Mehwish Hayat speaks out against character assassination, celebs tweet in support

Our very own diva Mehwish Hayat will be receiving the Tamgha-e-Imtiaz for her tremendous contribution to the industry with hit films like Load Wedding, Actor in Law, Punjab Nahi Jaungi and Jawani Phir Nai Ani. The roles that she chooses reek of strength and empowering women and to be very honest, no one deserves it more than Mehwish.

When the list of recipients for the Civil Awards 2019 came out, people were ecstatic! Who else is going is empower our celebrities if not our own country? Congratulations started pouring in from other fellow celebrities and of course, some people didn’t receive the news really well. And why would they? A young talented woman, who spent the last decade giving us great content, how can she win the award? I mean obviously there had to be some *parchi* involved, because winning on merit is too basic…

But Mehwish does not take crap from anyone, she immediately called them out and demanded for an apology.

The industry and fans quickly came to Mehwish’s support










Some people were furious why the award wasn’t being given to a male actor, umm, because logic? But Maria Memon handled it pretty well.

Some people were confused why the basis of being a recipient was talent… ummm? Someone please tell them that achievements don’t only come to those who spend more time, it comes to those who are skilled enough.


To which Fifi Haroon gave a befitting reply, obviously taken aback by the backlash jumped in to reply, and it was not an apology… Fine you’re a reporting source but the headline was clearly misleading and defamatory.


I sternly believe in the saying ‘if you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all.’ As a nation we need to learn to be happy for others rather than speculating if something slanderous was involved, especially when it comes to women. Not every woman is going to take your bullshit and we applaud Mehwish Hayat for calling them out. Character assassination, regardless of the gender is not acceptable. You’re a true diva, Mehwish!
