'Pakistani Aishwarya Rai' lashes out on comparison
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, former Miss World, is celebrated for her exceptional beauty, captivating features, and remarkable charisma. Her extensive body of work spanning several decades has solidified her status as a prominent and well-respected figure.
Several times, many women, including Bollywood actress Sneha Ullal and other content creators were compared with Aishwarya for having similar features as the former Miss Universe. Recently, a Pakistani-Australian entrepreneur was spotted in a video, which went viral on social media, due to her resemblance to the "Guzarish" actress.
Kanwal Cheema is a Pakistani-Australian tech entrepreneur. According to netizens, she is a doppelganger of Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
One cannot simply deny her resemblance to Aishwarya. However, Kanwal, expressed herself in a recent video where she said she did not like being compared with someone else.
"A video has been circulating on social media, where I am being called Pakistani Aishwarya Rai," she said in the video. "I believe Aishwarya is an accomplished person, and it is not fair to her as well to compare her with anybody else."
Kanwal is the Founder and CEO of a charity app called My Impact Meter. She came to Pakistan in 2020, to promote her company in the country.
Bringing forth her own concerns, she explained that she is annoyed with such comparisons.
"There is a lot more about a woman than just her looks, I don't want to be known as the copy of someone," she said in the 1 minute 30 seconds video.
"Women are reduced down with their looks, what and how they wear, and I think this is very unfair, a woman is a lot more than just her looks."
She thinks this is a right time to start this conversation that everybody is unique, people have their own identity, and people should not be just compared like that and even if they are, they should not be known for that. "Please stop it, such conversations are very shallow," she added.
