Pakistan Film Festival: Mehwish Hayat Steals the Limelight In New York


Mehwish Hayat is on a roll again as she stole the limelight during her appearance at the 2nd Pakistan Film Festival in New York. Be it in Pakistan, across the border or even overseas, this diva has never failed to captivate the hearts and mind of her fans worldwide.

Yesterday, the Punjab Nahi Jaongi actress took to her Instagram account and shared that she has been honored with acknowledgment award at the second edition of Pakistan Film Festival in New York and we are so proud of her.

She shared the news with the caption:

 Receiving the Acknowledgement Award at the UN in New York was a great honor. Speaking on behalf of my industry, I was able to address UN Delegates and the media. The representation of my country is something I feel strongly about and I was pleased to be able to share my views at such a distinguished gathering. We are not as we are portrayed in Western media “…if not a positive picture of my country can we at least have a fairer one”. Let’s hope that with small steps like PFF we can start making a difference.

While receiving the award, the actress said that such events are much needed to create a positive image of our country in the international forum.

There is no doubt that actresses like Mehwish Hayat are not only contributing to our entertainment industry only, but she is also helping in shattering all the negative perspective of our country.

More Power to you Mehwish Hayat! We are so proud of you!

The second edition of Pakistan Film Festival kicked off on 7 July in New York City and some of the biggest Pakistani stars were honored for their contribution in the entertainment industry.

The event was organized by Pakistan’s UN Mission, led by Ambassador Maleeha Lodhi, which aimed to project the soft image of the country in the world.
