Shaan Shahid initiated a social media trend called ‘#BuybackPakistanirupee’ on Twitter. “Appeal to all my fellow Pakistanis .. #buybackpakRs no matter how little or how big one can afford but let’s put in our share,” he wrote.

The Parwaz Hai Junoon actor, Hamza Ali Abbasi, soon joined the trend and urged people to sell off their Dollars in the market.
“I don’t have a dollar account but my mother and sister have one.
