Islamabad, Sep 23 : Popular Pakistani actors like Ali Zafar, Humaima Malick, Mawra and Urwa Hocane have lent support to Mahira Khan, who was trolled social media over a leaked photograph where she can be seen smoking.

In the image that surfaced online, Mahira can be seen smoking alongside Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor. Soon after the photograph went viral over social media, a lot of people started slamming Mahira for smoking and wearing a short dress.

However actors from the Pakistani film industry took to Twitter to extend support to Mahira and slam her haters.

“Every woman has the right to make her own choices in life (as long as she’s not hurting anyone else) just like we men do. How we react defines our own character. Choose wisely, for we shall be judged,” Ali said in a handwritten note while tagging Mahira.

Humaima tweeted: “Ok. So now you can’t date anyone, can’t smoke, can’t go out , can’t wear what you want to just because you are a celebrity. More power to all artist and girl. Mahira Khan live your life your way.”

Mahira, who made her Bollywood debut with “Raees” earlier this year that had superstar Shah Rukh Khan in the lead role, also found support from Mawra and Urwa among others.

“Strength your way! Mahira Khan,” Mawra posted on Twitter.

Urwa wrote: “Stay stronger Mahira Khan! Love and power your way.”

Actor Osman Khalid Butt shared a photograph of himself smoking along with a friend and wrote: “F**k your double standards.”

Singer Momina Mustehsan also came out in support of Mahira and tweeted: “Jesus. Can we please give Mahira Khan a break?! Why are we so quick to judge and attack?! Especially if it’s a woman in question. It’s her life!”

Actor Ranbir Kapoor has said the notion of masculinity has to be changed to empower women.

Ranbir said this on Thursday while interacting with the media along with Deepika Padukone, Shabana Azmi, and Manish Malhotra.

Ranbir and Deepika walked the ramp for designer Manish Malhotra, in an event organised by Shabana Azmi’s Mijwan Welfare Society.

On asking his idea of empowering the women of the country and securing equal rights for them, Ranbir said: “I think firstly, we have to change the notion of masculinity.”

“I think the idea which we have in our mind about masculinity… if we could change the feeling of entitlement then that’s the big thing,” he said.

Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone walked the ramp together at Mijwan 2018.

“Once we do that, we should provide a platform to encourage citizen of our country, especially to girls and the women. It will then be a great start and I think Mijwan Welfare Society is just about that,” Ranbir added.

Speaking on his experience of walking the ramp with his co-actor and ex-girlfriend Deepika Padukone after so long, Ranbir said: “I think the biggest thing is we have come together to walk for Mijwan Welfare Society. That is the bigger picture here so it’s always wonderful to walk for Manish with Deepika and for Shabana aunty and everybody concerned with Mijwan Welfare Society.”

When Deepika was asked regarding her experience of walking the ramp with Ranbir, she said: “It’s very exciting. This is for the first time I am walking the ramp for the Mijwan fashion show. I started off my career as a model. I walked the ramp many times but this was special. It felt genuine, real and connected.”

“I feel everyone behind the scenes has worked really hard in doing what they do. Not just putting the show together but you can see the work, effort, and craftsmanship,” said Deepika.

Ranbir will be seen next in the biopic of actor Sanjay Dutt titled “Sanju”, directed by Raj Kumar Hirani, and in “Brahmastra” which is directed by Ayan Mukherji.  IANS
