Nadia’s journey has not been an easy one. As the saying goes, ‘change is imminent’; thus Nadia has evolved as a person by working in immensely tough situations. She has no fears to speak out her mind. She started her career by hosting ‘Daak Time’ with Uncle Sargam. Her light chitchat with Uncle became the highlight of the show.

eo Vision gets an opportunity to talk to your favorite host Nadia Khan where she explains about her show and what new she is going to offer in her up-coming shows.
Geo Vision: As in your previous show of NKS, where you had topic-based discussion; this time how unique is this show from your previous one?
Nadia Khan: There is nothing new which I am going to do in this show. All the elements in show are more in the lines of typical NKS but yes with an updated version. Now you will be able to watch our program twice a week. Entertaining viewers is the first priority of my program but I believe that without knowledge, the conversation becomes boring. Fortunately I am here in Pakistan and I am closely observing the changing trends and scenario of our country. Therefore I have an advantage of incorporating more local flavors to the show which will add more energy and crispiness to the program.
Nadia: Doing a show for 5 days a week is not an easy task; as a host you are physically drained and left with no vitality at the end of the week. Further the constant effort to put up the good show every other day and eventually you have a dearth of substantial content; all this makes it nerve-racking. Ultimately your personal life is affected. For me, doing a weekly show gives me more time to focus more on my life and on my family nonetheless. I feel contented and happy.
GV: You are a trendsetter in the case of morning shows, therefore what kind of trend you want to set through this show among viewers?
Nadia: I want to clarify once again that there is nothing different in this program; it will be working on the same lines but of course with an additional improvisation. Having said that, I find there is lack of intelligent and entertaining chitchat in showbiz. So, firstly in this program there will be lots of interesting gupshup with celebrities which will not bore you for sure. Secondly, to convey social awareness among viewers but instead of inflicting depression, focus more on the positive side of the issue.
GV: How do you manage to keep yourself optimistic regardless of all the pessimism around you?
Nadia: I tell you it is not an easy process, constant effort is required to manage yourself. For me, hate is a strong emotion which if lingers for so long it eats you like a termite…as a result you feel miserable. To avoid getting sad, I don’t instill negative thoughts in my mind. I reckon you need to daily buck up yourself and have a positive self-talk in order to clear your conscience from pessimistic feelings. It can take couple of days or even months but I am convinced that it is an effective mental conditioning to inculcate optimism.
Nadia: I love working in Geo, it has everything which I do not find in other channel. People who work over here understand the technicalities, and are intellectually sound. So far my association with Geo is amazing and it’s never-ending relation.
GV: As a host, what new you offer to your viewers?
Nadia: Viewers gets to meet old Nadia; this time I have more stories to tell to the viewers. As my part I try and add more energy to the show and do lots of entertaining chitchat with my viewers Live.
GV: Your message to your fans and to the viewers who are going to watch this show?
Nadia: If you want good entertainment so for the starters you should appreciate good entertainment and only then the trend can be changed. This show entails a different flavor which is for people who not only value good entertainment but also want something substantiality in a program.
