The industry saw a division on this controversy.
Lately, he has once again talked about his controversy about Mahira Khan when asked by the anchor Sheikh Qasim if he has changed his thoughts or they are the same regarding Mahira.
Talking about it he said, “What thoughts?, I have not said anything bad, I said that she should do character roles, she should do characterization. Who, according to us is a heroine, a small and little girl who is doing amusing things, dancing and singing, who is vivacious, looks youthful and innocent, I said now she doesn’t fit that criterion”
She should do character roles which doesn’t mean that she should become mother, or aunt but she can be a good wife, a good sister, a social worker. For us, 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.
Here is a link to the video where talked about it in detail.
