Pakistani actress and model Hajra Khan, known for her roles in films like “Pinky Memsaab” and the TV series “Buri Aurat,” has ignited controversy with her autobiography “Where the Opium Grows.” In the book, she makes scathing remarks about Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan Niazi, labeling him a liar and a wicked person.
Panezai’s criticism stems from a personal connection she shared with Niazi, which she details in her autobiography. She alleges that she was exploited by Niazi, her innocence taken advantage of. Her father’s involvement in PTI, initiated through her friendship with Niazi, led to her supporting the party, causing friction with friends and family.
Panezai emphasizes that her book is not intended to influence political affiliations but rather to share her personal experiences. She presents herself as an ordinary girl from Quetta, using her autobiography to urge parents to guide their daughters towards upholding moral values.
The narrative also touches upon Imran Khan’s alleged drug addiction, drawing parallels with her brother’s struggles and the impact on their family. While acknowledging her own mistakes in her friendship with Niazi, Panezai hopes that others can learn from her experiences.
