Mehwish Hayat’s Message of Peace Inspires a Huge Crowd
She believes that cinema and celebrities have the power to make people’s perception about anything. She spoke about the message of peace. She also highlighted how celebrities can play an active and important role in the ongoing crisis between Indian and Pakistan over Kashmir.
Mehwish Hayat wrote in response to Priyanka Chopra’s statement:
“Chopra’s response to her questioner in LA (“I hear you……. but I am patriotic”), as well as the February tweet, did have the effect of both shining a light on the crisis in Kashmir (despite India’s media blackout and food blockade there), and forcing many of us to think about celebrity activism, its uses — and its abuses, Celebrities who act as charity spokespeople should always focus on humanitarianism. Chopra — again, a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador — should not be using her voice to legitimise a regime opposed to the values she claims to represent
