First up: Big congratulations to super talented Pakistani-British actor/rapper Riz Ahmed for his historic Emmy win. He became the first Muslim and the first Asian man to win an acting Emmy. Ahmed beat out such heavyweights as Robert De Niro, Geoffrey Rush, Ewan McGregor and Benedict Cumberbatch in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie category for his performance in The Night Of, an HBO criminal justice miniseries. On the occasion, Riz said, “TV is in particular a global medium. People are streaming shows or watching them all around the world, so hopefully we’re going to see a globalization of the stories we’re telling and a globalization of the talent pool.” Well done in breaking down race barriers in Trump’s America!
Nationally, before the advent of Muharram, a whole week long of fashion and festivities took place in Karachi in the guise of Fashion Pakistan Week where designers showcased their latest Luxury Prêt collections. We have you covered regarding this and all the happenings and on dits of the last fortnight.
Until next time!
