Fan ‘insults’ Saheefa Jabbar Khattak

Published

on

During a recent chat show appearance on a private news channel with Imran Ashraf, Saheefa Jabbar Khattak recalled an odd interaction with an individual who seemed more like a hostile follower than a fan.

“A lady came up to us… Imran, she made fun of me,” the “Log Kya Kahenge” actor said. She added, “We don’t think such women are decent; you come from the industry.”

But shortly after, the woman requested her for a selfie, in spite of all the prejudice directed at actors and women in the entertainment business. “But the weirdest part is that, as she was leaving, she asked, ‘Can I take a selfie with you?’ after insulting me for five minutes.” Jabbar

recalled.

While on the trip, Jabbar—who has been a vocal supporter of mental health issues herself—emphasized the significance of getting assistance for the same, but she also brought attention to the added costs of therapies, which the majority of Pakistanis cannot afford given the country’s current inflation rate.

To fulfill this demand, she proposed that powerful people create communities and safe spaces.

Jabbar has shown her mettle as an actor by giving consistently outstanding performances in serials like “Beti,” “Bhool,” and “Log Kya Kahenge.”

Despite having a stellar body of work to her credit, actor Sarwat Gilani recently discussed why she hasn’t been seen on TV in an appearance on a comedy show on a private TV channel.

She responded, “I think one should work hard but with less.”

“I really appreciate all of the love, respect, and affection that my audience has shown me,” Gilani went on. But please wait for me, I want my audience. I refuse to portray every character for them, be it Sakina, Shakeela, or Zulekha. What project I have coming up next is what I want people to be excited about.

“I’ve received feedback from fans frequently saying that they stop to watch me on screen because they think I must have picked a worthwhile project to work on,” the ‘Khasara’ actor continued.

Notably, Gilani last appeared in “Joyland,” the opening feature film from Pakistan that screened at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival in 2022, directed by Saim Sadiq.

Concurrently, she welcomed a baby girl into her family in December of last year, marking her third child with spouse Fahad Mirza.

I have to stop doing dramas and films. Momina Iqbal is leaving the entertainment industry.

Actor Momina Iqbal took to her Instagram stories earlier this week to post a few videos in which she humorously expressed her disappointment with the social media system, which she believes is a crucial factor in determining an actor’s value. She added that because she doesn’t have enough followers on her account, she won’t be given the opportunity to perform and should give up on the role.

With only one million Instagram followers, Iqbal posted, “I must not do any more dramas or films.”

Then she said, “People with less than a million Instagram followers shouldn’t work on dramas or films. The situation gets worse if they work for a long time yet still don’t have many social media followers.

“I have received at least 10 requests from people since this morning stating that I only have one million followers, which is a respectable amount and I need to put in more effort,” the “Ehsaan Faramosh” actor continued. Additionally, she bemoaned the fact that having a large following on social media accounts is more important than having a portfolio or experience.

“Don’t offer me any acting projects from now on because I have only a million followers,” Iqbal sarcastically stated, continuing to address the creators. I am considering giving up acting and pursuing something more significant in life, such as vlogging.

About her career, Iqbal was most recognised for her portrayal of Falak in the drama series “Ehsaan Faramosh,” which also starred Salman Saeed, Humayun Ashraf, and Mashal Khan. In the phenomenon drama “Samjhota,” she also had a major role.
