Just as the Pakistani media industry has evolved with time, now many celebrities can be seen just like Mathira when she was just a newcomer. This is not it, Mathira also endorsed a birth protection brand, that most of the celebrities are afraid to do.

Being a caring single parent, Mathira proved everyone that she can be an independent, bold, and outspoken person as well as a loving and caring single mother.

Many people tried to put Mathira down during her initial days of stardom, but the singer-cum-host always stood like a mountain and today is one of the most successful celebrities of Pakistan.
