The Pakistani entertainment industry is full of talented people who let their work speak for them. However, there are some celebrities who rely heavily on controversies to gain public attention. These celebrities also complain about public criticism directed at them, but they continue to give the public something to criticise! The truth is that such celebrities want to remain in the news in some way. We’ve all heard that controversy sells, and it’s not the best, but it’s certainly the quickest way to get attention. Anything controversial quickly goes viral on social media, and the fallout keeps the celebrity in question in the news for weeks!
Very often, before a new project is released or a celebrity feels that they are no longer in the news, they make statements or post pictures that they know will be deemed controversial. So, while the public is frequently blamed for being too judgmental, the fact is that many celebrities create controversies on their own. It is not difficult to be non-controversial; many celebrities have done so for years; therefore, anyone who is controversial is usually doing so on purpose!
There are some Pakistani celebrities who are more controversial than others right now. The following are some of those celebrities:
Aamir Liaquat deserves to be at the top of this list for obvious reasons. This man will go to any length to gain attention. Because of his obnoxious behaviour, he has received attention that most people would gladly refuse! Apart from his weddings and statements about his ex-wives, even doing something as simple as distributing food to the needy is criticised. He wants to stay in the news, so whenever he isn’t, he gives people something to talk about.
The public loves to despise Aamir Liaquat, and he clearly enjoys attention, even if that attention is negative. Even mainstream media outlets pay attention to him because controversy sells, and Aamir Liaquat profits from it more than any other Pakistani celebrity!
We understand why someone with limited talent, such as Aamir Liaquat, needs to rely on controversies to stay in the news. He is also the type of celebrity who is unconcerned about his reputation, so he has nothing to lose.
Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar rose to prominence as a result of his recent drama Mere Pass Tum Ho. And it wasn’t until the success of this drama that he began giving interviews. Many people considered his views on women and men, in particular, to be highly controversial once he began giving interviews. So much so that some of the leading actors asked production companies to ban him. A writer known for his powerful dialogue writing skills was suddenly in the news for all of his controversial and frequently objectionable statements.
He’s also one of the few controversial Pakistani celebrities with a large fan base! While many people are critical of his thinking, there are also those who support him.
He is one of the entertainment industry’s most talked-about and divisive figures. So much so that most talk show hosts have a question for him and everyone has an opinion on him. Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar does not let criticism stop him from speaking his mind, and every time he does, he receives the same type of criticism.
Hania Aamir has always lived her life and liberally showcased it on social media, unconcerned about how people might react to some of the content that they find objectionable. Hania Aamir appears to be okay with sharing controversial content, from her affair with Asim Azhar to her most recent objectionable video with a friend. She took a break from social media a few weeks ago, but as soon as her new drama Mere Hamsafar premiered, she was back in the game!
Although Hania has frequently expressed her displeasure with people who criticise her, it is clear that Hania uses controversial content to attract attention. Many people find her clothing choices to be controversial, and she doesn’t seem to mind.
Hania Aamir performs well and has a pleasant appearance. She doesn’t need to ‘promote’ herself through these squabbles, but she does! We’ve seen Hania do everything to get the public’s attention, from fake crying to fake engagement announcements! We expect more from someone who has so much more to offer than the controversies for which she is famous.
Amna Illyas is one of those talented celebrities who are constantly in the news due to controversial statements or daring photoshoots. She is well-known for making politically incorrect statements in interviews, and some of her videos have sparked considerable controversy. Amna is aware of the potential for controversy with her videos and statements, but she does not hesitate to post them. She has also made headlines for defending many of her controversial videos, such as the one in which she hit a young boy while doing a Tik Tok challenge.
Amna, like many of the other celebrities on the list, enjoys the attention she receives. Her way of staying in the news is to be controversial! Even though Amna appears to be an intelligent and talented person, the way she enjoys stirring the pot is extremely disappointing.
Feroze Khan became a controversial celebrity when he announced that he was leaving showbiz to pursue Islam, only to announce a few weeks later that his’sheikh’ had allowed him to resume his showbiz career! People obviously expected him to choose certain types of roles and stories that were more in line with his new ideology. However, nothing changed, and Feroze Khan received a lot of criticism every time he was seen in public wearing clothes that were inappr**opriate for someone who had declared to walk on the right path.
His recent photos and videos with Ushna Shah sparked controversy because the two were a little too close for comfort. Soon after, it was revealed that Ushna and Feroze were collaborating on a drama. His ‘lea**ked’ video of him drinking something from a bottle wrapped in paper recently went viral and was criticised. As it turned out, this was just another publicity stunt by the actor, who has been relying on controversies to promote his projects for years!
Feroze Khan is also a contentious celebrity because, despite playing the lead role in some of the most popular dramas, his acting abilities have been called into question by the public on multiple occasions! Many consider him to be an overrated actor, but there are also those who watch dramas solely because of him. Feroze Khan is becoming one of those celebrities who will go to any length for attention, which is unfortunate.
Faryal Mehmood has been embroiled in controversy since the beginning of her career. She did not hold back when responding to Sonya Hussyn and Sohail Javed after their first project together, and Faryal has proven that she is not afraid to speak her mind, even when it is inappr**opriate. She made a remark about Hareem Farooq’s weight on one of the talk shows, and she is still unapologetic about it.
Her daring dance videos and outfits frequently elicit more criticism than anything else. She has also been seen arguing with users in the comments section. Faryal Mehmood is a contentious figure because she refuses to conform to social norms. She recently displayed her tattoos on a show despite knowing that tattoos are not widely accepted by the general public.
Faryal despises it when people criticise her, but she continues to post videos that she knows will elicit criticism! She has stated numerous times that her life is nobody’s business and that she is unconcerned about the controversies.
