lets take a look back to 2018
We know one thing without a doubt: 2018 was the year in which a ton occurred – truly A LOT.
2018 saw some gigantic names of media outlets abandon us and endless big name weddings occur. Indeed, even the #MeToo development, which started in Hollywood a year ago, at last advanced toward India and Pakistan – but on a lower scale. These set the point of reference for a great deal of things in the business and in the public eye. In any case, in the event that you consider it, what might have occurred if the circumstances were unique? Keep things under control!
If ‘PadMan’ was released in Pakistan?
One of Akshay Kumar’s greatest movies PadMan was discharged over the world toward the beginning of 2018 – with the exception of in Pakistan. Individuals from the Punjab Film Censor Board declined to watch the film through and through so couldn’t issue a freedom authentication to it. As indicated by them, it had “forbidden” subjects, for example, feminine cycle… which is a typical, hormonal process that goes on in a ladies’ body that readies her for pregnancy… TABOO?!
In any case, not just that: The individuals from the blue pencil sheets likewise censured nearby film wholesalers who had obtained rights to PadMan, expressing that it was “demolishing Islamic conventions, history and culture.”
What might have occurred if PadMan had not been prohibited? First of all, maybe ladies the nation over would not need to stow away sterile napkins in dark colored paper packs at whatever point they went out to buy a few. This would enable them to feel sure as well as empower a progressively liberal mentality since the monthly cycle is common and nothing to be embarrassed about. All things considered, it just implies that your belly is preparing to bring another life into this world. No major ordeal, isn’t that so? It most likely would have been on the off chance that it was men who got it…
What if Thanos didn’t wipe off half of humanity?
Marvel Avengers: Infinity War hit screens over the world back in April. Fans who rushed to the films to see their most loved legends spare the world saw the adversary Thanos wipe off a portion of humankind at the snap of his fingers.
What might have occurred in the event that he hadn’t done as such, however? Obviously, a lot of fans would not have been grief-stricken. Winter Soldier Bucky would even now be alive, alongside fan most loved Black Panther and the spirit pounding Spiderman would keep on enchanting us with his charming cleverness. Who knows, possibly Captain America would, in any case, have his whiskers in Avengers: Endgame and Tony Stark would not need to kick the bucket in space.
If Meesha Shafi hadn’t called out sexual harassment?
After #MeToo kicked up a tempest in Hollywood a year ago, the development made it’s an approach to Pakistan. Vocalist Meesha Shafi took to Twitter and announced Ali Zafar had explicitly badgering on numerous occasions. A fight in court at that point began between the two wherein Zafar denied every single such case and documented a criticism suit against Shafi.
While the court is yet to give a decision looking into it, Shafi’s allegations helped ladies over our nation to open up about their own horrendous encounters of being bugged.
However, what might have occurred if Shafi had never approached? Ladies crosswise over Pakistan would in any case be getting exposed to lewd behavior. Gracious, pause… despite everything they are.
If Humayun Saeed wasn’t the lead in ‘Jawani Phir Nahi Ani 2?
On numerous occasions, Humayun Saeed steers as the main legend of nearby movies. The 47-year-old, apparently imperishable on-screen character wowed swarms with his execution in Jawani Phir Nahi Ani in 2015, trailed by Bin Roye that year and Yalghaar and Punjab Nahi Jaungi in 2017. At that point the performing artist showed up as the lead in the continuation of Jawani Phir Nahi Ani 2, romancing Kubra Khan.
While there is nothing amiss with that, what might have occurred if, for a change, he was not given a role as the lead? Truly, the film was delivered under Saeed’s generation standard and that. In any case, imagine a scenario in which he had passed the mantle on to a more youthful star.
To be reasonable, Jawani Phir Nahi Ani 2 would most likely not have fared too in the cinematic world as it did. As a rule, spin-offs will in general fail to meet expectations, a worry that appeared to trouble Saeed before the arrival of the film too. In any case, Jawani Phir Nahi Ani 2 figured out how to outperform everything.
While Saeed is incompletely to thank for that, the credit ought to be expected ly given to the various stars of the film also, particularly Ahmed Ali Butt. Which makes one wonder: Can we please have him play the lead in a conceivable third portion? Considering the establishment is currently fruitful around the world, what about having remain solitary stories for every one of the characters, particularly to Hamza Ali Abbasi’s character Saif.
If Strings continued to produce ‘Coke Studio?
Faisal Kapadia and Bilal Maqsood had been delivering Coke Studio as far back as Rohail Hyatt ventured down in 2013. Notwithstanding, their work was not cherished by numerous individuals the nation over. At that point the couple chose to give over control to another person.
This year, performer Zohaib Kazi and Ali Hamza – one portion of Noori – assumed control as makers. Fans were overjoyed that they would at last get the chance to hear some out great music yet lamentably, Coke Studio appeared to have different plans…
Indeed, even Kazi and Hamza neglected to leave a check with Coke Studio 11. That makes us ponder, what might have occurred if Strings was still on board? They’d presumably invest the greater part of their energy endeavoring to legitimize Momina Mustehsan and Ahad Raza Mir’s Ko Korina to the general population, which we know was… well, allows just not discuss it. Hawa by the first vocalist Hassan Jahangir and Gul Panrra, would have presumably kicked the bucket a more regrettable demise – in the event that it didn’t as of now do as such. While Strings creates pivotal numbers, considerably more so with their most recent collection 30, it’s their Coke Studio tracks which have, as a rule, neglected to inspire.
If Junoon didn’t reunite?
2018 additionally observed the greatest musical gang of Pakistan, at last, rejoin in the wake of 13 difficult years. Ali Azmat and Salman Ahmed appeared to have settled their issues and returned for “the purpose of their fans” and performed together on December 25. In any case, what might have occurred on the off chance that they hadn’t?
Fans would even now be weeping for them to rejoin. However, Azmat and Ahmed would proceed with their lives, – the previous chipping away at his music while the last tweeting strange things which would not be comprehended by many.
With everything taken into account, 2018 was loaded with circumstances that could most likely have been dealt with better. Or if nothing else, helped shape the nation and society towards something great. However, hello, for what reason do that when you face all the correct things, isn’t that so? Expedite it 2019. Yet, simply please make a special effort to be somewhat more tolerant than 2018…
