Maya Ali just turned 32 and to celebrate her big day, the actress hosted a Holi-themed birthday party in Lahore. Clad in a white shalwar kameez and a colorful chunri dupatta, the Mann Mayal star looked beautiful on her birthday.
Her Pehli Si Muhabbat co-stars and friends, Hassan Sheheryar AKA HSY and Hina Afridi were also invited to the celebration. Designer Mohsin Naveed Ranjha and celebrity photographer/stylist Azeem along with the Munshis from Galaxy Lollywood were also spotted.
As the theme suggests, we could see colors all around them. From playing with colors and water guns to eating desi food like gol gappay and BBQ, the celebrities had a great time last night. Let’s take a look at the photos.
Maya Ali and friends receive flak
Photos and videos from the event have made several rounds on the internet, with netizens criticizing Maya Ali and her friends for adopting Indian culture.
Some called out the hypocrisy of Pakistani celebrities for asking others to stay indoors and follow SOPs, while they themselves are throwing parties amid the 4th wave of coronavirus.
Meanwhile, others criticized them for adopting Hindu rituals and traditions. They did not seem happy with the entire concept.
Our stars either lean towards Western ideals, or they shift entirely towards Indian culture. Are they trying to be wanna-be liberals or have they forgotten their identity as Pakistanis?
