Tamgha-e-Imtiaz recipient Mehwish Hayat is both loved and criticized by Pakistanis for different reasons but she has gained massive respect after her address at a Peace event in Oslo, Norway.
Recently, Bollywood’s desi girl and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Priyanka Chopra responded disrespectfully to a Pakistani-American woman’s audacious question at the BeautyCon summit in Los Angeles. The actress has been under fire ever since.
The girl, Ayesha Malik questioned her about Chopra’s tweet she posted in February in support of Indian armed forces on launching alleged airstrikes in Pakistan.
Ayesha asked, why she had been advocating war between two countries, especially while Priyanka is an extremely influential persona and also a Goodwill Ambassador for UN.
In response, Priyanka Chopra said,
“I HEAR YOU. WHENEVER YOU’RE DONE VENTING… GOT IT? DONE? OK, COOL. WAR IS NOT SOMETHING I’M REALLY FOND OF, BUT I AM PATRIOTIC.”
She ended her reply by saying,
“GIRL, DON’T YELL. WE’RE ALL HERE FOR LOVE. DON’T YELL. DON’T EMBARRASS YOURSELF.”
On the other hand, Hayat while addressing at a Peace event in Oslo emphasized on how Indian film industry has mostly used its power and platform to present a negative image of Pakistan and Pakistanis, when they could actually have done the opposite and should have broken the stereotypes the world already holds about our country.
Comparison between Mehwish Hayat and Priyanka Chopra began soon after Hayat’s address.
