Islamabad: Bollywood actress Nargis Fakhri’s advertisement on the front page of leading Pakistani Urdu newspaper Jang has created a stir over social media where people have condemned it by calling the advertisement “cheap” and “absurd”.
Many, including journalists, took to Twitter to condemn the “obscenity” of the ad that simply shows Nargis lying down with a phone in her hand while donning a red dress, the Express Tribune reported.
Pakistani investigative journalist Ansar Abbasi was the first one to condemn the ad on the micro-blogging site while others later joined him.
Here’s what they have tweeted:

@AnsarAAbbasi you are right, her beautiful body curves have nothing to do with 3G phone and its “cheap price.” I fully agree with you dear

Kadar Khan: @AnsarAAbbasi Front page ad looks absurd but corruption, loot and plunder of the government is acceptable.
