Mahira Khan Following Firdous Jamal’s distasteful comments regarding Mahira Khan have started a debate on social media. Not only the veteran actor has come under the line of fire for his ageist remarks but rightfully so. Mahira Khan, is a superstar an international icon.
In fact Mahira Khan, is one of those rare Pakistani actresses who have dared to defy stereotypes with the roles they have taken upon. She is a wonderful human being one who is true to her work, her causes and has always received loved from her audiences for who she is.
Following what Mahira has been for all others, a support and a great friend and a humble human being, the industry has come out in support for Khan, calling out veteran actor Firdous Jamal for making such distasteful comments.
She’s quite aged as well and we don’t have heroines at this age, they only play the characters of mothers”, added the 65-year-old actor.
First of all, “Heroine stuff” just sounds weird.
Moving on from that, can we please get rid of this dated idea of having ‘heroines’ from a specific age bracket? The fact that are our male actors not viewed with the same scrutiny is an argument we should not have to make in 2019.
