Bollywood actor Pooja Bhatt is all praise for Pakistani women after they reviewed her feminist web series Bombay Begums.
“These are the real begums,” said Pooja, referring to the hosts of the web show Aurat Card: Reema Omer, Benazir Shah, Mehmal Sarfraz, and Natasha.
On Monday, Reema tweeted about how a scene on sexual harassment had moved her to tears.
“Pooja Bhatt’s final speech in Bombay Begums about women’s solidarity and holding sexual predators to account had Mehmal and I in tears.”
