Veteran actress Nadia Jamil has always raised issues on women empowerment in the country. Taking to twitter, the actress disclosed her thoughts on the beauty standards set by the society.

She wrote: “As women, we are conditioned to idolise a much colonised, stereotyped image of beauty. Being in the business of narrating stories, it’s not always easy but so essential to ask people to challenge these stereotypes,” Jamil said.
