A group of prominent socialites, running their own businesses and juggling the chaotic demands of family life: Think this only happens in Beverly Hills? PBS Digital Studios, an American TV studio, has produced a Karachi based reality show that features the stories of the elite housewives of Karachi.
Divas of Pakistan is our desi answer to the American series “Real Housewives”
It’s a six part documentary series produced and directed by Senain Kheshgi and you can follow it on YouTube. Kheshgi is the maker of an Emmy nominated documentary called The Diplomat.
Divas Of Karachi features Nazneen Tariq, Ainee Shehzad Salim, Mohsin Sayeed and Hadia Khan. All the episodes are around eight to ten minutes long. The divas mentioned above are all some of the most prominent socialites of the city and they have established themselves as interior designers, teachers, fashion designers, entrepreneurs, philanthropists, and sometimes all of it as well.
New episodes of the series come out every Tuesday at 2pm. Till now 5 have been released. And people are eagerly waiting for the last one!
