Veteran actor Firdous Jamal became the talk of the town a few months ago with his questionable remarks about Mahira Khan’s age.
Twitter is Furious at ‘Firdous Jamal’ For His Bizarre Comment About Mahira Khan
Apparently not, though. Firdous sahab is at it again and this time he has undermined another young and talented individual, none other than, Imran Ashraf. A video of an ARY News chat show has been circulating on social media in which the veteran actor is giving an interview along with legendary actor Munawwar Saeed. When asked which actor they believe has a bright future in the industry, Firdous called the younger lot, all of it, “models and showpieces”.
When the host gave examples of Imran Ashraf’s role as Bhola in Ranjha Ranjha Kardi, Firdous claimed that “It wasn’t a spontaneous performance, but only pretension. He was acting, not behaving. Many people have outperformed such characters but unfortunately you haven’t seen those precious acts. I don’t want to criticize any individual here, but sadly acting is turning into a fashion these days. The fact is that the two professions are polar opposites as modeling is self projection, while acting is self negation,” Firdous replied.
In response to Firdous’ comments, Imran Ashraf replied humbly that he respects Firdous Jamal and his opinion. The actor also requested his fans to not pass harsh comments.
That’s sweet of Imran but it’s kind of hard to not call Firdous sahab out for his consistent and irksome criticism that’s not befitting of an actor of his stature. What do you think?
