Mahira Khan gets slammed by senior actor over age and profession, gives a befitting reply

Pakistani actress Mahira Khan is known for her outspoken nature. She was recently slammed by senior TV actor Firdous Jamal who in a recent interview to Diva Magazine made a comment on her ability to perform the lead roles. He said, "Ek toh uski age zyaada hai. Is age mein heroinein nahi hoti, maa ki kirdaar kiye jaate hain (She is ageing now and at this age, actresses play the role of mothers instead of heroines)."

His comments received a lot of backlash from the other actors after which the actress finally responded but smartly. She took to her social media account to take a dig at the actor by writing a long-handwritten not but did not name anyone. She thanked her colleagues and her fans who supported her and shared the letter on her Instagram handle. She wrote, "We are the present. What we do and how we do it, is our future. Thank you to all those who have come out to support me - I did not ask for it and that makes it even more special. 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."

Mahira’s post continued, "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.”
