An advertisement appearing on the front page of a leading Pakistan daily, featuring Bollywood actress Nargis Fakhri, has been condemned by many, including  journalists.

The advertisement, which was for Mobilink (Pakistan Mobile Communications Limited), showed Nargis lying down in a red dress with a phone in her hand.

On December 17, Nargis, who is the brand ambassador for Mobilink, had tweeted out to her Pakistani fans asking them to ‘get ready for a big surprise’:




Pakistani investigative journalist Ansar Abbasi was the first one to condemn the ad and expressed his displeasure over ‘obscenity’.







While some criticised the ad, others asked people to focus on bigger problems.



And how could Twitteraties not make fun of it? It followed soon.
