Nawazish Ali on Pervez Musharraf

(Photo from The New York Times)

The immensely popular Pakistani drag chatshow host Ali Saleem - who plays Nawazish Ali - has finally bid adieu after being forced off screen. In a country known for its orthodox beliefs, Saleem, who is open about his bisexuality, broke all norms. Famous politicians and stars would be more than willing to be interview by him, playing a flirtatious middle-aged widow. I just saw some extracts of one of his shows on YouTube... Nothing dramatic that caught my attention. But what caught my attention was his comment on Musharraf in a radio interview - He described him as a "handsome man" who “I would like better if he took of his uniform”! Who could put it better than Nawazish?
