Mehwish Hayat is rubbing shoulders with the likes of Hasan Minhaj and the Internet went berserk. Maybe it was the fact that she was literally rubbing shoulders with the Indian-American comedian.
The United States Open Tennis Championship was pretty eventful for the Pakistani actress. She was attending the event on behalf of Dubai’s Emirates airline.
It was such a joy to be invited by the @emirates to represent Pakistan at the @usopen Finals & to rub shoulders with global celebrities such as @hasanminhaj . Love his Netflix show & his outspoken opinions. @RafaelNadal ‘s victory was the cherry on the cake ! ❤️ pic.twitter.com/u9HNPmYakF

When she met the Patriot Act host right after her recent run-in with Priyanka Chopra’s husband Nick Jonas, fans went wild.

Maybe it was the Punjab Nahi Jaungi starlet’s fanbase going wild. Or maybe it was the fact they’re literally rubbing shoulders. Either way, we’re so loving this.
Keep it up Goddess!!

Some questioned why a Pakistani celebrity was at the US Open Tennis. Same reason the Actor-in-Law actress was awarded the ‘Pride of Performace‘ award in Norway. She’s that fab alright.
Why would someone invite Pakistan to us open ..flabbergasted.. there is not one paki tennis player on international stage ..

More on Hasan Minhaj
Indian-American comedian Hasan Minhaj was listed as one of Time’s ‘Most Influential People‘. He has his own show on Netflix called ‘Patriot Act‘ that tackles various social and political issues in America.
He started off as a stand-up comedian.
He initially worked on ‘The Daily Show‘ and his segments with Jon Stewart often went viral. In 2017, Hasan was featured as the speaker at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner and his special, Homecoming King received rave reviews.
Mehwish Hayat mentioned how she loved his ‘outspoken opinions‘. Hasan Minhaj is also one of the few South Asians that drew light to the Kashmir Dispute and abrogation of Article 370, revoking Kashmir’s autonomy.
