These Celebrities Standing Up Against Mahira Khan's Slut-Shaming Are The Real MVPs

By Momina Mindeel | 23 Sep, 2017

Mahira’s new movie Verna, directed by the evergreen Shoaib Mansoor, has been making headlines these days and she’s adored by millions all around the world.


Recently, Mahira’s personal life choices have been making headlines

When some pictures of her and Ranbir Kapoor started making rounds, things blew a little out of proportion.


As soon as the pictures hit the internet, it set fire to the desi ghairat brigade 

Suddenly, internet ki izzat ke thaikaydaar began issuing statements against her beliefs 


Some even attributed her divorce to her apparently out of line lifestyle (smh)


However, there were some people who stood up for Mahira and her right to choose whatever the hell she wants


A number of famous names also came out in support of Mahira Khan 


Even from across the border

According to Parineeti Chopra, “today because of social media, everything becomes too big of a deal”, and to be honest, we could not agree more.


Meesha Shafi, showed her support in a cryptic Latin message

Nolite Te Bastardes Carborundorum is a Latin aphorism meaning “Don’t let the bastards grind you down.”


Sanam Saeed took a jab at all the haw haye-ing


Osman Khalid Butt threw some light on our double standards in his quintessential Obi way

Kyun kay, men smoking = health and lung problems

women smoking = loose character etc. etc.

Hain? Hain? Haina?


Ali Rehman Khan seemed to be in total agreement with Obi

Although we’d want for him to finish that sentence:


While Ali Zafar shared a heartfelt poem to show his support for Mahira


Hamza Ali Abbasi tried explaining the things and maybe kinda sorta overcompensated a bit

Although it was a little too unnecessary but hey, lets’s take what we get, he’s tryiiinggg.


Humaima Malick sent some love Mahira’s way


Urwa Hocane sent her best wishes for Mahira


As did Mawra Hocane

Who had herself become dragged in this silly “controversy” owing to her being a fan of Ranbir Kapoor


Newswoman Rabia Anum also shared a rather lovely quote in Mahira’s support


Not everybody needs to fit into one particular frame of morals and ethics because everyone has a right to live their life on their own terms. What’s worse is that the conversation around our double standards of holding women to a higher pedestal, in comparison to men, is shameful, as displayed by the countless memes being churned out to mock Mahira, right now.
