KARACHI: One bandwagon that many local celebrities seem to be jumping on is introducing their own clothing, fragrance or skincare line. Perhaps it is passion or the ongoing pandemic which forced people to explore more options, but a prominent part of celebrity culture in Pakistan has begun to be defined by businesses. Listed below are a few celebrities who turned entrepreneurs fairly recently.

Mushk Kaleem

While model Mushk Kaleem has been making her mark in the fashion industry for a couple of years, it wasn’t until March 2021 that she ventured into business. The model turned entrepreneur introduced a line of scented candles by the name of Musk by Mushk. So far, the line has eight scents with each candle presented in a sustainable marble container.
