“Does she getting the award on account of her services or for maintaining a relationship with one leader of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) Karachi’s chapter?”, added in a tweet.
مہوش حیات کو تمغہ امتیاز دینے کے اعلان پر شوبز انڈسٹری حیران
کیا مہوش حیات کو تمغہ امتیاز اسکی خدمات کی وجہ سے دیا جارہا ہے یا کراچی کے کسی پی ٹی آئی رہنما سے تعلق ہونے کی وجہ سے ؟ جانئےhttps://t.co/tFEBzm9AiC
