“This is not our culture. Do you even like these item numbers in Pakistani movies?”

He continued and said, “This is the impact item numbers are making. I will keep on saying about this item song culture. I am begging to self correct yourself.”

Item songs objectify women and degrades them. Its against our culture, norms and religion. This is not the first time Hamza Ali Abbasi has spoken against item song culture. He believes these songs do not determine the success of a film.

“Its heart breaking and disappointing to see some brilliant Pakistani film makers still using item numbers to sell their films, he wrote this earlier on Twitter.

  • I totally agree, all the film producers should ban item number songs from their movie. Even I see any movie whether it’s Bollywood or Pakistani I forward that song and move on..
