A sari wearing cross dressing Pakistani late night TV host! Also, starting to make a spalsh in India!
So a woman cannot walk the streets unveiled in Pakistan, and public homosexuality is a dangerous proposition in both countries, but a drag queen can host a serious TV Show?
The Begum, as she’s known — the Urdu equivalent of Lady — has hosted a long list of Pakistan’s most prominent politicians, artists, performers and activists in a dizzying interview style that jumps between hard talk and a chatty tête-à-tête. In less than two years, the show has become a smash success.
And The Begum isn’t shy. She daringly brings together guests who would rarely be seen together. In one episode, she hosted the then-mayor of Karachi, Naimatullah Khan, then a member of Pakistan’s leading Islamist party, alongside one of Pakistan’s sexy Westernized top models. (Mr. Khan insists he did not know that "she was a he.")
