Couple of months ago veteran actor Firdous Jamal landed himself in hot water when he took a dig at Mahira Khan in a morning show. Jamal said that Mahira Khan is not a model material and she is too aged to star as heroin.
“I am sorry to say that Mahira is not heroine stuff,” he said blatantly. He adding that she is a mediocre sort of a model. She is not a good actress and not a heroine. She is old; one doesn’t play a heroine at this age but rather the role of a mother.”
Numerous actors came in support of Mahira and Jamal had to face a lot of criticism due to her remarks on Mahira Khan but recently in his interview, he tried to clarify his comments.
He clarified and said, “Nobody sees things technically and when I talk about things technically people mind it. However, I don’t have a personal grudge with anyone. I have never met that woman and I don’t even know her. I just know she lives in Karachi. I have never worked with her and I have not met her one to one. Somebody randomly asked me about her and I said yes she is a star but not an actress. She is a good model though.”
Explaining further he said Mahira is a model and models are usually more concerned about their looks rather than their acting.
