Mehwish Hayat is a name that needs no introduction. The talented actress is without a doubt one of the most accomplished entertainers in the Pakistani showbiz industry. Mehwish has been part of some of the biggest hits that helped in the revival of modern Pakistani cinema.
With such huge success, it comes as no surprise that Mehwish has earned worldwide recognition. However, unlike most other successful Lollywood stars, the Punjab Nahi Jaungi starlet never considered working in a Bollywood flick.
Mehwish’s name always comes up in the top Asian actresses list, so it is bound to happen that the actress may have been given enticing offers from across the border. But the actress revealed she is very much content to work in Pakistan only.
“I was already getting so much quality work in Pakistan that I didn’t feel the need. I received so much respect from my own country. 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 travelling 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,” said the Load Wedding actress.
