and dark kohl eyes. Her bold look is accentuated by the knife in her hand. Humaima garnered massive praise for her unique look in the Bilal Lashari directorial. And from of course across the border too!

Indian actor Emraan Hashmi, who has previously worked with the star in the 2014 Bollywood film Raja Natwarlal, praised her look on Instagram. “Love the look Humaima. Looking forward to your stellar performance,” he commented on her post, alongside a thumbs-up emoji.

Earlier, Mahira Khan, who also stars in The Legend of Maula Jatt, received ample love for the film’s poster she revealed of herself on Instagram. The likes of Asim Raza, Sohai Ali Abro, Sanam Saeed, Sanam Jung, Ayesha Omar, Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy, Nabeel Qureshi and Imran Abbas among others took to social media and commented on her post.  

However, there was one comment that caught everyone’s attention and it was from Bollywood heartthrob Hrithik Roshan. The War star took to Mahira’s Instagram post and penned, “Love this.”

Humaima has long faced criticism regarding her choice of agreeing to bold characters and intimate scenes, particularly referring to her Bollywood stint. Addressing the hatred earlier, she said, “I made myself strong with the thought that ‘talent has no religion’. It was just a role.” While the Akbari Asghari star understands how kissing on-screen hurt her fans’ sentiments, she does not appreciate the harsh comments hurled at her for essaying the role of a bar dancer in Raja Natwarlal. 

“There was a lot of hatred for me when I performed the role of a bar dancer. I did a lot of hard work to play this role as this culture is not there in Pakistan. My director took me to various bars and I observed the body language of those dancers. It’s a very tough job they are doing and I have immense respect for them,” she said, explaining the efforts that went behind the role.

Ahsan on artists being criticised for ‘not helping flood victims’

Published

Actor Ahsan Khan has something to say about the ongoing criticism on actors flying out of the country for an award show in time of a national emergency. 

“It goes without saying that all efforts in personal and professional capacity have been ongoing and shall continue towards the flood relief drive. A percentage of my hosting here will also go towards the same flood relief,” the Udaari star shared in a statement. 

He added, “However, I want to clearly state that we need to understand and start treating people’s professions with the same respect that is bestowed upon other industries. We aren’t questioning why a textile person or any other segment is going to work during the tragic situation in our country, yet actors are being asked why they are attending the event. Think about that for a second. Don’t judge a book by its cover.”

Previously, several artists including Ushna Shah addressed the matter. “It’s quite disconcerting to read the criticism for those of us who have come to Toronto to attend the award show. It is imperative that those affected by the floods know that they are not forgotten and we are working on the channels to raise funds through our industry,” the Habs actor wrote in a descriptive note. 

She added, “I can speak for myself and I am sure many other artists when I say that we have contributed to the relief funds (privately) and continue to do so. We are also partaking in auctions and fundraisers here for the victims, tickets for which have been sold out. We are trying to do our best we can with the platforms we have. I look forward to returning to Pakistan and to continue my part, as the rehabilitation of our fellow citizens after their horrific disaster is our collective responsibility.”
