The actor appeared in Faysal Qureshi’s morning show in which he said:

Mahira is overaged and actresses of her age usually play the role of mothers and not the main heroine.

He further added:

Sorry to say, she has no skills of being a heroine, she is just a mediocre level model.

Soon after the video went viral on social media, a number of Pakistani celebrities stood up in support of Mahira Khan and schooled the veteran actor for stating such blunt remarks.

We are the present. What we do and how we do it, is our future. Thank you to all those who have come out to support me- I did not ask for it and that makes it even more special. As an artist I am proud of my industry. I’m grateful to my senior artists for paving the way for people like me and so many others. I am also proud of myself. In this journey of mine, I can proudly say that I have done what I thought was right and never succumbed to what others thought was right for me. That – I will continue to do. InshAllah. In a world full of hate, let’s choose to love. Let’s be tolerant of other people’s opinions and let our fight be against the mindset -that a successful woman is a scary thought. No it isn’t. It’s a beautiful and empowering one. Let us stop picking on one another so that this industry and our country thrives like no other. I read somewhere that ‘Stardom’ in Latin means – thank you to the fans when it was lonely. Stardom it is then! Love and Gratitude, X
