Firdous Jamal discusses his disputed statement on Mahira, he is a popular Pakistani television, stage, and film actor. He began his career in Hindko drama and has since become a well-known person in Pakistan’s media industry.

When he made remarks about actress Mahira Khan, the actor became embroiled in a debate. In this dispute, the industry witnessed a divide.
Recently, when asked by the anchor Sheik Qasim if he altered his thinking or whether they were identical with Mahira, he spoke again about his disagreement with Mahira Khan.
He responded, “What thoughts? He talked about it. She ought to do characterising, I did not say anything wrong, I stated she must perform character roles. I mentioned today that she doesn’t match this condition, who’s a protagonist, a little and small girl who performs entertaining things, dances and sing, is alive, looks young and innocent,
She should do character role, not mother or aunt, but a nice wife, a decent sister, a social worker. “It should do a lot of character roles.” Fearful, he said.
He further said “For us, the heroine is a youthful girl, who is naughty, an immature girl, a happy soul who is moving here and there, jumping with joy, which itself is a wrong concept. Any good character is the real hero or heroine be it Mother or Some other person of substance”
