ISLAMABAD - Pakistani Actress Mehwish Hayat rejects Bollywood films offer
She said in a recent interview that she’d rather speak the truth and not get cast in Bollywood films.
In an interview with BBC Urdu, the Pakistani actress said that if her speaking the truth and highlighting how Pakistanis were portrayed in a negative light by Bollywood and Hollywood movies meant that Indian filmmakers won’t cast her in their films, then she’d rather have that.
“I’d rather speak the truth and not get cast in their films,” she said. “This is not something that I’ve said right now. I’ve been saying this all along. Maybe because of the current crisis, this has amplified so much. This has been my stance since day one,” she added.
Mehwish urged people who were making films that were portraying Pakistanis in a negative stereotype to come to the country and witness for themselves what Pakistanis were like.
