Pakistani-Zimbabwean model and actress Mathira clarified in Shahveer Jafry’s podcast that late Salman Taseer helped her when there were calls from Pemra for banning her.

She continues to disclose that did not even know half of the time what the callers would say to her and the off camera team will write a response on chalk boards which she will deliver. Salman Taseer stood for her in many legal and political ways to make let her continue in showbiz.

Pakistan has seen gigantic figures in politics. You can agree or disagree with their policies but their stories will live on and they will be remembered from time to time. Late Salman Taseer is such a figure. He was murdered back in 2011 and left a legacy of businesses and tolerance behind. He served as the governor of Punjab back in the day.

Mathira stepped in her career at a very young age. She also faced a language barrier at the time. Some of the most controversial clips of that time originated from her show. 

Mathira was the sole breadwinner of her house back then and the calls for her ban were distressing. She revealed that Salman Taseer helped her in those times. He handled the legal battle with PEMRA and that is how she was able to keep her job.
