Here's Why Pakistanis Are Still So Obsessed With Jemima Khan

By Iman Zia | 30 Jan, 2017

It’s been 15 years since Jemima Khan left Pakistan but she’s still Pakistan’s sweetheart. It wouldn’t be an overstatement to say that people in Pakistan are absolutely obsessed with her. And she’s always keen to return all that love, what with her love for Pakistan still going strong despite having left the country behind so many moons ago.

Here are 11 reasons why us Pakistanis still love Jemima so much:


1. She’s still got it at 45.

She’s a hot Tabasco sauce at this age! We’d love to know her secret to looking so good.


2. She’s a proud ‘honorary’ Pakistani at heart and isn’t afraid to show it.


3. Her Halloween costumes take the crown. 

Jemima sets major Halloween goals for all us unoriginal buffoons who slack off with the witch or pussycat look.

6. She loves dogs

Okay, this isn’t a very Pakistani thing, traditionally, but still… She’s got an enviable family of gorgeous dogs, with her latest addition being Brian the majestic snowy white Alsatian.


7. She speaks fluent Urdu

She speaks in Urdu at 2.05 minute mark in the video.


8. Her relationship with Imran Khan, after all these years, is wonderful

They parted on such good terms and it’s evident in their relationship all these years. She’ll often post nostalgic photos of Imran Khan and has continually supported him all these years.

I mean let’s face it, they’re honestly so perfect for each other.



10. She’s an avid nature lover

She’ll be horse riding one day…

And walking through gorgeous poppy fields the next.

11. And of course, she’s a political activist who never shies away from speaking for the truth

What’s more Pakistani than a politically active person? Jemima has always advocated her political stance, not only within Pakistani politics but also on an international level. She’s always campaigning for social and political causes.
