Since common people seem to assume that only little girls would be interested in Barbie, Twitter out rightly challenged that idea by soon starting a trend of characters they know would show up to the first screening for the tickets. For Pakistanis, even some politicians they know would definitely love the movie!

Saying that we’re excited is completely underestimating our feelings. Just know that we’re counting down the days till next summer in 2023 when the movie releases worldwide!
