Mr. and Miss Pakistan World Letter from the President Sonia Ahmed

The year after Anzhelika Tahir got crowned as Miss Pakistan World 2015, was a year that was never ending. I cannot believe that we competed in 6 international pageants. This was an excellent year for the Miss Pakistan World pageant. From World Miss University to the third largest pageant on earth, Miss Earth. Each pageant Anzhelika Tahir, won a crown for Pakistan or a gold medal. It took us to a whole new level and the recognition for Pakistan in the world of beauty pageants got more emphasis. On the other hand, we had a newly crowned Mrs. Pakistan World from Skeikhupura, Pakistan in June 2016. Besides having 6 international pageants to go to, and a Mrs. Pakistan World crowned in Pakistan, we have recently started the Miss Pakistan pageant in Pakistan with the new Miss Pakistan goes to the Miss Asia Pacific pageant in Philippines.

The winners of Miss Pakistan World and Mr. Pakistan World got a huge opportunity to work in a movie I produced with veteran actors from Pakistan like Qavi Khan, Atiqa Ohdo, Mahmood Aktar, Azra Moheyuddin, Ali Kazmi and Mikaal Zulfiqar. Anzhelika Tahir made her debut in this Canadian Pakistani film. This was a first for Lollywood to start up in Canada and we are currently working on various projects with Canada and Pakistan in mind. I wanted to have a mini Lollywood here in Toronto, Canada and with my previous documentary, I Shall Dance and my current Lollywood Film, and other projects coming soon, we are on the right path.

I want to thank Hassan Bhatti, Mr. Pakistan World 2015 who contributed a lot in the local market. I want to thank Waltter Siddique who has not only helped the film as a stylist by also as a stylist and wardrobe consultant for the pageant. I would like to thank our main sponsors that have made this event possible today. And I would like to thank all the contestants that have come here to believe in our 14th year for the Mr. and Miss Pakistan World 2016.
