Pakistani actress Mehwish Hayat was named among people who will be presented with Tamgha-e-Imtiaz this year, and that has caused quite a stir on social media.

People have been making ridiculous statements against Mehwish. Some have gone as far as saying that the actor received award due to ‘contacts’ or because she is a ‘pretty woman’ and ‘is bestowed with a civil award’, but Mehwish says she has had enough of it.

Speaking to journalist Mubashir Lucman on his talk-show, she announced that she would take legal action against a news outlet which in its report mentioned that Mehwish was probably receiving the award because she had ‘contacts with a PTI leader’.

Mehwish said that people had the right to argue whether I deserved to receive the award or not, but they cannot point fingers at her characters. “People can talk about whether I deserve the award or not, they have the right. But it’s ridiculous to point fingers at my character. That should not happen.”

The Punjab Nahi Jaongi Actor actor added that every time a female is presented with a prestigious award, questions are raised over her character or controversies are stirred, but if a man receives a award, no one bats an eye. She said pointing fingers at her character was crossing the limit.
