There was a time when the fans and followers of celebrities, in general, had to rely on print media portals to find out what was happening in the lives of their favorite idols. However, over the years and especially due to social media, the bridge has been narrowed and more and more celebrities are getting comfortable with the idea of taking their fans along their personal life journeys. It allows the celebrities to connect with their fans, get feedback from them as well as maintain a healthier relationship. A connection between a celebrity and their fans and followers is a two-way street, this is the reason social media has now become a necessity.
Pakistani celebrities keep sharing perfect pictures with their fans, where some are beautifully photographed and some as casually clicked to cover the happenings and important events in their lives. Although this year was not quite ideal for almost everyone all around the world, the credit definitely goes to Pakistani celebrities for playing their part well in engaging with their fans and showing them a brighter side of the picture. We have come across a lot more beautiful pictures of Pakistani celebrities this year, let’s take a look at the top 30 that gave us a reason to smile.
Here are the top 30 celebrities photos from 2020, (the list is in no particular order):
Shahid Afridi Surrounded By His Blessings
Pakistani cricket star Shahid Afridi has earned immense love and respect from his fans all over the world. However, it makes it even more special when the star himself puts in an extra effort to reciprocate the love he receives from his supporters. Although every single picture of Shahid Afridi is special and well-received the ones which include his daughters become everyone’s favorite. This year, on February 15, Shahid Afridi took it to social media to announce the arrival of his 5th daughter and it just didn’t stop there, he asked his fans to suggest him some beautiful names, which was absolutely sweet. The smiles shared by the father and his daughters are heart-warming and this definitely is one of the best pictures seen in 2020.
There is no denying the fact that Mama Mir has a significant social media presence of her own. Although she is known as Asif Raza Mir’s wife, Ahad Raza Mir’s mother, and Sajal Aly’s mother in law, she has a fanbase of her own due to her beautiful personality and generosity. On mother’s day, Ahad Raza Mir took it to social media and wished his mother by sharing this beautiful moment that the mother-son duo shared on his big day. The fact that there were very few pictures released of their wedding, this one was well-received by their fans.

This year during the lockdown, Imran Abbas shared this beautiful picture of his father and his side by side, trying to show the striking resemblance the two shared. Imran Abbas also wrote a heartfelt caption which stated that he actually wished to be like him and his father reassured that one day, he most certainly will. Well, looking at these pictures, we can totally say like father, like son.
