    @Saba Chaudry…! Though your article serves the appetite for a satirical humor but misses the point that Dubai or any other country is bestowed with such land marks and the habits that you depict in your articles are not personal and limited to Pakistani celebrities but accustomed to travelers in general. As for posting a selfie or group photo with and landmark representing the epitome skill of shrewd engineering (i.e Burj Al-khalifa is bound to happen) as such beauties and sights are not what meets the eye everyday….! just so you know…!Recommend

    What a retarded article but oh wait…this is ET blogs.
    Everyone else who travels to Dubai does almost the same things and every celebrity with a social media account is posting such stuff not just the ones from Pakistan.
    Burj Khalifa is the biggest attraction in Dubai now so what else are the supposed to take a picture with? The sand?Recommend

  • Saba Chaudry

    We all know there’s nothing new in here. People all over the world do these things and it’s just a mere exaggeration for people who like humor.Recommend

  • Saba Chaudry

    If you’re looking for death, money laundering and a myriad of other problems that the nation is currently facing, perhaps you shouldn’t have clicked on a satirical post? There’s plenty of articles on said topics on this forum, try reading those and you might just be satisfied. Peace. :)Recommend

    Back in my golden days, when I used to be a celebrity, but then due to some raunchy scandals and my personal struggles I was forced to quit the industry, we actually used to do same things on set. I still remember the days when my coworkers and I would be flown in first class to Dubai via the then in demand PIA, ooh those were some lovely memories.I am now old and obese and living in the shadows but hope to make a good comeback someday if and only if a good script comes my way. And yes thats one thing I’d like to agree with that mullah of an excuse, hamza ali abbasi, that these bold item numbers, is not something a woman of charm and grace like me can commit do. And thats precisely why I had to turn so many offers down u know.Recommend
