Pakistanis divided over Kareena Kapoor advertisement
Sunday, 21st March 2010
Karachi billboards showing the current Bollywood actress have triggered a mixed reaction from Pakistani bloggers. Firdous Cloth Mills’ billboards are using Kareena’s pictures to advertise a recently launched line of summer suits.
“If Pakistani companies are hiring Indian models, it’s good for peace between the two countries — so have a big heart and develop a habit to accept good changes,” wrote Saira Hamza on the Fashion Iconz blog.
Many other comments on the blogsite, however, opposed the display of Indian film stars on Pakistani billboards.
“Pakistani models are far better than Indian models… why should we display Indians???” wrote Sarah. “This Indian fever is so really childish. We should support our own talent.”
