Pakistan media can be supportive one day and ruthless the next; In case of British Canadian actress Armeena Khan, it has been ruthless most of the time. The hazel eyed beauty who has been part of the film revival with Bin Roye and Janaan was recently part of the Top 50 sexiest list and nearly missed the Top 20 mark but the media seemed more happy to cover the rest, than the one who has been in the list since last 3 years.
This is not the first time that Armeena has been ignored, when she was not nominated for the Best Actress earlier this year for Janaan, no one stood beside her. In fact, many criticized her praise for Nigar Awards for a nomination, considering she played the female lead in the second biggest hit of the year.
Does Armeena need approval from Pakistan’s social media to be recognized as a Pakistani or should she go international like Art Malik and Faran Tahir where people would recognize them for their work rather than their background. We should start praising our people like Indians do despite the fact that most of their international stars choose bad products, yet are praised for representing their country well.
Congratulations Armeena for being a true ambassador of Pakistan. You deserve to be in top 10 next year!
