Adnan Siddiqui (2)

Adnan Siddiqui is a famous actor, producer, and businessperson. He became popular with his first show, “Uroosa,” in 1994, and has been successful ever since. He’s now a producer and owns many businesses. Adnan is talented in many ways. His charming personality and style have made him quite popular, resulting in friends from all parts of the industry.

A few days ago, he was invited as a guest on Nida Yasir’s Shan e Suhoor and made some uncomfortable comments. His comment even made Nida shift a bit in her seat.

Adnan’s Misogynistic Comparison Of Women and Houseflies

He started by making his intentions clear. He said that he didn’t wish to offend anyone with what he was about to say, but women are like houseflies. At this point Nida gasped and held her head, not ready for what was about to come next. He continued, “if you try to catch them, they will keep on flying away. However, once you settle and don’t move too much, they’ll come to sit on you themselves”.

Now this comment wasn’t just offensive, it was vulgar and disrespectful. The actor further stated, “When I was trying to catch the fly, it wasn’t coming into my hands. When I [sat back], it came and sat here.” After this, it became evident that Nida wanted to change the topic of the conversation.

Nida requested, “I don’t want such straightforward people on my live show,” responded Nida with a forced laugh. “Let’s move on to the next thing.”

Adnan’s comparison stems from dated concepts of women and a long history of objectifying the comparison of women with inanimate objects. Such as locked boxes and whatnot. With changing times and educated minds, it is high time certain actors think before they speak. With an already ongoing shift in Pakistan regarding gender equality and women’s respect, Adnan’s comment highlights the prevalence of misogyny.
