When it comes to sartorial choices or making fashion statements, Lollywood divas know how to grab attention but sometimes, these "statements" backfire leading to public scrutiny. Known for her 'the heart wants what it wants' energy, the Pakistani television industry's promising actress, Mehar Bano, has done it all and never paid heed to trolls or unsolicited critics.

Having won an award at the Venice Film Festival for her impeccable acting prowess in Darling, the chances of Meher Bano responding to trolls are slim as she is busy making history and soaring high, but that doesn't stop social media users from lambasting the Mere Paas Tum Ho famed actress for her lifestyle choices. 

Meher Bano, who recently turned 29 years old, took to Instagram and shared aesthetically pleasing pictures from her birthday bash. While the Uff Yeh Mohabbat diva looked like an angel in white, many of her followers felt that she should have thought twice before posting such bold pictures.

The trolling started when Bano who was donning a white cape sleeve solid crop top paired with a maxi denim skirt with a front slit surfaced on the internet, much to the dismay of her fans. The virtual moral police couldn't help but slam the actress for not respecting the holy month of Ramadan, and for wearing body-hugging clothes.

While Ayesha Omar was all heart eyes for the gorgeous diva, social media users heavily criticized Meher Bano for her bold choices calling her "Poor people's Urfi." 

On the work front, Meher Bano was recently seen in Khuda Aur Muhabbat 3, Meray Humnasheen, Midsummer Chaos, Qatil Haseenaon Ke Naam, and London Nahi Jaunga.

Rupee falls below 290 against US dollar in interbank market

KARACHI – The Pakistani rupee on Tuesday continued its ascent, trading at less than Rs290 against the US dollar in the morning interbank market, primarily due to stringent measures in the financial sector.

The US dollar was valued at Rs289.78 around 9:48 am, as reported by the Forex Association of Pakistan, marking a decrease of Rs1.18 from the previous day’s closing rate of Rs290.86.

This ongoing rise in the value of the rupee follows the crackdown on illegal dollar trading initiated earlier this month, with strong support from the military.

In the open market, the rupee also made gains against the dollar, trading at Rs292 compared to the previous day’s rate of Rs293, according to the Exchange Companies Association of Pakistan.

Saad Bin Naseer, the director of the financial services platform Mettis Global, noted that this marked the 16th consecutive day of appreciation for the PKR, amounting to nearly a 6% increase.

Naseer attributed this surge primarily to administrative measures, stating that it seems the government’s crackdown on speculative elements contributing to rupee depreciation is having an effect.

He also suggested that if this trend persists and the Afghan border remains closed, the rupee could continue to appreciate in the future. However, he emphasized the importance of attracting foreign direct investment (FDI) into export-oriented sectors for long-term stability.
