From Wasim Akram to Shehzad Roy: Why are male Pakistani celebrities painting their nails?

Are you confused about the pictures of Pakistani men with painted fingernails going viral on social media? Well, to explain the posts this is actually all part of the Polished Man campaign, which aims to showcase a \’softer side\’ of our country\’s men and raise awareness regarding child abuse.

Recently, several Pakistani male celebrities joined the campaign. Wasim Akram, Bilal Ashraf, Adnan Siddiqui, Shahzad Roy, Humayun Saeed, Mikaal Zulfiqar, and many more painted their fingernails, took pictures, and posted their photos on their social media accounts.

Shaniera Akram, the wife of Pakistani cricket legend Wasim Akram, took to Twitter to shed light on the Polished Man campaign and raised awareness about the rampant child abuse cases in the country. In her post, she shared pictures of some of the most prominent males in Pakistan, who belong to different fields.

Shaniera captioned the tweet and said:

Some of the toughest men Pakistan has ever produced are showing their softer side & coloring one nail to represent the millions of children who suffer every day at an adult\’s hand. Our Pakistani heroes say, \’We WILL NOT tolerate child abuse in our country\’.

She further stated:

#PolishedMan campaign has been around for years. In 2020, due to the highest level of child violence to come out of Pakistan, celebrities & sporting stars have joined this international campaign to show their support for children suffering in silence from child abuse in Pakistan.

Shaniera concluded the Twitter series by encouraging other men to join the cause. She exclaimed:

Talking about Child Abuse is better than not talking about Child Abuse! We need to infiltrate people\’s homes in Pakistan with the necessary conversations around this topic. And if a man coloring his nail can spark a wave of awareness, then so be it! Man up. Color your nail today.

  • After these polished men painted their finger nails, they should also paint and show their softer side ( their behinds) with rainbow colours.
