Indian actors Gurfateh Singh Pirzada and Mehreen Pirzada visit Kartarpur

Gurfateh Singh Pirzada is an Indian actor and model who has worked in Punjabi, Tamil, and Telugu films. He made his debut in the Punjabi film industry with the movie Rabb Da Radio in 2017. 

Mehreen Pirzada is an Indian actress who mainly works in Telugu and Tamil films. She made her acting debut in the Telugu film Krishna Gaadi Veera Prema Gaadha in 2016.

During their recent trip to Kartarpur in Pakistan, both actors were spotted visiting the Gurudwara along with fashion model Mehreen Syed. The Gurudwara, a place of immense significance to the Sikh community, holds a special place in the hearts of many.

Eager to share their experiences with their fans and followers, the actors took to their Instagram handles to post a plethora of photos and videos documenting their visit. From candid shots of the serene surroundings to glimpses of the intricate architecture of the Gurudwara, the posts offered a unique and intimate look into their journey. The actors' posts were met with an outpouring of appreciation and admiration from their fans, who were thrilled to see them experiencing the rich culture and traditions of the region.

It was heartwarming to see the actors paying their respects and immersing themselves in the local culture, which is a testament to their appreciation for the people and customs of the area. Their visit to the Gurudwara serves as a reminder of the importance of religious tolerance and understanding, as it brings people of all faiths together in a spirit of peace and harmony.

For the unversed, a gurdwara is a place of worship for followers of the Sikh faith. It is not just a place of worship but also serves as a centre for the Sikh community to gather, learn, and engage in social activities. They are an essential part of Sikhism, serving as a place of worship, community, education, equality, and humanitarian service.

On the work front, Gurfateh has also appeared in films like Yaaran Da Katchup and Golak Bugni Bank Te Batua. Meanwhile, Pirzada has appeared in films like "Mahanubhavudu" and "F2 – Fun and Frustration."

Rupee gains massive recovery against US dollar after SBP relaxes rules for banks

KARACHI – The Pakistani rupee experienced a significant surge in its value in the open market against the dollar.

This surge came after a recent directive from the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP), allowing banks to purchase dollars at the interbank market rate for international card payments. The objective of this move was to narrow the exchange rate gap between the official and informal markets.

According to the Exchange Companies Association of Pakistan, the currency market witnessed the dollar being traded at Rs298, compared to its previous day’s closing rate of 311.

The SBP’s decision was influenced by the International Monetary Fund’s demand for Pakistan to stabilize its currency market before resuming a $6.5 billion bailout program.

In a circular, the central bank stated, “In response to the feedback received from various stakeholders, Authorized Dealers are now permitted to buy USD from the Interbank market to settle card-based cross border transactions with international payment schemes (IPS).”

Market analysts had predicted a decline in the value of the rupee following the implementation of these new guidelines.

Zafar Paracha, the General Secretary of the ECAP, expressed that the SBP’s decision was timely and appropriate. He anticipated that it would lead to a decrease of 20 to 25 rupees in the open market currency rate. Paracha also noted that aligning the rates in the official and informal markets would bolster remittance inflows.

Pracha further emphasized that significant disparities in rates between the official and informal markets encourage transactions outside of the official banking system.
