Mahira Khan breaks her silence on Firdous Jamal’s criticism

Pakistan’s most successful star Mahira Khan after getting embroiled in the news over veteran actor Firdous Jamal’s ‘sexist’ comments has finally spoken on the issue.

Talking to Instragram in a lengthy note, Mahira said: “As an artist I am proud of my industry. I’m grateful to my senior artists for paving the way for people like me and so many others. I am also proud of myself. In this journey of mine, I can proudly say that I have done what I thought was right and never succumbed to what others thought was right for me. That – I will continue to do. InshAllah,” she added.

“In a world full of hate, let’s choose to love. Let’s be tolerant of other people’s opinions and let our fight be against the mindset -that a successful woman is a scary thought. No it isn’t. It’s a beautiful and empowering one. Let us stop picking on one another so that this industry and our country thrives like no other,” she continued.

“I read somewhere that ‘Stardom’ in Latin means – thank you to the fans when it was lonely. Stardom it is then! Love and Gratitude, X,” she wrote ending the note.

Last week, veteran actor Firdous Jamal had unleashed havoc after he termed the ‘Bol’ actor as ‘overaged’ and ‘lacking goof acting skills.’

Soon after, many of the insiders had stepped forth coming to defend the superstar and voicing their love and support.
