Famed Pakistani TV show host Shaista Lodhi in a recent interview with local publication claimed that she set the wedding trend on morning shows and she as no regret about it.
“I started off the trend for weddings on shows, I’m the culprit. But then it all went overboard. Even in a wedding-centric show, channels can abide by certain limits but that rarely happens,” she said. “But many times before, while enduring long wedding ceremonies on TV, I would wonder to myself what I was doing,” she said.
Shaista also said that she always felt an added pressure on her and her team to incur more ratings. “Often, as hosts, we end up negating our own personalities. We don’t want to wear heavily embellished clothes and slather on make-up early in the morning and shout and yell through a wedding ceremony. I’m a doctor and when I would sit next to a guest who would declare that depression could be cured by eating okra, I would cringe within,” she said. Shaista said that she ‘got tired of it a long time ago’ but could not quit as she was single mother who had bills to pay. “Now that I could leave the business, I immediately did so,” she said.
