Attention Everyone: We Just Found Pakistan's Very Own “Padmavati”

By Iman Zia | 21 Nov, 2017

After ‘Verna’ went through a whirlwind of being pronounced as banned in Pakistan, a similar uprising was sprouting across the border in India with Bollywood film ‘Padmavati,’ starring Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor, and Ranveer Singh. While ‘Verna’ barely made the cut, ‘Padmavati’ has catapulted the protagonists into the center of controversy. So to just take a step back from all these dire times, we thought we’d search our own little country for ‘Padmavati…’ and we were pleasantly surprised on what we stumbled upon! Actress Sadia Khan has proven herself worthy of the role! (Please don’t hate).


Sadia Khan has channeled her inner ‘Padmavati,’ for a recent jewelry shoot

The actress posted a picture on her Instagram, whereby she looked incredibly ethereal, draped in the finest jewels – looking incredibly ‘Padmavati’-esque we say! The look was complete to perfection with an intricate matha patti, a delicately beaded nath, and a pearl mala.


And the startling resemblance between Sadia and Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone is incredibly uncanny

Deepika’s look has gathered tremendous attraction, with her look serving as sole inspiration for shaadi season.

Honestly, though, Sadia Khan is so gorgeous and incredibly underrated – the actress looks absolutely divine in traditional wear
