why did Mehwish Hayat refused To Work In Bollywood

Leading actress Mehwish Hayat says that many films were offered by Bollywood but she refused to accept them.

Mehwish Hayat, a beautiful, versatile, and talented Pakistani actress,  is one of the most accomplished actresses in the industry, has given the biggest hits in the Pakistani entertainment industry ever since its revival.

A versatile and talented Pakistani actress was recently spotted in an interview. Mehwish was talking about the opportunities and offers she got from Bollywood, mentioned, “I got many offers from Bollywood. There was a time when Pakistani cinemas were totally shut down, and like every other actor I had a dream to work in films but sometimes the story didn’t hit me and sometimes the character.”

The Load Wedding actress also says that For me, self-respect is very important. When you work in Bollywood, there is no self-respect, you don’t get to attend premieres or even promote the film. Even traveling is life-threatening there. So where there is no self-respect, regardless of more money or more fame, for me, it’s not worth the deal,”

Mehwish Hayat added that the way the Pakistani film industry has revived in the last few years, I did not feel the need to go to Bollywood. Apart from Bollywood, there are other major platforms and other industries in the world such as Hollywood, Iranian cinema, the Korean industry, and Netflix. Besides, as much respect, love, and work I am getting in my country, I don’t need to go to Bollywood and show my talent.

Mehwish Hayat has received the Tamgha E Imtiaz for her contributions to the industry and for being a vocal spokesperson for Pakistan around the world. The actress will be seen in a BBC show produced by Angelina Jolie while she is shooting for a Nadeem Baig directorial with Humayun Saeed in Pakistan.

Mehwish Hayat’s Punjab Nahi Jaungi became one of the biggest grossers in Pakistan and kept running in cinemas for more than a year.
