This Ad Featuring Bollywood Actress Is Causing Outrage In Pakistan


A newspaper ad featuring US born Bollywood actress Nargis Fakhri on the front page has caused outrage in Pakistan for ‘being obscene’.

The Daily Jang has been accused of being like playboy after it printed pictures of Ms Fakhri looking sensual in a red dress and holding a phone in her hand.

Ms Fakhri was appearing in an ad for Mobilink (Pakistan Mobile Communications Limited), a GSM cellular operator in the country, which had launched four 3G phones.

Soon after the paper was publicised people took to Twitter to make their outrage known.

However media watchdogs in the country condemned the attack on Ms Fakhri

Others saw the funny side.

While some pointed out that the advertisers had gotten what they wanted from the photos.
