Momina Mustehsan is now a reknowned name in Pakistan Entertainment Industry. She became a sensation after appearing in acclaimed music show Coke Studio and now she has become somewhat of a brand. It is being said that with Huge power comes huge responsibility. It appears that Momina is taking this saying seriously.

She is striving and inspiring young women with her sincere efforts to address gender disparity in sports and in other aspects of life and is also the one to talk about genuine issues like depression etc publicly.

It all started when Momina was signed as the face of a popular soft drink brand and was shown as a footballer in one of their advertisements. Pakistani squash player Noreena Shams criticized the ad as she said that it would have been better if the football skills shown by Momina- who doesn’t know to play football would have been shown by a real female football player. If you want to break stereotypes then you should do it properly.
