Reham Khan hits out at Zulfi Bukhari, gets a blow back
LONDON - Reham Khan has hit out at Zulfi Bukhari who is a close aide of Prime Minister Imran Khan.
Expressing her thoughts on Twitter, Reham wrote, “Who says you can’t have your ‘Cake’ and eat it too? Zulfi Bokhari friend of the PM now gets his film selected to be sent in as Pakistan’s entry to the Oscar’s too.”
Reham’s comments did not go down well with the audiences and one of the lead actors of the film, Adnan Malik, responded to her tweet saying, “What an odd and unfair assertion, completely disregarding the integrity of the respectable Oscar committee members with diverse political ideologies, as well as the calibre of the film itself, which was critically acclaimed across the board (including 4 stars in the Guardian, UK).”
The Pakistani Academy Selection Committee officially selected *Cake* starring Sanam Saeed, Aamina Sheikh and Adnan Malik in the lead, for Oscar consideration in the ‘Foreign Language Film Award’ category at the 91st Academy Awards scheduled to take place on February 24, 2019.
