Shortly After the Award Ceremony, Mehwish faced a backlash from the public, as a matter of fact, they rejected the whole idea of her earning the spot to procure the award. She didn’t only gather Haters, there were fans and media personalities who came to rescue to support her in this time of need.

Sad for over 24 hrs terribly negative comments about #Tamghaeimtiaz awarded to #MehwishHayat. This in no means indicates that there are not countless others whose talents do not deserve it. If Almighty plans to bless you, no1 can keep that from you. Others time will come too.
