Gender discrimination apparent in comments on Pak artistes in Indian films, says Pak website


NEW DELHI: Even as several artistes from Pakistan are striking it rich in Bollywood, the social media in Pakistan is full of criticism about them.

Two recent entrants are Fawad Afzal Khan in Khoobsoorat and Humaima Mallick in Raja Natwarlal.

The response has been full of reproach.  Some pages on Facebook also have abusive remarks from their own country fellows especially Humaima Mallick who is facing discontentment for recording bold scenes in her upcoming movie with Imran Hashmi.

The ‘horrendous condemnation’ on Humaima Mallick is reminder of Veena Malik’s social media trial from which she terribly failed to sustain, according to Pakistan’s MoreMag.

Interestingly, Fawad Khan has received some praise from Pakistanis as he was already popular in the country. He has got some successful dramas in his fleet like Humsafar and Zindagi Gulzaar hai, with the latter being telecast on Zee’s Zindagi channel.

Describing it as sad, MoreMag said the other reason may be gender discrimination.

When Humaima kisses Imran Hashmi, she has to face outrage and there is a lot of hue and cry for not preserving the dignity of Pakistani culture but when Fawad does the same with Sonam Kapoor, people enjoy it, the website points out, referring to these as ‘patriarchal behaviours’.

Imran Abbas with his charming and appealing looks also gained much popularity on social media especially with girls. With some of romantic scenes with Bipasha Basu, he definitely nailed it and therefore is enjoying healthy appreciation on social media. Some people also criticised him for being too bold.

Social media is already a terrifying place for celebrities from all around the globe, whether it is for Bieber or Kim Kardashian, says the report, adding they all have been thrashed badly by the people for no considerable reason.

‘Social media has become a place where people dispose of all their frustrations,’ the report concludes.
