MEHWISH HAYAT’S INTERVIEW
Mehwish Hayat can be seen talking about her ideal partner in an interview on By The Way. When she is asked if she has met her ‘jeevansathi’ (life partner) yet, she says “Let me be honest, nahi mila. Iska ek reason ho sakta hai that I started off very early and made a name for myself in a very early age. What happens is that I don’t want a person to fall in love with me because I am Mehwish Hayat, but because of who I am as a person from within. Maybe somebody can unlock that door, I don’t know yet.
Talking about how her perfect man would look like, Mehwish said, “Has to have a good height. Thoda sa ucha lamba kad, ek swag hona chahiye.”
The interviewer then says that there is someone who is the ‘perfect bachelor’. Mehwish first asks who the man is and a few moments later asks, “Bilawal?”. The interviewer says “I didn’t say it.”
