Actor Mehwish Hayat’s dance moves have been lauded by many. However, she received criticism after she uploaded a video of her dance rehearsal at the HUM Awards.

Hayat was dressed in her pink and white exercise gear, which many people thought was “vulgar” and “revealing”. However, many of her fans took her side and said they enjoyed watching her dance.
Others pointed out that it was just the “rehearsal” and not the actual performance, wherein she wore a different outfit.

The actor’s dance partner, Ahsan Khan, danced with the same fervor. However, the choreography on Kaala Dooriyan left many people enraged, and some even said that Hayat was copying Indians.
Hayat, however, fired back at some of her haters on Twitter.
“It is my prerogative to wear whatever I so desire,” she told one of the Twitterati, who questioned her about choosing such an outfit.
She told the critics that she respected their choice in the same way she expected hers to be.
