In case you missed it, Mehwish Hayat recently did a special song for Meera Jee’s upcoming film Baaji. The song has Mehwish channel her inner rebel and show off her moves. Needless to say, the song irked Pakistanis and many called for Mehwish’s Tamgha-e-Imtiaz to be cancelled.

Mehwish being Mehwish responded to all the haters and trolls last night with a tweet in which she basically said that she doesn’t give a damn about what people say and that she is very proud of her cameo.

She also said that doing these dance numbers is her personal choice and that they make her feel empowered.


The song’s lyricist and choreographer, Osman Khalid Butt, who is also part of the film cheered on Mehwish for her ‘I don’t care’ attitude.

Butt also defended Mehwish admist the backlash.

He also requested people to not “hurl obscenities & vicious abuse their way.”
