Firdous Jamal made bold critic remarks for Mahira Khan, in Faysal Qureshi’s morning show. Veteran actor was quite brash and blunt when passing comments on Mahira who recently had no hits this year, not only did he question her acting skills, but further went on and bashed Mahira for being overaged and added actresses of her age usually play the role of mothers and not the main heroine.

‘Sorry to say, she is not heroine stuff. She is a mediocre sort of a model, is not a good actress and not a heroine,’

Was it Really Necessary?

His criticism shocked fans and industry people alike…

His Blunt remarks not only shocked the show host, but the audience, fans and even other actors in the industry.

This incident has now started a debate on social media and fan’s and celebrities are divided in to two, many believe that he should support stars of today’s era and give respect to their stardom and their fan following and some believe that he is right, however, he is senior actor and he has all right to express his opinion about young actors but the selection of words could be better on national television to avoid any kind of feud.

Mahirah Khan
Handwritten Letter

We are the present. What we do and how we do it, is our future. Thank you to all those who have come out to support me- I did not ask for it and that makes it even more special.

As an artist I am proud of my industry. I’m grateful to my senior artists for paving the way for people like me and so many others. I am also proud of myself. In this journey of mine, I can proudly say that I have done what I thought was right and never succumbed to what others thought was right for me. That – I will continue to do. InshAllah.

In a world full of hate, let’s choose to love. Let’s be tolerant of other people’s opinions and let our fight be against the mindset -that a successful woman is a scary thought. No it isn’t. It’s a beautiful and empowering one.

Let us stop picking on one another so that this industry and our country thrives like no other.

I read somewhere that ‘Stardom’ in Latin means – thank you to the fans when it was lonely.

Stardom it is then!
Love and Gratitude, 

Do you think it’s acceptable to make such negative remarks ?
Would this same sentiment be expressed were it a man instead of Mahira?
