Reham Khan always seems to be getting herself into trouble and some people are fed up.
Just recently she tried to discredit the amazing work done for the movie Cake by claiming the only reason it made it to the Oscar’s was that of the producer’s ties with Imran Khan.
Reham pretty much discarded the hard work of the people involved in the movie when she alleged that the Oscar Selection Committee chose the movie produced by Zulfi Bukhari because of his “influence” and it started a war with the movie’s cast.
Who says you can't have your 'cake' & eat it too?
Zulfi Bokhari friend of the PM now gets his film selected to be sent in as Pakistan's entry to the Oscar's too.

The cast of the movie, which includes actors like Aamina Sheikh, Sanam Saeed and Adnan Malik, are generally understood to have done pretty decent work in the movie. The film garnered rave reviews and Reham’s comments weren’t received well by people on social media. Even Adnan Malik responded to her.
Her words also did not sit well with Kamila Shamsie, who happened to be on the selection committee that chose to submit “Cake” in the Foreign Language Film Award category, representing Pakistan
I was on the selection committee. I had no idea (and wouldn't have thought it relevant if I had) that anyone involved was a friend of the PM. I just knew 'Cake' was the best movie in the running. https://t.co/Ydb1BV9NwF

By Kamila Shamsie’s tweet, “Cake” truly deserves to be a nomination for the Oscar’s, and it has nothing to do with the producer, Zulfi Bukhari’s, influence. She responded to Reham in a classy and appropriate manner, very becoming of what one assumes of Kamila.
Pakistanis were all for the clarification given by Kamila and her support of the movie.
glad merit remains your criterion but you do know this woman is acting in spite more than anything else

So difficult to do right thing in this insanely polarized world. Love ur matter of fact attitude…. just feel u keep such a low profile always.

People were really hating on the comment by Reham.
Don't worry Kamila, she's just a loser. She's no grace whatsoever and's been blinded by hatred & vengeance.

And of course, there were the usual comments over Reham’s mental health
These are a little salty tbh. One can disagree with her but like these comments may be a little too much if they come ALL THE DAMN TIME.
Forgive her please… she is not well #justpray

Others believe her stubborn is Reham’s biggest flaw that land her in controversy every now and then
@RehamKhan1 kitnee beizzati horahe hai but she is a dheet

It’s so nice to see Pakistani artists supporting other artists.
It’s a nice fresh breath of air and very different from the hate others like to spread. Let’s keep moving in the right direction.
