Emraan-Humaima’s lip-lock creates chaos in Pakistan
Another Pakitani starlet made her foray in Bollywood and she is none other than the ‘Raja Natwarlal’ actress Humaima Malick. Humaima’s lip-locking scene with Bollywood serial kisser Emraan Hashmi creates uproar in Pakistani. Released last Friday, ‘Raja Natwarlal’ opened with an average review has caused huge pandemonium in Humaima’s homeland. The conservative country disliked the fact that Humaima had an intimate scene with an actor who is not a Pakistani guy.
Pakistani media slammed Emraan
Hashmi and Humaima Malick on-screen chemistry, "With this kiss, Malick
joins the line-up of Pakistani female actors who have crossed the border to
bring infamy," said a media report.
Several people accused the actress of spoiling her nation's legacy. The actress
said that she had faced some backlash from the people of her motherland.
“I did face some backlash and mostly it was because "our" (Pakistan) woman was involved in a kissing scene and it was considered worse because it was with a guy who was not Pakistani,” said the actress in an interview.
She had asserted that women in her country were judged more harshly than men
and the backlash was largely due to the fact that she was kissing an Indian
man. She added that they fail to understand that she is only enacting a role.
"Our people have to understand I am playing a role," she stressed.
Malick plays a bar dancer who falls in love with a conman played by Emraan Hashmi. In the past, another Pakistani actress Veena Malik was targeted and fatwa was also issued against her for posing nude on a magazine cover page.
