Mehwish Hayat is rubbing shoulders with any semblance of Hasan Minhaj and the Internet went wild. Perhaps it was the way that she was truly rubbing shoulders with the Indian-American comedian.
It was such a joy to be invited by Emirates to represent Pakistan at the US Finals and to rub shoulders with global celebrities such as Hasan Minhaj, she gushed on her Instagram page.

On the work front, Hayat is being lauded for her humanitarian efforts as of late. She was recently named one of the five top Muslim women changing the world by international publication Muslim Vibe, for ‘advocating positivity and representation in Pakistan.”
The Chhalawwa star had an impressive month in terms of international recognition. Her speech about Islamophobia in pop culture went viral soon after she was awarded the Pride of Performance by Norwegian Prime Minister, Erna Sol berg.
