The death of Bollywood diva Sridevi led to a verbal spat o the internet. Sridevi, one of the most iconic figures passed away in Dubai due to a massive cardiac arrest. She was only 54 and the news certainly came as a shock for the entire world. Not just Bollywood, Pakistani artist too paid their tribute to the lady. The news was there on all social media platforms, however, it was the fans who had a heated argument. A lot of fans believed that there was no point in discussing her while thousand Syrians died in a bomb attack.
This is quite debatable but there is no point in entering into such a debate. Famous people tend to generate more attention, which does not mean that innocents dying in different parts of the world are less important. Whatever is happening in Syria, is totally condemnable.
What we need to understand here is the importance of life. People who have contributed to the society through their work gets all the attention. Only because we do not have friendly relations with our neighbors does not mean we should behave as if it does not matter. Pakistani entertainment industry has been long influenced by Bollywood. Our actors have gone across the border to work in their movies. In fact, her last movie featured two of our artist.
She worked with Sajal Ali and Adnan Siddique in the movie MOM. Sri Devi and Sajal’s performance received great reviews from the critics. Sajal Ali became too fond of the actor and mentioned that she has found her second mother in Sri Devi.
We need to Learn.
The news is of importance for an entertainment platform. The on-going war in Kashmir is important to the entire world but you can’t expect an entertainment platform to talk about Kashmir, Burma or Syria. The platform is built to promote the ongoing news in the entertainment industry. If people want news on the global affairs than there are news sites where you can get all these updates.
Indians Called Kapil Sharma A Traitor For Hosting The PSL Zalmi Night
Cricket and entertainment industry are the only two platforms where Pakistan & India actually come together. It’s not the first time that any Bollywood actor has attended a PSL ceremony or a match. Last year, Sonam Kapoor came all the way to Dubai stadium on a special invitation from Javed Afridi. Unfortunately, she couldn’t enter the stadium due to some restrictions by PCB.
Chitrangada Singh attended the first PSL
Sanjay Kapoor attended PSL ceremony yesterday.
Kapil Sharma hosted the Zalmi Night.
Javed Afridi hosted the dinner for his team and supporters a day earlier in Dubai. The night was hosted by Bollywood’s top comedian Kapil Sharma. However, it didn’t go down well with the Indian fans. This Indian journalist slammed Kapil for hosting the event.
A desperate Kapil Sharma whose arrogance and bad behaviour with colleagues in drunken state have royally screwed his career in India, promotes Pakistan Super League’s Peshawar Zalmi team for quick bucks.
This is horrible at a time when Pakistani terrorism is at its peak. pic.twitter.com/70geZwxZnF

The fans soon started cursing Kapil for doing so …
He was not only present there but he was acknowledging the same with his claps.

He needs money because his movie didn’t do well on the box-office
His film 'Firangi' was a big flop. He has to earn money from somewhere. Having said that,there are better ways to do that.

Is aadmi ko India ka President banado!
Uske promote karne se PSL ko aur bhi publicity milega jisse aur bhi zada profit hoga jisse pakistan ki economy badhegi aur uss paise se pakistan ceasefire violation karega!

He is a poor guy, all he has is Pakistani media!
Leave him alone. He rose to fame, considered himself to be great and was shown his place. Now his only hope is that Pakistanis will accept him. Poor guy.

However, there were few sane people out there.
A desperate Sonam Mahajan tries to defame Kapil Sharma when he promotes a sport event but cannot ask her masters such as Modi to stop trade with them. Such a shame miss attention seeker

There is no point of spreading hatred among the fans. Such media personalities are the reason why there is so much intolerance among the people. They are the gatekeepers of our society and rather than doing hate-speech they should try to neutralize the situation.
Hijab Model Amena Khan Pulls Out Of L’Oreal Campaign Over Anti-Israeli Tweets, Fans Believe She Didn’t Have To!
French fashion giants L’Oreal launched the first ever shampoo campaign for women wearing hijab. They chose Amena Khan, leading British hijab model as the face of the campaign. This was a huge step in the market and was widely appreciated by the people. This campaign was breaking stereotypes as no brand has ever taken a step in a European market before. However, Amena Khan pulls out of L’Oreal campaign after days of its launch over some anti-Israeli tweets she made years ago.
Besides being a mother she is a known YouTube vlogger, co-founder of Ardere Cosmetics, designer of her own line of headscarves.
Khan Apologizes To Her Fans For The Mistake She Made Years Ago
— Amena (@amenaofficial) January 22, 2018
However, Fans Believe She Didn’t Have To Apologize For Stating Some Facts!
The Best One Came For Jeremy Mclellan
So she’s apologizing AND stepping down? Why apologize? The tweets “do not represent the message of harmony that I stand for”? The enemy of harmony is oppression, not tweets pointing out the oppression. https://t.co/0V98x42Efs
— Jeremy McLellan (@JeremyMcLellan) January 22, 2018
If you sincerely believe you were wrong, by all means, apologize. Apologizing to get out of trouble NEVER works. EVER.
— Jeremy McLellan (@JeremyMcLellan) January 22, 2018
Others Too Shared The Same Opinion!
You shouldn’t be apologising for anything. I don’t see people demanding @GalGadot to apologise for the things she has said regarding that issue. You have only spoken the truth and don’t stand down from the campaign!! Please, you have no need to!! Be strong in shaa allah ❤️
— Hana (@SyedaHanaPT) January 22, 2018
Please don’t apologize for speaking the truth. Took me a long time to understand what was going on with palestine and Israel however when I finally did it was a no brainer. Please stand by your values. Explain if you must but don’t stand down.
— Aasiyah Santiago (@AasiyahSanti) January 22, 2018
I feel very sad that this has happened. You've done great work with L'Oréal ad campaign. You shouldn't have to step down.

Sources Say That There Was a Lot Of Pressure From Certain Groups After This Campaign
The pressure from the paid pro-Israel trolls and bullies is overwhelming right now. They are blanketing the US and the internet with threats and censorship. If people don't stand up, Palestinians will disappear. #BDS Boycott, Divest, Sanction Israel now. #Loreal #Ahed #Jerusalem
— Maggi Carter (@maggicarter) January 23, 2018
Although Some Fans Thought She Preferred A Brand Over Something Which Was Righteous!
Truly disheartening that you let your integrity shatter for the sake of your brand. Don't regret them but choose this opportunity to expose the truth. That's more important than some shampoo!
— Aisha (@AisshaAftab) January 22, 2018
L’Oreal Has Approved Her Decision
L’Oreal group, contacted by AFP, said it “approved” her decision.
“We appreciate the fact that Amena has apologized for the content of her tweets and for the reactions they may have aroused,” it said.
We should wait and see what Amena has to say on this issue. Was it due to the pressure or she didn’t mean what she wrote back in 2014. It’s still too early to judge her and question her reason for pulling out of the campaign in such a way.
