Firdous Jamal’s Son Opens Up Over His Father’s Controversial Comments about Mahira

Veteran actor Firdous Jamal had targeted Mahira Khan for ageing. Speaking in a morning show, the actor said that Mahira Khan should do roles of a mother instead of a heroine. “Sorry to say, she is not heroine stuff. She is a mediocre sort of a model. She is not a good actress and not a heroine,” he said. He went on to say, “She is over aged. There are no heroines in this age. They play the role of a mother.

Firdous Jamal is being condemned for these remarks. Several Pakistani celebs have come out in Mahira Khan’s support and called out Firdous Jamal for his ageist remarks. Since Firdous Jamal is not on social media to defend his remarks, his son Hamza Firdous has spoken up on his behalf. Taking to Twitter, Hamza Firdous said, “Firdous Jamal has given 45 years of sweat and blood to this industry. And that too without social media and only pure hardwork. Whereas today, many require branding and marketing, surgeries to stay top notch.” “This person doesn’t need to hold grudges! His work has proven him,” he wrote.

In another tweet, he said we should not shove everything under the rug of chauvinism and misogyny. “If he were a chauvinist by any standard, he wouldn’t have praised Sania Saeed, Saba Qamar and Mehwish Hayat in the same show,” he said.

Another day, another controversy. It’s sad how stars are calling each other out. Do senior actors not believe in mentorship and support? Does our industry, still in its fledgling years, not stand together as one? Why make controversial, hurtful statements on TV like this? And why at all are people still judging actresses by their age? Utterly sad. It’s also so sad that such episodes particularly happen frequently with #MahiraKhan. And she never retaliates. More power to her. 💪🏼 #yougogirl #repost @divamagazinepakistan ・・・ Veteran Tv actor #FirdousJamal criticises #MahiraKhan’s acting skills and calls her overaged in a recent interview with #FaisalQureshi for his show #SalamZindagi. Everyone’s entitled to their opinion, but we feel the seniors in the industry should be supporting our talent rather than put them down on national platforms. 🙏 Video by @aryzindagi
