After Sonya Hussyn and Iffat Omar made a point (in Iffat Omar’s web show) about our actresses copying Hollywood and Bollywood, opting to dress up in gowns and maxis, veteran actress Sangeeta too, opened up about the same issue during Bol Nights With Ahsan Khan.
While talking about how actresses today focused more on their dresses rather than acting and how back in their time, actresses were dressed according to their characters, Sangeeta lent her two cents about award shows and the latest obsession of Pakistani actresses with gowns.
“I really feel weird when I see our heroines, our actresses copying Hollywood at award functions. They wear such short dresses; someone with a backless, someone exposing their legs. Why don’t they understand that they’d look absolutely gorgeous in their eastern wear,” said Sangeeta.
“It doesn’t look look good when someone leaves their own culture and adopts the others’,” added the veteran actress.
While Sangeeta made a point how gowns weren’t something that pleased her, Fariha Jabeen shared that she was alright with the change that came with time. “I think things need to change with time,” added Jabeen stating that we needed a fusion between modernity and our own culture.
Ending the show on a positive note of how actors should first focus on their acting skills and then anything else, the three ladies bid goodbye to their fans with a positive advise.
