The entertainment industry is always up to something; whether big or small, the creative minds in the industry are always churning new ideas. The Pakistani cinema though might be in its infancy, but the filmmakers and actors are constantly trying to be the first ones to bring forth promising projects and last week witnessed a lot of firsts (including PSL).
Here are a few noteworthy achievements:
1) Fawad Khan’s first collaboration with PSL
After a hiatus of almost 9 years from singing as a frontman, (the singer sang Pepsi Battle of the Bands introductory and finale song) Fawad Khan re-routed from rock music and sung the pop anthem of Pakistan Super League 2019, Khel Deewano Ka. Owing to the singer-turned-actor’s rockstar persona, the anthem received mixed reviews after its release. However, this was Fawad’s first collaboration with PSL (as a singer) and his long overdue live performance for an audience.
2) Mehwish Hayat’s first concert

What an amazing audience! I love you All ! ?? Special Thanks to my band members @emadrahman.er #Mannu #ShamsulArifeen #Kashifperc #MasoodMahmood #MehwishHayat #Honor8c #Lahore
Talking about firsts, we are not oblivious to the fact that Mehwish Hayat is not only a brilliant actor but a promising singer as well. After her Coke Studio debut, Mehwish has garnered appreciation for hr melodious voice. She recently sang the title track of her first web series Enaaya and now she had the chance to perform for a live audience for a brand’s promotional event. The Punjab Nahi Jaungi star’s first concert was a massive hit.
3) Nescafé Basement first all kids band
Season 5 of Nescafé Basement is taking the internet by storm for all the right reasons. If debuting a child singer or drummer wasn’t enough, the new episode features an all kids band; from vocals to drums, keyboards, tabla, dhol and more, the little musicians have won the hearts of listeners instantly. Recreating Fakhr-e-Alam’s Pyaar Diyan Gallan, the first all kids band of Pakistan is not only adorable but an immensely talented lot.
4) Iman Ali’s pre-wedding festivities
Actor Feroze Khan shared a photo from Pakistani diva and former model Iman Aly’s dholki as she prepares to tie the knot with long-time beau Babar Bhatti. Earlier this year, the news was confirmed when Iman shared that the couple are getting married soon.
5) Sania Maskatiya makes it to NYFW, again
After presenting her luxury-prét collection at the world’s most coveted fashion platform in 2018, Pakistan’s renowned fashion designer Sania Maskatiya was back at the New York Fashion Week to present an all-new collection of western ensembles. Sania is the first Pakistani designer to be presenting her collection at NYFW (for the second time).
