Neelam Muneer seeks to justify her 'item' song for Kaaf Kangna

Published: October 22, 2019

Actor Neelam Muneer has sought to justify doing an ‘item’ song for her upcoming film, Kaaf Kangna.

Muneer’s apparent nationalistic fervour has landed her in hot waters after her caption comically implied various intentions behind the making of the film.


Perhaps the Pakistani actors have also found new ways to escape the harsh feedback surrounding their roles and performance. Nevertheless, Muneer believes it is her way of showcasing patriotism and sacrificing for her nation.

In a recent turn of events, the film and TV actor uploaded a video of her ‘item’ song on Instagram with the caption, “I did this song only because this movie is a project of ISPR”.

As she continued to relay her side of the story, “Perhaps this is the first and last item song of my life. But you all should know that what ever I do, I own it and I do it with pride. Pakistan key liey mari Jan hamesha hazir hey (I will do anything for the sake of my country). I’m sure you all will go and watch this movie. Enjoy Kaaf Kangna!” concluded the star.

The upcoming film is expected to release by the end of October and its schedule will clash with Shamoon Abbasi’s Durj.

However, Muneer’s caption stirred severe backlash, perhaps more than it would have stirred if her dance alone was being criticised. Given that now, the star along with the film and the ISPR are being dragged on Twitter for having implied other interests.
