Well well time really flies. It has been a year since Mehwish Hayat received the prestigious Tamgha-e-Imtiaz at a grand ceremony at the Aiwan-e-Saddar last March. To commemorate the day, Mehwish decided to relive the moment and shared a short video of herself receiving the award from President Dr Arif Alvi.
Describing the moment as life-changing, Mehwish said that she President Alvi’s words, telling her that he is proud of her, still ring in her head. Mehwish added that the past year has made her stronger and that she shoulders the responsibility that comes with the honour.
“I’ll make sure that I continue to make my country proud,” she further wrote.
Mehwish had received immense flak on social media when she was awarded the Tamgha-e-Imtiaz in March last year. Most people were of the view that she did not deserve it though their views changed after her speech at Oslo, Norway and her strong stance against Bollywood films.
