  • Can we get beyond who lost weight and what people wear? All these actors have done much more they can be appreciated for, stop judging people for what they wear and how much they gain or lose!

  • Instead of elder, it should have been senior.
    Second anyone’s especially celebrity’s weight loss should be an inspiration for everyone. Nobody should be body shamed but people should not feel comfortable being fat. Obesity comes with baggage of diseases and it is considered disease itself.

  • I do not know about weight, but the acting of Nida Mumtaz & Ismat Zaidi is not at all convincing in their roles….they have this monotonous tone, and fixed expressions. Pardon me if I you think am wrong, because I have not watched their old dramas, only commenting on the dramas they are in the last few years.
