Huma Nasr Views on Marriage 

Talking about the show Nasr said, “I am pleased to announce the great show “Shaadi Kay Laddoo”. Weddings are always popular around the world, more so in Pakistan. I have designed this show and content which focuses on discussing marriages with its various aspects in order to help couples, whether newly-wed or old, those looking to get married, or those who are happy with their single status. I intend to take the show internationally and want to connect and highlight couples across the globe. Our discussions are meant to strengthen relationships between spouses the world over, as human emotions are the same regardless of caste, class or creed.”

Nasr also extended an invitation to help her cause, SHAADI BACHAO, by donating. This support group will work with mental health professionals to concentrate on the shaadi bachao programme. This will be a show-specific Exclusive Edition Session. Its earnings will be distributed to deserving parties.
