The actress broke her silence in a statement recently!
Bollywood actress Nargis Fakhri’s advertisement on the front page of leading Pakistani Urdu newspaper Jang created stir over social media where people have condemned it by calling the advertisement ‘cheap’ and ‘absurd’.
Many, including journalists, took to Twitter to condemn the ‘obscenity’ of the ad that simply shows Nargis Fakhri lying down with a phone in her hand while donning a red dress, the Express Tribune reported.
Pakistani investigative journalist Ansar Abbasi was the first one to condemn the ad on the micro-blogging site while others later joined him.
Reacting to the growing outrage, the actress stated, “I've been with Mobilink as their brand ambassador for the last 3 years and there has never been an issue like this. I was unaware that they would consider using this visual for a mainstream newspaper ad - an Urdu daily as it was never meant to be. As a model or celebrity, I have always believed in using my persona to help further a brand's communication but never to have it used where I end up being objectified for my looks. Culturally too, my team and I are aware and respectful of what visuals work for what mediums, markets and audiences and hence given the brand's firm penetration in the Pakistan market, we left it upto their expertise to use the images appropriately.”
