Pakistani model Mathira wishes Zardari happy birthday

mathira zaradiISLAMABAD: Pakistani model Mathira wishes the countrys president Asif Ali Zardari happy birthday.

Mathira said “We remember Shahrukh Khan’s birthday, we remember Katrina Kaif’s birthday, but we never remember the birthday of the man who runs this country,” said Mathira.

Expressing her fondness for President Zardari, she said “the man has a personality.” “I really like that guy I think he’s great. I wanted to do something special for him on his birthday and so I did.”

In her very own Marilyn Monroe moment, the official Lux Style Awards Facebook page posted a photo of Mathira holding a cupcake in her hand to wish President Asif Ali Zardari, whose birthday falls on July 26. A statement on the corner of the picture read: “Happy Birthday, Mr President.”

While speaking to The Express Tribune about her photo, which went viral just a few hours after its release, she exclaimed that the “birthday boy” should have a great time. “We remember Shahrukh Khan’s birthday, we remember Katrina Kaif’s birthday, but we never remember the birthday of the man who runs this country,” said Mathira.

Expressing her fondness for President Zardari, she said “the man has a personality.” “I really like that guy (President Zardari), I think he’s great. I wanted to do something special for him [on his birthday] and so I did.”
“The best thing about him is that he has a ‘personality’,” continued Mathira. “Believe it or not, he can turn heads around when he enters the room.”

“People and the media don’t see his positive side. We make jokes about him, we belittle him. We forget that he has the country’s responsibility on his shoulders.”

Mathira hopes that Zardari is elected as president for a second term, too. “We should not place blame on him for everything that goes wrong in the country. No one knows what he must be going through.”
