False pregnancy news: Mehreen Pirzada to take legal action

Actress Mehreen Pirzada has been raising awareness about egg freezing. In an attempt to sensationalize her decision, some YouTube channels have deliberately misreported it as Mehreen getting pregnant before marriage. The actress has now warned the guilty media houses of immediate legal action if they don't withdraw the false reports.

In a long social media post, she opined that the media is supposed to be responsible and diligent. "Just to sell news with fake and incorrect information is not only immoral but illegal too. My post was to educate such people and l dared to share a very personal decision for social awareness (sic)," she wrote, adding that she wants young women to take the right decisions by being aware of egg freezing.

Mehreen further wrote, "STOP and REFRAIN from spreading fake rumours otherwise I am here to respond with legal action. My audience, fans and family support me and give me the confidence to speak and share anything that helps to create awareness on this topic or any other topic that is looked down upon as a taboo so that innocent people can’t be misled by false reporting to the society (sic)," she added.
