Pakistan’s one-of-a-kind talk show ‘TUC: The Lighter Side of Life’ aired weekly on Saturday, has successfully captivated an audience of all ages to watch their favourite celebrities on the silver screen. The weekly one-hour series is hosted by Pakistani VJ, actress and model Mahira Khan. The guests swap stories and engage viewers through a casual, friendly chitchat to get insights into the lighter side of their life.
