British-Pakistani Mayor of London Sadiq Khan and popular Pakistani-American comedian Kumail Nanjiani have been named among 100 influential people from around the world according to Time’s 100 most influential people list.
The 2018 list features some of the world’s most significant artists, scientists, activists, entrepreneurs and so on selected by the magazine’s editors.
“Time’s annual list of the world’s most influential people is a designation of individuals whose time, in our estimation, is now,” Time’s editor-in-chief Edward Felsenthal said. “The Time 100 isn’t a measure of power, though many on the list wield it. Nor is it a collection of milestones accumulated. As our staff considers candidates, we often find ourselves wowed by those with stunning lifetime achievements.
The list included world leaders such as US President Donald Trump, Saudi Crown prince Muhammad Bin Salman, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Chinese President Xi Jinping.
Artists such as Jimmy Kimmel, Nicole Kidman, Jenifer Lopez and Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone also made it to the list.
Britain’s Prince Harry, his fiancee and former US actress Meghan Markle and Indian cricketer Virat Kohli were also mentioned on the list.
