In today’s episode of celebrity wars, Sonya Hussayn digs at the Oscar winner Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy over her latest remarks.

A Walk Through Of The Situation 

If you cannot get the context of the situation, let’s do a walkthrough of Sonya Hussayn’s old interview back in 2018. She appeared on the After Moon Show hosted by Yasir Hussain on August 12, 2018. Along with Sonya, Asim Azhar also made an appearance on the show.

In one segment of the show, the host asked different questions from the celebrities. In one such question, Yasir asked Sonya; If she was Mahira Khan, which film would she not do: VernaRaees, or Ho Mann Jahaan? 

In response to the question, the actress responded Raees, with a No. Explaining,

“It was never my dream to work with Shah Rukh Khan. I dream that your character should be such that you are seen, and you’re not just a side character to a hero.”

Sharmeen’s Remarks

While the interview was three years ago, it seemed irrelevant to respond to such a statement.

Sonya’s Response To Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy

Sonya quickly responded to Obaid’s statement as she took to Instagram to clarify her stance on the situation in her Instagram story. As she wrote,

“Pulling one woman down while putting another up in full view of the public and talking about upbringing! Besides, the pandemic has given too much extra time to some people to “dis” others by taking things out of context. Had I been asked which of the films I would opt for, I’d have chosen “Verna.” Freedom of expression related to work is not disrespectful in any way. Ms. Chinoy, your choice of words, tone, and tenor does not behoove Academy Awards Winner, and lest you didn’t know, I have never been aspired to be Mahira. She is excellent in her own right, and I am on my own journey. Love x.”
