'There is a right time and a certain age for marriage.'
Such is the idea we've heard most of the people in our society preach. Marry early, so you can adjust in a new family. Marry young, to safeguard your deteriorating beauty. Nevertheless, marry in and around your 20s.
However, Mahira Khan doesn't seem to agree. This winter season (or wedding season in Pakistan, as we call it), the Raees superstar collaborated with the Dhoop Kinare legend Marina Khan to refresh our memories with the concept of companionship — one that transgresses all barriers of age and time.
"I hope you all enjoy this [...] I hope we can all celebrate our hearts and the choices it makes," said the Humsafar star, as she went on to post the two-minute clip of the festivity, having us all warm and fuzzy.
"There is a line I wrote which Marina delivers: Aaj is dil ne mujhe jeenay ki ijaazat de di (today, the heart finally allowed me to live). That sums up what we wanted to say this Mashaadi," she added, as the video celebrated love and union in all its glory.
Like us, many took to appreciate the refreshing concept, admiring the simplicity of how it was done with very little words, yet, with so much ease.
The video has been directed by Shehrazade Sheikh and styled by Maha Rizvi, and the beautiful outfits were courtesy Sania Maskatiya with Ali Javeri responsible for the traditional jewellery, local brand Miaasa for the shoes.
Music for the video was done by Azaan Sami Khan.
Celebrating love, loneliness, togetherness, support and most importantly, the reversal of roles filled with courage, we can't help but surely agree, this was a beautiful concept giving us the reminder we collectively need: "celebrate choice".
