[Pakistan, Thursday, 24th July'14]: Despite his extremely busy schedule between
shooting his Ramazan transmission and Furqan Khan's upcoming serial Iqrar, Faysal
Quraishi still finds time to contribute to society by sharing his views on important issues
through different organized platforms.
Faysal's latest contribution came through his participation at the social media get together,
Social Smashup Pakistan which took place on 19th July'14 at the Regent Plaza, Karachi. The
conference brought together prominent personalities such as Najam Sethi, Faizan Lakhani,
Sohail Haider,Yasir Latif Hamdani, Raza Rumi and many more from different sectors to have
discussions and share their views on serious matters such as, military, politics, business
and foreign policy.
The panel in which Faysal Quraishi participated was called 'Convergence of Social Media
& Entertainment Industry.' Faysal was on the panel along with filmmaker Shahzad Nawaz
and political analyst, journalist and television host, Dr. Shahid Masood. The panel was
moderated by well-known filmmaker Furqan T. Siddiqui.
Faysal Quraishi commented regarding his participation in this discussion: “I felt that this
was a very good conference as it addressed how important a role social media, especially
Facebook is playing in today’s market. For example, even the biggest companies in the world
are moving away from websites and focusing on promoting themselves through Facebook.
They should definitely have this get together again on a much larger scale and invite more
youth to it as it is a very important platform through which to learn about the impact of social
media in every aspect of today’s society.”
