Pakistani celebrities have been sharing mixed reviews when the news of Esra Bilgic working in Pakistan as a brand endorser was out.The latest one was television actress Zhalay Sarhadi. In a recent interview, she spoke against Esra Bilgic being hired for a Pakistani mobile brand. “We have short term gains. If you have chosen Halima and made her a brand ambassador over here, it’s a slap to our faces. It’s an actual slap to our faces. Why are you borrowing a star from another country?”
