Mehwish Hayat slams journalist for faking news regarding 'Load wedding' polio clip
After facing online backlash, Tarek has deleted his tweet now.
KARACHI - Pakistani actor Mehwish Hayat has schooled Pakistani-Canadian pseudo journalist Tarek Fatah for tweeting a polio scene from her 2018 film as a real-life event.
Tarek Fatah misrepresented a scene from the actress’ film Load Wedding in which a woman can be seen refusing a polio worker’s request to give her child polio drops.
It’s a clip from the film and the polio worker is Hayat who goes door to door distributing polio vaccine.
Mehwish Hayat trolled him saying “Thank you for giving your two cents on this but please first verify the source before posting next time. It’s a scene from my movie ‘Load Wedding’, the polio worker is me and that woman an actress. Through the film, we were raising awareness of the issue.”
