People exclaimed on social media that she got the Tamgha-e-Imtiaz because she is having extramarital affairs with the elites of Pakistan. Notwithstanding the fact, Mehwish Hayat replied to the bashers in the following words, “Debate all you like whether you think I deserve the award. Everyone is entitled to their opinions. I respect that. However, I draw the line when my character is questioned. I’ve been called a tawaif, a slut, a whore & much more so often that it has stopped affecting me.”
