During a recent interview, actor Adeel Hashmi spoke out about his horrific experience of sexual abuse in a 1980s secondary boys school with renowned makeup artist, entrepreneur, and philanthropist Masarrat Misbah.

“I was in grade 7 or 8, and because I was in a public school, my class had many students who had been failing for a couple of years,” Hashmi revealed in a heartfelt interview. Since I had just been promoted from grade 6, they had been in the same class for years, so they were much older than me.

“I wasn’t large or tall either. I am extremely timid, almost like a cross between a cat and a mouse in terms of temperament. And these eight or ten students would pick on me,” the well-known person recalled. “I can tell you about one incident that happened around that time, but I probably won’t tell you everything, and I might cry a little bit in the middle. In the seventh grade, I experienced sexual assault.

When this wasn’t a [widely accepted] idea, they would sexually abuse me. This is a school for guys alone. Hashmi recalled that “no teacher, no elder, my brother, or my parents could do anything.”
The actor revealed that he struggled to find the guts to talk about his experience with his parents and professors since he was unsure of how to handle the matter. “I only recall once telling my brother that these hostel kids are bullying me, and I wonder if I should tell our father about it,” he stated. And he said, “No, you have to figure it out on your own.”

In addition, Hashmi stated that this incident was only one of many that he had experienced. In contrast to the common desire for people to relive their childhood, he is grateful that those days are in the past and doesn’t want to think about them ever again.

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.

Aiza Awan recently appeared as a guest on the PSL special show ‘Har Lamha Purjosh. She actively participated in enjoyable activities and openly responded to the innocent questions asked by host Najeeb-ul-Hasnain.

During a segment, Awan disclosed that it is indeed accurate that the majority of her budget is allocated to travel expenses. When questioned about her most opulent journey, the actress highlighted Europe and revealed that she has extensively traversed the majority of the region.

When questioned about whether she has stopped portraying the conventional damsel in distress characters in movies, the actor of ‘Tere Bina Mein Nahi’ responded with a straightforward “no.” Due to my exclusive focus and extensive experience in this genre, it has become my area of expertise. As a result, I have developed a high level of proficiency in portraying emotions, particularly crying. Therefore, I have gained a deeper understanding of those characters and have developed a certain level of enjoyment for them.


Furthermore, Awan revealed that novice performers typically arrive on the sets early and depart late; however, she acknowledged that this practice is not wholly unjustified, as one needs to exert great effort during their initial phase of striving.

Aiza Awan’s most recent acting role was in the popular drama series ‘Tere Bina Mein Nahi’, where she appeared with renowned actors Shahzad Sheikh and Sonya Hussyn.
