Nida Yasir’s morning present has typically made headlines, and as a rule, it’s the host’s potential to generate content material that leaves the viewers in a sure bewilderment they can’t precisely fathom.
At a time the place social distancing is pressured upon and strict measures are being taken by authorities as a consequence of coronavirus fears, Yasir’s present hosts a make-up competitors.
Aired on 16 March, the episode begins by acknowledging that in the course of the lethal ongoing pandemic, the federal government has informed everybody to “stay far far away” from each other – but, even “in this situation”, they’ve managed to name beauticians “from all over the country to display their craft”.

Accompanying Yasir is Kashif from Kashee’s who too, chooses one of many fashions from the 10 Snow Whites that stroll onto the units of the present.
If there’s one factor constant in Good Morning Pakistan, it’s that there isn’t a subtlety in expressing the crew’s obsession with typical magnificence requirements. Every woman is frail, delicate and clearly white.
The episode unfolds because the fashions and contestants are available shut contact with each other.
Problem two makes crew members stuff meals within the make-up artists faces whereas they work, and Yasir laughs it off when participant Shakeela from Khanewal refuses to eat anymore saying she’s affected by a cough.
“Khansi horai hai tou mask lagaein,” (you possibly can placed on a masks should you’re affected by a cough) she casually grins.
Clearly, there isn’t a set protocol, no prior medical screening, and amidst a horrible outbreak, no civic duty in direction of different residents.
Perhaps Nida Yasir thinks it is okay to show 1000’s to a lethal virus since at the very least one winner is getting an Imtiaz Grocery store cheque and a few Kashee’s make-up. Looks as if a superb commerce, proper?
