Popular Pakistani actress Mahira Khan who found herself in the middle of a controversy when her pictures with Ranbir Kapoor were leaked, has finally opened up about the whole incident.
When the pictures were leaked, many people took offence and even slut-shamed her for wearing a backless dress. She was also criticised for smoking in public.
Recently, in an event where she was announced as a brand ambassador of a leading cosmetic brand, Mahira broker her silence on this issue.
“Through the times of turbulence, through the joys, through the ups and downs, through the mistakes we make and all the success we get, let nobody… nobody’s opinion define who you are, And if anybody defines who you are, let it be you. Because including me and all the women out there, we’re all worth it!" said Mahira.
Last month, Ranbir Kapoor had released a statement saying, “I’ve gotten to know Mahira in a personal capacity over the last few months. She is somebody who I admire and respect, for her achievements and even more for the person she is. It is very unfair the way she is being judged and spoken about.”
Even Ranbir's father Rishi Kapoor reacted to the leaked pictures and released a statement.
"It is very unfair the way she is being judged and spoken about. What is also said is the inequality in judgment just because she is a woman. I request you to stop the negativity and move on with your beautiful god gifted lives. Peace and Love. PS: Both smoking and hate are injurious to health.," read his statement.
Mahira was last seen in Shah Rukh Khan's 2017 blockbuster Raees.
