  1. Its good but a major shock to see Meera instead of Syra Sairoz – Ho Mann Jahan in Best Special Appearance category!!! I mean come on who even talks about her!

  2. Her perfomence is so weak but “jo ek baar famous ho jay us ko to saar par hi charalete hai”. So please, let new talent win too, you Will give them confidence this way. If you ONLY vote for Mahira then new talent Will just lose their confidence. Er all know Pakistan has alot of talent that we need to help bring out to out screen’s.

  3. saba qamar deserve all awards because she is besttest rockstar of the year.1000 much batter thn mahira, usky sath 2 hero wale lathean b nai then


  5. Vote for salute, make it win in at least one category let’s promote the effort of the little boy and the makers of this film to recognise such a heroic moment. Please vote for salute!! Peace ✌️
