Ever since the handsome hunk Yasir Hussain revealed his first look from his upcoming telefilm ‘Help me Durdana’, it became the talk of the town.

The actor will be essaying the role of a mother but most of the netizens thought that he will be playing a transgender and that irked quite a few people.

While many applauded the actor for choosing an unconventional character, many have also criticized him calling this an act of ‘cheap publicity’.

The ‘Karachi Se Lahore’ actor faced the heat when one of his followers pointed out why not a real transgender was hired to portray the role to which he replied:

Matlab aap ko job chahiye? (That means you want the job?)

Later, the actor took to his Instagram account to apologize and said that his role has nothing to do with humiliating or mocking anyone.

Have a look at his post below!

I just wanted to clear the misconceptions that some people have about my recent role. The images that you have seen over social media of me wearing a Saree are for a project in which I am playing the role of my mother. I am not playing the role of a transgender and by no means do I ever want to disrespect a gender that I have immense regard for. Once the show is out you will be able to understand the character better and will know that my role has nothing to do with humiliating or mocking anyone. We as public figures receive a lot of retaliation/negative comments and just because I chose to reply to a comment with a joke does not in any way mean that I have no respect for a certain gender. Other negative comments that we receive are never made a controversy out of so this also shouldn’t be. It is just a character intended for humour and nothing else. Hope this clears the doubts that some people have. #yasirhussain #durdana #respectforallgenders
