The careers of both Maya and Nadia Khan have been similar in many aspects. Both started their careers very young on national television as hosts, both acted in TV plays when they reached adolescence and both became successful morning show hosts as they grew old. Sadly, they both got carried away with the huge fan-following they garnered and forgot the meaning of morning show in their race towards better ratings!
Nadia Khan tried to do Jerry Springer in Dubai where she went out of the way (with a camera, of course!) to defend her friend (and now a successful morning show host) and actress Noor who wanted to leave her husband because he was a non-Muslim. Noor shouldn’t have gotten married to the guy in the first place, but since she realized her mistake after nearly an year, she had the right to demand a divorce. But Nadia Khan had no right to shoot the public spat between the couple and make it very public. According to sources, the popular Nadia Khan Show was disbanded soon and the ‘clash with the couples’ played an integral part in the fall of Nadia Khan.
Maya Khan, who took over as a morning show host as one of the many Nadia Khan replacements on a private TV channel, met a fate similar to her counterpart. She started inviting divorced women on her show along with their lawyers as well as her ‘in-house experts’ (of what????) where they would call the ex husband and taunt him into revealing the private details of their now public divorce. She went crazy when one of the husbands told her flatly that sharif log TV par nahi aatay, which was partly correct.
She then went a step ahead and burst into a beauty parlour to investigate whether the parlour was being used for illicit activities or not. She then started a Bach Kay Rehnasegment where helpless mothers/wives asked Maya Khan and her team to find out where their daughter/husbands go after college/work. As we all know, her Sherlock-Holmes-behaviour only shamed her because all those who saw those programs hated it. But did that stop Ms Khan from touching rock-bottom? No it didn’t as she went overboard and burst into a park where we all know what happened. She clashed with couples, demanding theirnikaah-namas and then termed the majority of public as shameless entities.
The ‘clash with the couples’ woke up the sleeping public who posted Maya Khan’s shameless pictures on Facebook and showed their displeasure by making her ‘Public Enemy #1′, a title Veena Malik held before her. Now she is the most hated of people in the media industry and everyone – from her ex employers (who terminated her contract as well as her team’s for not apologizing properly) to her ardent viewers - want to distance themselves from Maya Khan, also knows as Pyar Ki Dushman in social circles!
