Following are the second set of vidcaps of Asma Iqbal, the new anchor over at Geo TV. This particular shade of blue (sapphire) suits her and she looks fresh and sprightly. From the glossy mane of hair to the tips of her long, lovely hands and the manicured nails.
With the addition of Sana and now Asma, Geo has two, top-tier anchors in it’s stable of beauties (Sana Mirza is MIA, I wonder where that lovely beauty disappeared off to). Coincidently, on this particular day, both were doing the news together, clothed in blue, no less. Anybody say clash ?.
When put up together, the slight differences in manner and style become more apparent. Sana, thanks to mother nature, has clearly had a leg-up on the competition. Combined with better access to resources and a willingness to avail those opportunities that came her way, she has turned into a mild-mannered news anchor by day and a gorgeous knockout off-the-air.
Asma Iqbal is actually prettier than Sana Tariq, based on the classic scales of beauty. She may not have been blessed with similar resources (it seems), but she has nonetheless worked hard to get noticed and is finally sitting next to Sana and able to perfectly hold her own. That shows aside from her looks, she’s got guts, man.
Aside from her beauty and charm, Asma works hard at her job. She does not sleep-walk through the news. If you look at these vidcaps, you will notice that Asma goes through 101 expressions combined with an equally varied tone and pitch quality of voice to deliver the news. Try this at home in front of the mirror for just 5 minutes and you will have a headache by the end of it.
It is not easy to be appear interested at a stretch, harder still to be interesting. Most of the time, these girls are delivering either stale, or sad news. To command a surging audience, requires more than just a pretty face. It must be an interesting performance. No easy feat, when you have a desi with dozens of options and an itchy trigger finger. He is more fickle than Coco the chimpanzee. For that Asma and Co. deserve all the credit.
