2016 has been a great year for our entertainment industries. Just like every year, we witnessed amazing drama serial and not to forget how our film industry also flourished with the likes of Bin Roye, Janaan and Ye Jawani Phir Nahi Aani making their mark.
Amidst the amazing she has had, Pakistan’s gorgeous Mahira Khan faced a lot of trouble and negative remarks after India-Pakistan tension hit the roof. Since she starred opposite Shah Rukh Khan for her debut movie in India, Raees, Mahira has heard a lot of criticism from both sides of the border. However, we all know that she unstoppable and she will continue doing what she does the best – winning everyone’s hearts.
Mahira Khan has been named as Asia’s 9th sexiest woman by Eastern Eye, a coveted British publication. The list is filled with a number of Indians, with Deepika Padukone sitting gracefully (and fully deserved) on the 1st spot, followed by Priyanka Chopra on the 2nd and Nia Sharma on the 3rd spot.
Mahira Khan was above the Indian superstars including Kareena Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Aishwarya Rai and many more.
However, there wasn’t just one Pakistani who made it to the list – another Khan has been voted in this 50 sexiest Asian women list and it happens to be the new sweetheart of Pakistanis, Armeena Khan!
What a year it has been for Armeena Khan. From making her successful debut in Janaan to winning Women’s Empowerment Award by the Pakistan Achievements Awards, Armeena Khan has been the buzz of Pakistan’s entertainment industry.
After her amazing performance as a supporting character in HUM TV’s film-turned-drama Bin Roye and in Muhabbat Ab Nahi Hogi, Armeena got the lead character role in Janaan which she totally pulled off by her energetic and entertaining performance. However, this is just the start for the Canadian-Pakistani actress.
Armeena has been awarded the honor of being in the top 50 sexiest Asian women by Eastern Eye. Here’s what the founder of the list Asjad Nazir has to say on Armeena Khan’s presence in the list:
“The Biggest Breakout Star Of Pakistani Cinema This Year Was Armeena Rana Khan, Who Followed Up A Successful 2015 With An Even Greater 2016. With Her Starring Role In Hit Film Janaan, The Strikingly Beautiful Actress Helped Pakistani Cinema Cross New Frontiers Internationally And Form Strong Connections With New Audiences. One Of The Highest New Entries In The List, She Is A Star Who Will Shine Even Brighter In 2017.”
Here’s to hoping these two beautiful ladies bring more awards back home!
