She said that it felt like yesterday when the president told her that he was proud of her. “The past year has made me much stronger and I shoulder the responsibility that comes with the honour. I’ll make sure that I continue to make my country proud. Thank you to all those who have supported me & those that have never failed to remind me each day of this moment.”
In 2019, Hayat received the Tamgha-e-Imtiaz for her efforts in Pakistan’s film industry. She dedicated her award to all the girls in the country who have a dream.
