On Monday, the government of Pakistan unveiled the list of 127 citizens who will be honored with civil awards on 23rd March for their exceptional and distinguished service in various fields.

Among a few celebrities, the Load Wedding actress Mehwish Hayat will be awarded Tamgha-i-Imtiaz by President Dr. Arif Alvi this year and her fans just couldn’t hold their happiness.

Ever since the announcement was made, it became a topic of discussion on the internet and made quite a buzz all around the country.

Despite being in the industry for over a decade and giving us a number of successful TV dramas and movies, Twitteratis lost their cool when the news was announced and questioned the government’s decision.


However, it is so good to see that Mehwish Hayat is paying no attention to the haters and is focusing on her success.

While talking to Dawn Images, Mehwish Hayat said:

I was very humbled by the news that the President of Pakistan has decided to bestow this honour upon me. For me, I have simply been pursuing my passion and to be recognised in this way with one of the highest civil award’s is recognition that I must be doing something right.

She further added

I took the decision very early to remain in Pakistan and to focus on building our nascent industry and I am proud of my contribution. For the past five years I have been blessed with some of the biggest hits of Pakistani cinema.

She said:

But I can not take credit for this alone and as I receive the award on the 23rd (March), I will be sharing it with all the directors, co-stars, writers, technicians and even the makeup artists and spot boys who have contributed to this success.
