Mahira Khan for Verna
Mehwish Hayat in Punjab Nahi Jaungi Vs. Mahira Khan in Verna, whose your pick?But wait, did you watch the film? Did you find it running long enough in cinema houses? What did the critics rate the film? If we recall, Verna did not do well on the box office. Even though Mahira was praised, Punjab Nahi Jaungi was a favorite this year and it was expected Mehwish Hayat would win the award for the best actress owing to her amazing portrayal of Amal in the film.
And so, it’s only natural that a lot of people, from the fraternity and general public have been miffed for Mehwish Hayat’s snub at LSA.
Mehwish Hayat in Punjab Nahi Jaungi Vs. Mahira Khan in Verna, whose your pick?
Here’s what Ahmed Ali Butt has to say about it commenting Mehwish’s performance was amazing, “This year Mehwish stole our heart with her stellar performance in PNJ and we all wanted her to win. I love all the nominees who made it this year Mehwish, Mahira, Ainee and so on. All worked hard and deserve all the success their films got. In the end these are awards you win some and you loose some but people will always remember your performance.”
Also the general public too felt the award was biased!
No, we do not doubt Mahira Khan’s acting capabilities one ounce. We know she’s phenomenal, but we’re just asking one simple question, if this one was a viewer’s choice award for best film actress, why didn’t the actress starring in the highest grossing movie of the year stand a chance? Does being a brand ambassador already entitle you to the award, maybe we could get an answer?
