‘It Has Made Me Stronger’: Mehwish Hayat Thanks All Her Haters

Mehwish Hayat Thanks All Her Haters

Thank you to all the supporters and also to all the haters, it has only made me stronger. The last couple weeks have been quite an eye-opener for me, wrote Punjab Nahi Jaungi actress Mehwish Hayat in a long post on her Instagram page.

In her first response to all the hate she received on social media by some unscrupulous elements after receiving the prestigious Tamgha-e-Imtiaz, the actress said that the last couple of weeks have been an “eye-opener” for her but maintained that all this hate has made her stronger than ever.

The actress, however, came down hard on elements who used abusive language against her and questioned her credentials for receiving the prestigious honour by using foul language.

“We may be part of an industry that is seen to be glamorous – but it doesn’t mean that we have forsaken our morals. What gives anybody the right to drag my name into the gutter with crude insinuations,” wrote the Dil Lagi actress, adding that using abusive language is an abhorrent slur on all the hard working women in our country.


The actress used #nomoresilence hashtag for the post which can be called a befitting reply to all the unscrupulous elements on social media.

Though I didn’t want to, I feel that I must address the nonsense that some people are spewing about my award. Debate all you like whether you think I deserve it or not – we live in a democracy and everyone is entitled to their opinions. I respect that. However, I do draw the line when my character is being questioned in the most filthy way. I never wanted to make this a gender thing but it is unfortunate that others seem to be. I’ve been called a tawaif, a slut, a whore and so many other fanciful names so often that it has stopped affecting me. However, to suggest that I slept my way to this award is an abhorrent slur on all the hard working women in our country. We may be part of an industry that is seen to be glamorous – but it doesn’t mean that we have forsaken our morals. What gives anybody the right to drag my name into the gutter with crude insinuations. You don’t know me! Thank you to all the supporters and also to all the haters, it has only made me stronger .
