Ever since her new item number ‘Gangster Guriya’ released, Mehwish Hayat has been receiving unwanted attention on social media.
It all started with this one tweet by Hayat which says, “Oops I did it again! After 5 years another cameo that I am very proud of. R u ready for Gangster Guriya? A woman in control of herself & knows what she wants! ”You can’t play me boy..nahi hoon mai khilona” Thank you
@aClockworkObi, Saqib Malik, Taha, Akif ILyas, Anila, Mo Azmi n team.”
This was enough to invite all the unnecessary bashing.
Tweeting again, Hayat made it clear that it is her own choice to do whatever she feels is good.
She wrote, “To do these dance numbers has been my choice. As an actress and performer, it is my job. As a woman I find my work empowering. Dance to me is aesthetically the purest form of art.”
To show the haters that this Chirya has wings to fly and is determined to go higher, she even shared a video of herself rehearsing for the song.
Hayat tweeted saying, “This has to be one of my most fav & toughest steps of the choreography from Gangster Guriya. Thank you
@aClockworkObi for pushing me & trusting me with these challenging moves. Looked easy but I almost fractured my knee at the shoot being the jazbaati adakaara that I am. lol.”
On Monday, this Billi shared a video of the her icon, Madonna in which the Queen of music is calling herself a ‘bad feminist’, speaking at the Billboard Women in Music, 2016.
The tweet reads, “… I am a bad feminist.” One of my heroes, Madonna speaking at the The Billboard Women in Music event in 2016.. Most inspiring and lots of food for thought.”
Earlier, Baaji movie star Osman Khalid Butt also came in support of Hayat and schooled all the critics for using foul language against the actor.
He tweeted, “This is the language used by a ‘social media influencer’ for a contemporary actress while criticizing her performance in a dance number. He has the nerve to bring religion into the mix. Pehlay apni zabaan saaf karen phir deen ka dars dijiye.”
The creative director and choreographer of the controversial song also tweeted with the lyrics of the song, reminding Hayat that she is on another level altogether.
He said, “‘Mai beparwah, na kar shikwa, tu naach le meray sang, yeah!’ Jis level pe aap hain, sab ki soch hai, Mehwish! You killed it.”
