To while away the time to your iftari, we bring you a bumper issue featuring the stars of not one, but two Eid film releases. International actress/model Armeena Rana Khan, who stars in the much awaited big budget war epic Yalghaar, is more than just a pretty face. In the pages of this issue, we find out she has been taking Mixed Martial Arts to prepare for an upcoming film role, plus she is a budding property tycoon concentrating on the British housing market. Then, we have Daanish Taimoor and Sana Javed who star in Mehrunisa V Lub U, a romcom with a social message. The romantic lead pair has great chemistry together and also seems comfortable and friendly with each other, which comes across in their feature. We also have TV actress Mansha Pasha who is about to make her film debut in a rapid fire dialogue that brings out her warm personality.

This issue’s Memorable Romance is about billionaire Anil Ambani and his ex-Bollywood star wife Tina Munim. Their path to true love and conjugal bliss was a rocky one as his traditional Gujarati parents did not initially approve of the actress. Anil knew what he wanted and persevered in winning their approval. He then swept her off her feet to a happily ever after plush life replete with yachts, private jets and the most fabulous jewels. It’s quite a story!
