Mehwish Hayat corrected Tarek Fatah for posting a movie clip from Load Wedding

Mehwish Hayat, Pakistani actress, corrected Canadian-Pakistani author and staunch critic of military establishment, on his confusion on polio campaign scene from the movie 'Load Wedding'. Hayat informed him that the video is not real but a scene from her movie Load Wedding released last year. Embarrassed Fatah removed the tweet later.

Headstrong actress, Mehwish Hayat shot back at Canadian author with Pakistani origin, Tarek Fatah, for misinterpreting mobile footage of a scene from the movie ‘Load Wedding’ as real.

Fatah, posted the video on his Twitter account and assuming the video real, mocked Pakistan.

“Pakistani mother slams the door shut in the face of Polio workers. Screams at the two female volunteers: “I will never allow my children to take these drops. Never never will my kids drink these drops. Never,” he had tweeted.

Mehwish Hayat jumped in to tell him that the mobile video is not real but a scene from her movie, Load Wedding.

“Thank u for giving ur 2 cents on this but pls first verify the source b4 posting next time. It’s a scene from my movie ‘load wedding’ the polio worker is me & that woman an actress,” she said. “Through the film, we were raising awareness of the issue. Glad 2 see our performances were so convincing,” she added. Left embarrassed following Mehwish Hayat’s response, Tarek Fatah deleted his tweet.

Mehwish Hayat is praised for fighting Pakistan’s case for decades; the stereotypical portrayal of compatriots as terrorists and religious extremists in Hollywood and Bollywood, at international forums.

For several years Pakistan has been putting up a relentless fight against the robust propaganda by Hollywood and Bollywood of maligning Pakistan and its citizens, as a dangerous, backward and uncivilized nation hungry for war and bloodshed.

Hayat outstretched her voice at international media outlets including CNN and Sky News following Priyanka Chopra’s debacle of snubbing a Pakistani girl for calling her a hypocrite.

Priyanka Chopra backed aggression by the Indian government despite being a global peace ambassador.
