In a time of financial crisis, actor Shaan Shahid and Hamza Ali Abbasi seems to have a perfect solution.
Following the record-breaking increase in the value of US Dollar, the actor appealed to fellow Pakistanis to sell their dollars and buy local currency instead.
The Zarrar actor’s tweet got a hashtag ‘Buy back Pakistani rupees’ trending 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.
Shaan continued, “Let’s start with whatever little we have to start with exchange 50,100 or 1000$ and buy back our rupee. We must not question right now. Let’s unite as the threat is mutual. We have a right to disagree with each other but lets agree on our survival our future.”
“Our currency, our pride,” he then tweeted. “We must defend it from economic attacks that are challenging our freedom and our right to exist. In this war, we are all economic soldiers. We must defend our rupee.”
Hamza soon caught Shaan’s stance.
“I don’t have a dollar account but my mother and sister have one. I am proud to announce that today they converted all the dollars into PKR,” the Mann Mayal star shared. “So I request all of you to DITCH THE DOLLAR and buy Pakistani rupee as soon as possible and play your part in strengthening our currency!”
