  3. Fahad Mustafa is an amazing and talented actor who has worked really hard to be at the position where he stands right now. We are living in the age of social media where any of your acts can get you severe criticism or even can make you a star overnight. People are so aware of their right to express their opinions on any matter. Social media has really become a great power that either can be used in constructive or destructive ways. Our celebrities are those who get mostly bullied and trolled on social media for any certain reason. Now recently Fahad Mustafa advised on his Instagram account regarding the intentions while helping someone needy or poor. He is of the view that put your cameras aside while helping others. He clearly meant not to showcase your efforts if you are helping others. This very opinion just made him face severe backlash as people just started dragging him in the comments. People are of the view that the message or advice is good but the person who is preaching is inappropriate. People even are offended by his behavior at the game show Jeeto Pakistan. They are of the view that this person humiliates others for giving gifts. People further added that if his advice would be a tend upon then his show should be the first thing to get banned. It seems like people are not happy with his opinion and are targeting him for his show. All his statement has turned into a negative sense. People are commenting like just see who is speaking. He himself In front of many cameras helps others. Fahad Mustafa is such a nice man and obviously doesn’t have the intention to Insult others but as we said social media is powerful and here everyone is free to write whatever he wants to. So let’s read people’s comments. So guys what are your views? Don’t forget to write to us and let us know about your precious views. Thanks!
  4. Ali Safina is an amazing and brilliant drama actor. He is well known for his famous character Takka from the comedy-drama series Dolly ki Ayegi Baraat. Ali Safina is a strongly opinionated person and obviously doesn’t hesitate when it comes to speaking his mind. He married beautiful and incredibly talented actress Hira Tareen and was blessed with an amazing daughter. Recently the gorgeous couple was seen in a famous show named Time Out With Ahsan Khan aired on Hum tv. It was a lot of fun watching them on the show. Ali Safina didn’t hesitate to put her stance when asked about the actor whose acting Hira does not like. He bluntly said he likes her and she is very beautiful but she needs to improve her acting skills. Ali Safina added that he is speaking his heart out. On answering the question Hira said that no she likes Mahira a lot. Hira Tareen said that Mahira Khan is one of those blessed actors who just have to be her charming self. And Ahsan Khan added that he loves the way she is. Hira Tareen is of the view that Mahira Khan is Shahrukh Khan of Pakistan and she just has to be herself. Ali Safina added that unluckily Shahrukh Khan also has to go through these comments in his country. Ali Safina revealed that her wife Hira Tareen really does not like Yasir Hussain’s acting and Hira said I actually don’t like him as a person as well. Just moving forward she added that she knows it doesn’t bother him whether I like him or not but seriously I don’t like him. Ali Safina on a lighter note added that it’s strange that they both are supporting Mahira Khan but are least concerned about Yasir Hussain. Here’s the video watch and enjoy it. What are your views guys? Do write to us and let us know in the comments section below. Thanks!
  5. If you were poking around RT a week and a half or so ago, you might have come across a little poll we were taking on the site to try and determine the Scariest Movie Ever. Based on other lists and suggestions from the RT staff, we pulled together 40 of the scariest movies ever made and asked you to vote for the one that terrified you the most. As it happens, a British broadband service comparison website decided to conduct a science experiment to determine the same thing, and their results were… surprising, to say the least. Did Rotten Tomatoes readers agree with the findings? Read on to find out what our fans determined were the 10 Scariest Horror Movies Ever. 1. THE EXORCIST (1973) (Photo by ©Warner Bros. courtesy Everett Collection) You may not agree that The Exorcist is the scariest movie ever, but it probably also isn’t much of a surprise to see it at the top of our list — with a whopping 19% of all the votes cast. William Friedkin’s adaptation of the eponymous novel about a demon-possessed child and the attempts to banish said demon became the highest-grossing R-rated horror film ever and the first to be nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars (it earned nine other nominations and took home two trophies). But outside of its critical and commercial bona fides, the film is well-known for the mass hysteria it inspired across the country, from protests over its controversial subject matter to widespread reports of nausea and fainting in the audience. Its dramatic pacing and somewhat dated effects may seem quaint compared to some contemporary horror, but there’s no denying the power the film continues to have over those who see it for the first time. 2. HEREDITARY (2018) (Photo by ©A24) Writer-director Ari Aster made a huge splash with his feature directorial debut, a dark family drama about the nature of grief couched within a supernatural horror film. Toni Collette earned a spot in the pantheon of great Oscar snubs with her slowly-ratcheted-up-to-11 performance as bedeviled mother Annie, but the movie’s biggest shock came courtesy of… Well, we won’t spoil that here. Suffice it to say Hereditary struck such a nerve with moviegoers that it instantly turned Aster into a director to watch and shot up to second place on our list. 3. THE CONJURING (2013) (Photo by Michael Tackett/©Warner Bros. Pictures) James Wan has staked out a place among the modern masters of horror, directing films like Saw, Dead Silence, Insidious, and this inspired-by-true-events chiller based on the experiences of real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren. The Warrens, best known for their work on the strange case that inspired the Amityville Horror movies (which played a part in The Conjuring 2), were portrayed by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga, who grounded the effective jump scares and freak-out moments with a believable world-weariness. Together, Wan and his co-leads found fresh terror in familiar genre tropes, and the end result is a sprawling cinematic universe that only continues to grow. 4. THE SHINING (1980) (Photo by ©Warner Brothers) Literally dozens of Stephen King’s novels and stories have been adapted for the big screen, and several of those films are considered classics today, like Carrie, Misery, and Pet Sematary (and that doesn’t even account for non-horror stuff like The Shawshank Redemption and Stand By Me). But the mother of them all is easily Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation of The Shining. A marvel of set and production design and a genuinely unnerving take on the traditional haunted house story, The Shining features a host of memorable images and an iconic Jack Nicholson performance. The film’s relatively few jumps scares are still absolutely chilling, but its true power lies in the way it crawls under your skin and makes you experience Jack Torrance’s slow descent into madness. It’s rightfully considered one of the greatest horror films ever made, and it ranked fourth in our poll. 5. THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE (1974) (Photo by Everett Collection) While the top four movies on this list collectively garnered 42% of the total votes counted, they were followed by six films that all earned around 3% of the vote each. In other words, these last six films were separated by no more than 60 votes. The first of them is this low-budget slasher directed and co-written by Tobe Hooper, very loosely inspired by the crimes of Ed Gein. Texas Chainsaw’s grimy aesthetic helped lend it an air of authenticity, which made it all the more frightening (“This could actually happen, you guys!”), and the massive, menacing presence of Gunnar Hansen’s Leatherface paved the way for other brutes like Michael Myers and Jason Voorhees. Multiple attempts have been made to breathe new life into the franchise — and we have another one on the way — but none have equaled the original in sheer, over-the-top, power tool-inspired terror. 6. THE RING (2002) (Photo by ©DreamWorks courtesy Everett Collection) It’s always a tricky proposition to take something that works well for one culture and try to translate that formula successfully for another, but Gore Verbinski managed that with The Ring. A remake of Japanese director Hideo Nakata’s acclaimed thriller about a cursed videotape, Verbinski’s take kept the original film’s striking visual imagery — the ghost of a young girl in a white dress with long black hair covering her face — and found that it scared the hell out of audiences no matter where they were from. While the film wasn’t as well-regarded as its predecessor, it features a committed performance from a then up-and-coming Naomi Watts, and for many, it served as an introduction to East Asian horror cinema. 7. HALLOWEEN (1978) (Photo by ©Compass International Pictures) Coming in at the seventh spot on our list is the film that introduced the world to all-time scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis and put John Carpenter on the map. Halloween is frequently cited as one of the earliest examples of the slasher genre as we know it today, and while it may not feature the same kind of realistic gore we’ve come to expect of films in that category, it packs a lot of tension and some inventive thrills in a relatively small-scale package. The film’s legacy is also fairly untouchable: Michael Myers’ mask has become the stuff of legend, and the giant, unstoppable killer and the “final girl” have become ingrained in the horror lexicon. There’s a reason the franchise is still going after more than 40 years. 8. SINISTER (2012) (Photo by ©Summit Entertainment) For those who didn’t read the “scientific study” mentioned at the top, we’ve finally come to the film it crowned the scariest. Before he joined the MCU with 2016’s Doctor Strange, director Scott Derrickson had racked up a few horror films, a couple of which earned cult followings. One of them was this small-scale haunted house/possession story about a true-crime writer (Ethan Hawke) who moves his wife and kids into a house where a family was murdered, only to discover the new place might already have a rather evil tenant. Writer C. Robert Cargill was reportedly inspired to pen the script based on a nightmare he had after watching The Ring, and the story does share a minor similarity with that film, what with the creepy snuff film angle. But for many who saw it, the dramatic reveals and creepy set pieces far outweighed any recycled genre tropes that might have been present. Plus, there’s at least one report out there that says it’s the scariest movie ever made, so that must count for something. 9. INSIDIOUS (2010) (Photo by ©FilmDistrict courtesy Everett Collection) James Wan has already shown up higher on the list, but before he and Patrick Wilson made The Conjuring, they worked together on this supernatural thriller about a young boy who falls into a coma and begins to channel a malevolent spirit. The bare bones of the story weren’t the most groundbreaking, but frequent Wan collaborator Leigh Whannell infused it with a compelling enough mythology that it spawned three more installments. Wan also stated that Insidious was meant to be something of a corrective to the outright violence of Saw, which compelled him to craft something on a more spiritual level, and the end result is an effective chiller featuring what is frequently regarded one of the best jump scares ever put on screen. 10. IT (2017) (Photo by Brooke Palmer/©Warner Bros.) The fear of clowns is a very real thing, even if it’s become so commonplace to announce it that it feels disingenuous. If you needed any further evidence, we direct you to the box office haul of 2017’s IT, based on the Stephen King novel of the same name, which went on to beat The Exorcist’s 44-year record as the highest-grossing horror film ever. Oh, and of course, its 10th-place finish on this list. Andy Muschietti’s big-budget adaptation drew on nostalgia to tell its story of children scarred by trauma, while Bill Skarsgard’s take on Pennywise the evil, shapeshifting clown was bizarre and unsettling in all the right ways. Add a healthy dose of jump scares, a handful of impressive set pieces, and some top-notch CGI, and you’ve got a recipe for a horror film that’s both fun and full of scares.

But at the same time, the actor got out of the car and made his video and shared the picture of the car accident with the fans and indicated that he is fine.
  8. 15/15 Aquarius (7.1) Don't let that mystifying title mislead, this series set in the '60s weaves a detective tale of drugs, death, and the disillusionment of the psychedelic age. Sam Hodiak might be a fictitious member of the LAPD, but when he has to match wits against the infamous and very real Charles Manson and his murderous family, it spells out a period drama that's a little bit more than Helter Skelter.
  9. 14/15 The Borgias (7.9) If there's one reason to watch this series, it's Jeremy Irons as Rodrigo de Borgia/Pope Alexander VI. The series, as the title would imply, focuses on the notorious Borgia family and their rise to power and infamy during Renaissance-era Italy. If Irons's brilliant and despicable portrayal of the scandalous pontiff wasn't enough to grab the audience's attention, its plot is absolutely seething and slithering with greed, intimidation, treachery, and sacrilegious scandal.
  10. 13/15 Knightfall (6.8) Knightfall premiered in 2017 on the History Channel and so far, two seasons of this historic show have aired. So far, there's not a ton of news about when the third season will be making it onto the airwaves, but fans are excited to see where this show will be going in the future. This series is set in the 14th century and follows the Knights of Templar. The series primarily focuses on their leader, Landry du Lauzon, who is a brave warrior that's struggling to find inspiration to keep leading the Knights of Templar in the face of their failures. When rumors that the Holy Grail is out there somewhere, du Lauzon finds himself feeling inspired again.
  11. 12/15 Thieves Of The Wood (6.9) Thieves of the Wood is a Netflix original series that began airing on the streaming service in 2018. This show is a Belgian series that is set in the 18th century. This series is based on a novel and, without giving any spoilers, the show ended in a similar way to the novel, so it doesn't seem that the series will be getting a second season. This is perfectly fine because a miniseries is always fun to binge over a weekend and the end of the show tied up a lot of loose ends. This period drama follows Jan de Lichte, a highwayman who leads the revolution against the corrupt aristocracy in his home country of Belgium.
  12. 11/15 The Tudors (8.1) The Tudors aired from 2007 through 2010 for a total of four seasons. Now, this series that originally aired for Showtime is available to stream on a few different streaming services and is totally worth bingewatching for anyone that wants to see a scandalous, dramatic take on the early days of King Henry VIII's reign.
  13. 10/15 Poldark (8.3) Poldark is a historical period drama that began airing in 2015 as part of PBS' Masterpiece line of shows. The series is set in the late 18th century in England and is based on a novel series by the same name. This series stars Aidan Turner as Ross Poldark, a man who everyone he knew believed to be dead prior to his return home from fighting in the American Revolution. The love of his life has gotten engaged and his father is dead, his property having been sold and more or less abandoned. The series follows the man's struggles with returning home and back to his previous life.
  14. 9/15 The Last Kingdom (8.3) The Last Kingdom is a historical series that began airing in 2015 and is based on The Saxon Stories novels by Bernard Cornwell. The series began airing on BBC America before Netflix acquired the rights to the series and have been solely producing episodes since then. The series is set in the late 9th century. It follows a man named Uhtred who was born as a Saxon but has spent his life raised by Vikings. As conflicts arise, Uhtred is forced to choose between the people that he was raised by and the people who he is connected to by blood.
  15. 8/15 Call The Midwife (8.4) Call the Midwife is a BBC period drama that is set in the 1950s and 1960s. Although many of the super popular historic shows that IMDb users just can't get enough of are set way farther back in history, the fact that this series is set in the mid-20th century doesn't make it any less fun to watch. This series began airing in 2012 and currently has 11 seasons. The series is based on a series of novels by Jennifer Worth and follows a young midwife named Jenny who recently left her home to work in London's Nonnatus House as a midwife.
  16. 7/15 John Adams (8.5) For fans of the historical musical sensation, Hamilton, it might behoove them to invest their time by revisiting another famous founding father with John Adams. HBO's popular historical drama regarding America's first 50 years and the president's involvement in the nation's genesis. Although it lacks any of the head-bobbing musical numbers, it has the same amount of political intrigue, drama, and famous figures from American history. What truly sells the series is Paul Giamatti's portrayal as John Adams himself. From the tides of the American Revolution to his days as the second president of the United States, Giamatti shines an emotional and engaging light on one of America's lesser-discussed founding fathers.
  17. 1/15 The Chosen (9.7) Although Jesus Christ is no doubt the main feature of this free-to-watch series, it's the disciples and other characters that truly make this series shine like salt and light. Viewers are exposed to events like the healing of Mary Magdaline, the calling of the apostles, and Jesus's other miracles, but they are all shown through the eyes of Nicodemus, Peter, Matthew, and other biblical supporting cast members. Seeing these New Testament events unfold in front of not just the main cast, but side characters and supports like the high priests, the Roman legions, and the commonfolk of Jerusalem puts a different yet inspiring spin on Jesus's narrative, as well as showing how far his influence touched the multitudes. 2/15 Band Of Brothers (9.4) A collaboration between Tom Hanks and Steven Speilberg, Band of Brothers followed in close proximity to the iconic Saving Private Ryan in terms of content, setting, and historical material. The series follows the lives of Easy Company, 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, of the 101st Airborne Division and their involvement and service during WWII. From the time the soldiers first arrive at basic training up until Japan's surrender in 1945. In that span of time, the series allows the audience to grow with its cast and witness historic and devastating events such as the invasion of Normandy, the Battle of the Bulge, and the capture of Eagle's Nest all through the eyes of the troops. 3/15 The Crown (8.7) The Crown is definitely one of the best-known historical series right now, so it should be no surprise that this show came in at the number one spot on this list of historical TV shows. This show premiered on Netflix in 2016 and stars Claire Foy as a young Queen Elizabeth II. Queen Elizabeth II took the throne when she was 25 years old and this series follows her life as a young member of the royal family back in the 1940s. The show follows her life through the years and gives us a glimpse into the way that political rivalries and personal relationships impacted the way of life in the 20th century. 4/15 Vikings (8.6) Vikings is a historical drama that began airing on the History Channel in 2013. The sixth and final season premiered in 2020 and Netflix is working on producing a sequel series called Vikings: Valhalla. The series is based on various Norse myths and legends. The show follows a warrior named Ragnar Lothbrok who is known for being one of the bravest Viking warriors of his time. The series follows Lothbrok's rise from being a simple farmer to being a legendary warrior who many people believe to be a direct descendant of Odin himself. Later seasons of the series feature his family and children. 5/15 Boardwalk Empire (8.5) Boardwalk Empire aired from 2010 through 2014 and is set in Atlantic city during the Prohibition Era. Steve Buscemi stars in this series as Nucky Thompson, a sly politician who runs Atlantic City with the help of the mobsters that are working in the seedy underbelly of the city. This crime drama follows Nucky's rise to prominence as a politician in Atlantic city through the 1920s until the early 1930s when Prohibition came to a close. The main character of this series is loosely based on Enoch L. Johnson, a real-life politician from Atlantic City in this era. 6/15 Spartacus (8.5)

  20. So you probably remember Ed Sheeran's Game of Thrones cameo — and, who knows, maybe you weren't too happy about it. If you don't remember, the superstar singer-songwriter popped up in the first episode of season 7, "Dragonstone," where he shared a short scene with Arya Stark (Maisie Williams). If you don't remember, the superstar singer-songwriter popped up in the first episode of season 7, "Dragonstone," where he shared a short scene with Arya Stark (Maisie Williams). In a recent episode of Dax Shepard's Armchair Expert podcast, Sheeran spilled all about the guest spot, explaining that it was intended to be a surprise for his good friend Williams. While he described the experience of shooting the cameo as "great," Sheeran also admitted that “I feel like people’s reaction to it sort of muddied my joy to it." That's a shame. Sheeran also revealed that part of the reason why he attempted the surprise cameo (which, as it turns out, co-star Sophie Turner accidentally revealed to Williams before shooting) was because Arya Stark was originally supposed to die that season. “She’s always been awesome,” Sheeran said. “I don’t think they had written the ending yet. It was meant to be her last season but it wasn’t. And as a surprise for her, [they got] me on. So, she was meant to turn up on set. and I was by the fire.”
