Regardless of a burgeoning entertainment industry, it is quite ordinary for Pakistani artists to have to fend for themselves, doesn’t any issue that what their input to the country. There are numerous artists who devoted their lives to amuse Pakistan but are currently hardly surviving. In recent times, we have observed the news of actor Matloob ur Rehman — mostly recognized as Zakoota from Ainak Wala Jin — working hard to endure and got much attraction from the media and fans of the well-known show. After listening to Rehman’s painful story provoked sports journalist and cricket statistician Mazher Arshad to set up a fund to help him. At the present, Ajlal Bukhari — who performed as a child star on the PTV hit drama — has established an organization named Save My Star to assist others with same destiny, concentrating on sports and entertainment personalities merely.

Bukhari exposed in an interview that his donations will work together with the Aasra Welfare Society, which was set up in 2006, and supply healthcare and education-related charges for the children of the chosen people. Aasra’s Chairman Qavi Khan, President Sohail Ahmed Azizi and General Secretary Asim Bukhari are part of the board. Bukhari stated that “The project is very much in the initial stages. We are planning to make it membership-based and hold fundraisers and charity dinners to collect the funds,”

Though he is the just single supervision Save My Star up until now, Bukhari stays concentrated on his aims. He told that “What is important is how those in need can approach the organization for support,” he further added that “The stars will have to write an application to Aasra and we will check their backgrounds, difficulties, and their respective cases, overall. Once they qualify, we shall start the process of delivering whatever help they require.”

The opting procedure relies upon every individual case as a few artists require healthcare or education whereas others are working hard to get essential needs of life. He said “As I mentioned earlier, each case will be different. We will support the stars according to their needs. There is no quota system on the amount of support.”

Bearing in mind how narratives similar to that of Rehman’s are widespread, one surprises whose responsibility it is to ease the stars’ problems. A lot of times, it is the celebrities themselves who bring upon problems because of poor judgment. Bukhari is the view that this type of self-destruction is widespread to theater artists especially. He said “I understand where this perception comes from and agree that it is often one’s own fault,” he continued “Nonetheless, there are many who deserve to be supported; many who have done everything they can to create a sound future for their children but received no assistance from the government. They served Pakistan and should be taken care of.”
