nadia hussain mahira khan

What took the internet by storm over the weekend was debate over whether or not veteran actor, Firdaus Jamal’s opinions on Mahira Khan should be respected.

Firdaus Jamal, on a show with Faysal Quraishi, had a controversial thing or two to say when he was shown Mahira Khan’s photo in a segment.

Calling the actress mediocre, here’s what he said:

I just wanted to say that Mahira is not a heroine. At this age, she should be playing the role of a mother.

While some actors like Veena Malik have shown support for Firdaus Jamal’s statements, many industry stars including Osman Khalid Butt, Mawra Hocane, Humayun Saeed, Faisal Kapadia, and others have strongly condemned it.

Among them is also the supermodel Nadia Hussain who has, without even mentioning Firdaus Jamal, slammed him with an open kickboxing challenge.

The show host Faysal Quraishi took notice of the backlash, of course.

Taking to Twitter, here is what he wrote to defend himself from the fire.

Calling Firdaus Jamal’s remarks “unnecessary” and uncalled for, he continued:

However, during the show Faysal had only seemed to add more fuel to the fire.

Do you think it is acceptable for influential personalities to comment on each others age and demean them like this?
