Flirting and skirting her way through politics, society gossip and plain old sexual chemistry, Begum has become the most popular icon to inundate Pakistani fantasy in a while.It's possible, apparently, through this particular individual's personality and talent.
How is this possible in Pakistan where what is acceptable behaviour from female actors is still largely determined conservative Islamic values?
What about the politics?
Ali [says] "our politicians have been destroyed under a well thought campaign", adding "I want them to be popular again".
Furthermore, he says that the military - such a powerful influence in Pakistan - have been deliberately kept out of the show.
"I believe that democracy is the only option for us, and this is my contribution to the cause," Ali says determinedly.
He also wants to show what kind of country Pakistan really is, in contrast to the 'Terrorism Central' nation that it is often portrayed as.
"And I will do it," Begum exclaims and, smiling seductively, adds "after all who can resist me?"
