Tell us about your journey. How did you decide to pursue a career in music?

Since childhood I used to participate in every function in school college and always won. Everyone at our house was very fond of music especially Madam Noor Jahan, Abida Parveen ji and Reshma ji. I grew up listening to their songs and felt a strong connection whenever I listened to them.

What are your hobbies outside of singing?

I was very artistic since childhood. There is no artist in my family other than me. As a child I was very fond of painting. I love cooking, gardening and traveling, especially up to the northern regions of Pakistan. I like to explore the world. I want to know everything, I am curious whether it is history or science.

Has your perception of the entertainment industry in Pakistan changed in any way? Would you like to share your experience?

I have been in the industry for 10 years and I don’t think anything has changed for women here. Today A woman still has to work as hard as she used to in the past. This is not only about the industry but about the whole world. A lot of educated people are coming into the industry but there is no change. If we talk about music, the music industry is going a long way undoubtedly.

Did you have any trouble with your parents when you decided to pursue music as a career?

I believe that artists all over the world are chosen by Allah and I feel very blessed that Allah has chosen me and the most beautiful thing about being an artist is that I connect with my audience. Being an artist I consider myself very close to Allah.

What’s your favourite part about being a musician?

My mother belongs to the medical field and she did not want me to take up music at all because I am from Nankana Sahib, famous for Baba Guru Nanak. People there do not know anything about the media industry. I did not go home for two years and stayed in the hostel. Gradually, when my mother saw my progress, saw my studio and now my mother is my biggest fan.

Name any 3 music icons.

There are so many legends in Pakistan’s media industry whose work we listen now and forever because of which it will be difficult to choose three, but if I have to choose only three then Madam Noor Jahan, Reshma Ji and Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan Sahib.

What was your inspiration behind new album?

Whenever I do anything related to music, I really connect with the audience by putting myself to their place and thinking about what they are thinking and feeling. The audience is my inspiration. Four songs have been composed in different music Sufi and folk.

Any advice you have for aspiring musicians?

Whenever I go for an interview or as a judge in a music competition, I always advise them that art does not need a platform, if you are talented, learn to believe in yourself and your talent. If you have talent, it doesn’t mean you should be overconfident because learning is very important. If one wants to make a career in music, respect your seniors a lot because success will follow anyone who respects his seniors.

To succeed in a job interview, you must be able to think quickly under pressure. While some people thrive on adrenaline, it makes sense that some people find the nerves difficult. While working in the fashion industry can be exhilarating, it can also be challenging to find employment. Because it’s a cutthroat field, there will probably be a long line of applicants for any given position. As a result, it’s imperative that you succeed in getting your ideal fashion career. You should put work into developing a strong CV, an appealing portfolio, and a commitment to meticulous interview preparation.

Here are some tips for a successful fashion job interview:

Be confident and make eye contact

First impressions matter a lot. With a confident stride, a warm smile, and a good posture, enter the interview space. Even though you might be feeling anxious, try to maintain your composure and project confidence. In an interview, eye contact is extremely crucial. When speaking with your interviewer, try to keep your eyes fixed on them. People who avoid making eye contact may come out as distant and uninterested. 

Sell yourself

Keep in mind that there are probably other applicants vying for the same position, so you must make yourself stand out. Sell yourself by outlining your qualifications for the position and your enthusiasm for a career in fashion. But be careful not to overdo it or you can come across as haughty.

Be descriptive, be detailed

Detail is what interviewers want to hear. Vague responses simply won’t do. Answer questions in a descriptive manner and use personal anecdotes to support your points. Discuss your team, your goals, your accomplishments, and your abilities. Sharing specifics demonstrates your abilities and that you are knowledgeable, even if your interviewer doesn’t ask for it.

Ask memorable questions

A successful interview involves both you and the potential employer asking questions. Ask pertinent questions to your interviewer whenever possible, and don’t forget to save one at the conclusion.

Know what the next steps are, and say thank you

Find out what the next steps in the procedure are after the interview. You have the right to inquire as to whether they have other applicants waiting to be interviewed and when you can anticipate learning whether you were successful or not. Always, always thank the interviewer for their time as you wrap up the conversation. Politeness is important.

The Pakistani government banned an Oscar contender for having extremely offensive content.

Pakistan’s Oscar entry for this year, Joyland, which the government banned yesterday due to its “extremely offensive material,” is now being demanded by celebrities in Pakistan.

Joyland, directed by Saim Sadiq, was banned on Saturday by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (MoIB), which claimed that it violated the Islamic Republic of Pakistan’s societal norms.

Numerous people and famous celebrities have called for the release of the film after the notification became viral.

Sarwat Gilani, a member of the Joyland cast, criticized those ‘campaigning’ against the film who haven’t even seen it. Additionally, she urged that the MoIB reverse its decision.

Osman Khalid Butt, a well-known Pakistani actor, also tweeted in favor of the film.

Twitter users are clamouring for the release of the film using the hashtag #ReleaseJoyland, and this demand is echoed online.

See how the public responded to the Joyland ban.

The future of the company has never been less certain two weeks after Elon Musk completed his purchase of Twitter.

One of the most influential social networks in the world has fired half of its staff in the past week alone, alienated powerful advertisers, blown up key features of its product, then repeatedly launched and unlaunched other features meant to make up for it and experienced a departure of senior executives.

With additional senior departures, escalating confusion over fake verified accounts, and an unusually public censure from the US government on Thursday, the wild swings at Twitter only seemed to get worse.

It’s a startling turn of events for Musk, who paid $44 billion for the business, as well as for a platform used by some of the world’s most influential individuals, including presidents, CEOs, and the pope.

On Friday, it appeared like there might be no end to the inconvenience. Twitter has changed its position on the issue and announced that it would reintroduce a grey “Official” badge for a restricted group of accounts to help verify their identities. The choice was made as Twitter had to fight off a flood of fake verified accounts this week, some of which were posing as Nintendo, the pharmaceutical corporation Eli Lilly, former President Donald Trump, and others. These accounts came about because of Musk’s hasty decision to offer a blue check mark to any account user willing to pay $8 a month, without asking any questions, as he searches for new ways to monetize the platform.

Just two days after its formal launch, that premium subscription service was also abruptly terminated on Friday. The only place the add-on had been made available was in the Twitter iOS app, where the menu option to sign up for Twitter Blue had previously been present. When the corporation might reinstate the offering was unclear at first.

The grey “Official” label has come to symbolize the recent whiplash that customers, staff members, and marketers have gone through.

Musk abruptly tweeted that he had “killed” the feature, requiring colleagues to explain the reversal. The grey badges, which were designed to assist users to distinguish between authentic celebrity and sponsored accounts and accounts that had only paid for a blue check mark, went live on Wednesday.
