Another day, another smoking video of Mahira Khan but the same old reaction. The video has gone viral on the internet and the actress, who is currently promoting her film Verna, is being called all kinds of names. Trollers have accused Mahira of being cheap and vulgar and for endorsing smoking for women. Her fans in Pakistan don’t need an actress like her to be the role model. Huh! The video comes on the heels of reports of Mahira’s chat at BBC Hardtalk, where she spoke about the pictures of her smoke break with Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor.
The actress confessed that she felt violated when the pictures became viral and smoking a cigarette became a national topic and debate. She was left numbed with all the judging and hurling of all kinds of tags that came her way post the incident. The actress had just put all of it behind her when here she is, with another video of a smoking break at en event she recently attended, being talked about for all the wrong reasons.

Only this time, we hope the actress comes out with a strong and stern statement to shut all those who are passing comments on her. No one has the right to demean a woman for the choices she makes and Mahira Khan has the right to live her life the way she wants, without being apologetic about it. It is high time trollers stop scrutinizing an actor’s personal life and making their opinions basis what they do in their off-duty time. Period! On the work front, the actress with whom Indians fell in love with after watching her in Humsafar with Fawad Khan and then in Raees with Shah Rukh Khan is shooting for 7 Din Mohabbat In and Maula Jatt 2.
