Mehwish Hayat Calls Out Tarek Fatah For Posting Scene From ‘Load-wedding’
Actor Mehwish Hayat called out Pakistani-Canadian columnist and political commentator Tarek Fatah for depicting a scene from her 2018 film Load Wedding as a real event in Pakistan.
Tarek Fatah posted a video on his Twitter in which a woman is seen refusing a polio worker’s request to inoculate her child.
“It’s a scene from my movie Load Wedding, the polio worker is me and that woman an actress. Through the film we were raising awareness of the issue. Glad to see our performances were so convincing,” tweeted Mehwish.
