Pakistani actress Ushna Shah reacts to the breach of privacy on her Nikkah and wedding ceremony by a blogger and photographer.
“I am disgusted and feel violated. AB Lakhany, of Moovyshoovy, was invited out of obligation as I have known him for years and he happened to be at the office where we were designing invitations. His invite said strictly no plus one,” she wrote. “He was then sent a memo along with other guests to not record personal moments, especially the nikah. Not only did he bring a plus one, but he also brought a photographer without permission [and] lied to my family that I had allowed this. That photographer then sent exclusive unapproved photos to various [media] portals,” said the actress on her Instagram story.
The actress added that he not only brought a drone camera but snuck it into the private Nikkah enclosure on the water and recorded the signing of the papers. “This man has no principles, no ethics, and no business being hired for anything. [I] invited him out of courtesy and he showed none. I am absolutely repulsed,” she added.

She described the atmosphere when the drone reached her. “The drone was hovering loudly next to my head during my signing I had to shoo it away. I had a sick feeling in my stomach wondering who it was. Does any bride deserve this?” she questioned.
Shah also addressed comments people have made about her outfit and wrote, “Whether my dress looked Indian to people or even Mongolian, does any human being deserve this? Our nikah enclosure allowed 15 people, family only. I am dizzy with disgust that this man would stoop so low.”
