  • She met Shashi Tharoor for the first time in April 2013 when she had been to India to interview the then Chief Minister of Jammu & Kashmir, Omar Abdullah. Reportedly, it was at a social gathering in Dubai when they saw each other for the second time and had been in touch with emails and Twitter since then. In an interview, Mehr said that she was in contact with him because she was, at that point, writing a book on Kerala, and used to send him articles to get feedback.
  • Mehr Tarar’s link-up with Tharoor first surfaced through one of her articles when in her Pakistan newspaper column, My Corner, dated October 20, 2013, she wrote:

    Whether they read my tweets or not is immaterial to the secret glee that at any given time I can gush over Amitabh Bachchan’s latest movie, swoon over Channing Tatum’s eyes, eulogise Nicholas Kristof’s wisdom, retweet Imran Khan’s wishes for Pakistan, smile reading Ronan Farrow’s inimitable wry humour (his movie star looks are just an added bonus), be moved by Christiane Amanpour’s heartfelt words on Syrian refugees, awww at SRK’s love for life, or praise Shashi Tharoor for his very cool words (man, his voice is mesmerizing!).”

  • Here is what Mehr had to say when interviewed about her being involved in the death of the wife of a high profile Indian politician.
