ISLAMABAD - Pakistani top actress blasts India media and film Industry over frustration against Pakistan and promoting war hysteria.
Mehwish Hayat extended the message of peace and harmony in an auspicious ceremony in Norway where she was awarded with the Pride of Performance Award by the Prime Minister Erna Solberg.
Addressing the event, the Pakistani starlet urged Hollywood and Bollywood to use cinema for promoting mutual understanding by representing the true image of Pakistan instead of vilifying the nation as they do.
She bravely highlighted how Bollywood and Hollywood tarnished the image of Pakistan globally, through their vilified portrayal and stereotyping of the countrymen. She also became the voice of the innocent Kashmirs at the forum and highlighted the atrocities they have been facing for decades.
