Mahira Khan joins as ambassador for Peshawar Zalmi

ISLAMABAD: Mahira Khan has joined the roster of Peshawar Zalmi, the T20 cricket team, as their ambassador for the 2018 season of Pakistan Super League (PSL).
The actress announced her new role alongside last year’s PSL champions with a post on her official Twitter account stating: “Super excited to be part of the Peshawar zalmi family! #humzalmi #PSL3 #yellowstorm.”
Khan will be joining Hamza Ali Abbasi, who has served as a team ambassador since the first series was played in 2016. The stars are also currently filming the movie Maula Jatt 2.
The two co-stars were present for the unveiling of the new season’s kit launch, which took place in Lahore on Feb.13, and were seen across social media in a number of selfies posted by team members and attendees of the reveal.
Khan will take over the position from Humaima Mallick, who also happens to be starring the anticipated sequel to the cult classic. Fawad Khan, an ambassador for Islamabad’s PSL team Islamabad United, is playing the eponymous Maula Jatt.

Couple awarded $1 million in voyeurism lawsuit

BELLINGHAM, Washington: A judge has awarded a Washington couple $1 million in damages after they sued a former lifeguard and city employee who admitted to videotaping women while they used a staff changing area at an aquatic center.
The Bellingham Herald reports the woman in the lawsuit said the video voyeurism caused her mental anguish, altered her marriage, lifestyle and diminished her love for swimming due to the anxiety she feels when changing into a swimsuit.
The woman and her husband filed a lawsuit against the city of Bellingham and the suspect. Bellingham is 90 miles (145 kilometers) north of Seattle.
On Tuesday, Judge Raquel Montoya-Lewis awarded $750,000 to the woman and $250,000 to her husband, more than their lawyer asked for.
The court dismissed her claims against the city in March.
