Last week, Bollywood’s desi lady Priyanka Chopra, also a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, got here below fire after she lashed out at a Pakistani female who known as the actress out for encouraging struggle between India and Pakistan.
While responding to the question, Priyanka Chopra said:
I HAVE MANY, MANY FRIENDS FROM PAKISTAN, AND I AM FROM INDIA, AND WAR IS NOT SOMETHING I’M REALLY FOND OF, BUT I AM PATRIOTIC.
Soon after her statement, a wide variety of Pakistani celebrities stood up against her and requested for her removal as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador.
Similarly, the Punjab Nahi Jaongi actress Mehwish Hayat also raised her voice towards her and puzzled if UNICEF wishes to precede its partnership with Priyanka Chopra.
The starlet was recently in Oslo, Norway to acquire the honor from the Prime Minister of Norway and her speech left her fans totally awestruck. Mehwish Hayat used this platform to voice in opposition to the clichéd image of Pakistan as portrayed by using Bollywood and Hollywood.
She blamed Hollywood and Bollywood for the bad picture of Pakistan and Islam all around the globe. Mehwish Hayat took this platform to increase her voice against the terrible picture of Pakistan portrayed by using Bollywood and Hollywood in their films.
The actress said:
IT HAS TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE DAMAGE THEY’VE INFLICTED ON MY COUNTRY [PAKISTAN] WITH THE WAY THEY HAVE BEEN PORTRAYING US. I DON’T ASK FOR MORE POSITIVE REPRESENTATIONS BUT AT LEAST CAN THESE REPRESENTATIONS BE MORE BALANCED. THERE’S MORE TO US THAN GUN WIELDING TERRORISTS OR SUBJUGATED WOMEN. COME ON, THAT’S SO CLICHED. LET’S MOVE ON FROM THAT.
She similarly said:
AS FOR OUR NEIGHBOURS, THEY REALLY NEED TO DECIDE WHAT IS IT THAT THEY WANT – NATIONALISTIC FERVOUR OR A PEACEFUL FUTURE? IF THEY REALLY WANT TO WORK TOWARDS PEACE LIKE OUR PRIME MINISTER IMRAN KHAN SAID IF THEY TAKE THE FIRST STEP, WE ARE READY TO TAKE TEN MORE. I PRAY THAT COMMON SENSE PREVAILS AND WITHIN THIS LIFETIME WE ARE ABLE TO WITNESS REAL PEACE IN THE REGION.
A wide variety of netizens praised Mehwish Hayat for her tremendous speech and in contrasts it with Priyanka Chopra’s response over Indo-Pak tension.
Bollywood could have used cinema to promote mutual understanding as a substitute of vilifying us as they do. They want to decide which is extra essential – nationalistic fervor or a peaceful future.
