Media personality, Ramiz King and sister Rohina are coming on with a new TV show ‘West Ta East’.

Ramiz is best known for MTV love school 4 and Ace of space 2. He also produced the Afghan big brother, BaChashem.

It’s reported that the reality stars, Ramiz and Rohina who is a model/actress too are not stopping their shows regardless of the new sharia law instilled by the Taliban

Ramiz King, the skinny 9-year-old, originally from Kabul was determined to challenge the odds stacked against him and render his fledgling dream into glittering technicolor reality.

“I didn’t really have significant talent. I couldn’t sing and I couldn’t act properly or anything at that age but I still used to ‘record videos’ with a hand-held mirror,” Ramiz told VICE World News. 

Now he is a producer and well-known reality TV star with a glamorous lifestyle, he is even more dedicated to his mission. But he is facing an unlikely challenge now with The Taliban. 

Ramiz has been receiving threats from the fundamentalist armed group that now runs Afghanistan for starring in a reality TV show with his model-actress sister Rohina. The show, titled West Ta East, is inspired by Keeping Up With The Kardashians and is partly filmed and set to air in Afghanistan.

Ramiz and the show’s production team have received phone calls from private numbers in Afghanistan from individuals identifying themselves as the Taliban.

They have received a number of threats for promoting “Westernized values” and for the dominant role of the show’s female lead, Rohina. 

“The reason they want to threaten us is that I have a voice. I am confident, and I can talk about anything in front of the camera. And that’s what they don’t like. They don’t like women expressing themselves,” Rohina told VICE World News.
