Looks like there is a bad actor campaign going on in the entertainment industry. It started with Hina Altaf terming Muneeb Butt a bad actor, then Mahmood Aslam calling Hamza Ali Abbasi a bad actor. Now Firdous Jamal has taken a dig at the biggest star of the industry Mahira Khan.
Firdous Jamal’s comments on Fayasal’s Qureshi’s show about Mahira Khan got the entire social media talking. The veteran actor was asked his opinion when Mahira’s picture was shown and he was of the view that
“She is not heroine material she is a mediocre model. She is not a good actress and not a heroine.”
He went on to make an ageist comment about the 34 year old star :
“She is old and in this age she should be playing role of a mother not heroine”
Faisal look very surprised on his comments. Before the Romeo Weds Heer actor could give his comments, Faisal mentioned that he wished this year Mahira Khan’s films become a hit as none of her films have not been a hit so far.
After this video went online many started backlash against Faisal and the network. The actor/ host took it to Twitter to address the grievance of Mahira’s fans :
Thats how he thinks kiya faraq parhta hey …she is super star and i was shocked too. I meant jo hit milni chahiye woh mily #binroye was hit but bari wali hit .khir i praised her 1000 times in my show no one shared that 🤔 https://t.co/xb5IYwukgs
