Meesha is one of the coolest exports of Pakistan - I never tire of watching her video clip of Jugni - she moves and sings with so much soul - duende in flamenco terminology. Hats off to her parents for raising such a free spirit in an environment where females are under constant scrutiny.

Kudos to Meesha. I am always curious to know why Bollywood brings in Pakistani singers and actors. There is no shortage of such in India itself. Regardless, I am all for these joint ventures.
