After watching Aik Hai Nigar, I’m a bigger fan of Sir Johar than ma’am herself 🤭

this last sequence stood apart for me, the way she observes how far she has come and is proud of herself, but also remembers all the loved ones who stood by her but aren't anymore there with her and mahira did it beautifully #AikHaiNigar 🤍 pic.twitter.com/ln9O9ao3s6

#AikHaiNigar is a good, sweet, sensitive watch. There’s great attention to detail. Very impressive work. Also a great message there is: men have to be our allies & supportive partners for women to achieve great things. #NigarJohar pic.twitter.com/0POymYuf0M
