These top 6 Pakistani social media hot-picks are a prove how this platform provides a real entertainment along with some serious discussion


Pakistan Super League PSL 2017


No wonders, why PSL remained a center of discussion on social media as it was the first ever cricket league of Pakistan. Despite all their tight schedule youngsters took to social media for expressing their emotions about the thrilling game, but not forgetting to mention the traditional differences between the cities, especially those of Lahore Vs Karachi. Now when the second season of PSL is on its way with the schedule already finalized, we just expect the same sort of storm of social media trolls the hot-picks of the game.

Angel of Mankind

Tahir Shah


The very quote Naam he Kaafi Hai ( the Only name is enough) sits well when it comes to Tahir Shah. The man who rose to the height of fame because of its super flop plus hit Eye to Eye in 2013. The Same fate was met by his new Angel of Mankind that despite heavy criticism and dislike received thousands of views on Youtube. The man left not only Pakistanis but also Indians in awe due to apparently awkward and meaningless song. Still, it managed to grab space among the top ten most videos on Youtube in Pakistan.

Jeena of Mann Mayel

Jeena of Mann Mayel


Pakistani dramas never fail to entertain us. Every season there is at least one show that rules not only the screens but also the social media arena providing with new hot picks. This year credit directly went to Mann Mayel starring Hamza Ali Abbasi, Maya Khan and Ayesha Khan (Jeena) in lead roles. The role of jeena as an orphan and er dialogue Mery to Maan Baap bhi Nhi hain (I don’t even have parents) proved to be a quite flexible phrase capable of adjusting for every joke on social media.

Momina Mustehsan

Coke Studio Season 9 might have failed in providing the perfect songs, but it has for sure given Pakistan a gem in the form of Momina Mustehsan. Social media users made her center of their discussion, not because of her melodious voice but because of her charming looks, the fact that the singer personally didn’t like. Such fame on social media made her become the marketing ambassador for PSL franchise, Islamabad United.

Arshad Khan aka Chaiwala

Arshad Khan


The man was undoubtedly the hottest pick of social media manifesting the actual power of this platform. Spotted by a photographer in a Sunday Market, the man got fame as blue-eyed handsome Chaiwala who should probably better walk on ramp rather than pouring hot tea from the saucepan into the cup on a tea stall. The man who became the center of Facebook trolls ended up landing a career in modeling and then Pakistan film industry.

Sheikh Rasheed

The politician from Rawalpindi rebutted all the myths that Pindi boys are just street roamers and stalkers at the squares. His stunt of dodging the Police and escaping on the motorcycle to reach the Imran Khans sit in left everyone in awe. His action was quiet eligible to become on of the hot-picks on social media youth, Afterall they had seen a Hollywood movie scene becoming a reality.
