Chandigarh: Born to an African father and a Pakistani mother meant that Mathira Khan had an inherently daring attitude with sharp facial features, a combination very uncommon in conservative Pakistan. Perhaps, it is because of this broad-mindedness that Mathira is not afraid to court controversies at a time when her homeland grapples with retrogressive ideologies which sometimes forbid even interaction between different sexes in public, leave alone flaunting feminism.
Be it shedding clothes for modelling assignments or uploading naked picture on the internet, Mathira has broken all ceilings of feminism which have bounded the Pakistani women. She is all set to venture into another unchartered territory this year as she would become the first woman to feature in an item song in a Pakistani movie. Not only Pakistan, she has also caught the fancy of producers in India and will feature in an item song in a Punjabi flick ‘Young Malang’.
When asked if all the negative publicity which surround her sometimes ever fear her, she replies, “It is all about perception. My pictures and all that I do may appear positive to some and negative to others. But I take all the publicity in positive light.”
