Everyone on social media knows about Khalil Ur Rehman Qamar’s controversial views on women and feminism, as well as the very bad things he said about Mahira Khan in April. He said that he would always “curse” himself for the “sin” he had done by giving her a very important part in his play Sadqay Tumhare. After a few months, the actor Resham has come to Khan’s defence and called out Qamar for making these comments.
Resham and Waseem Abbas were on Tabish Hashmi’s show Hasna Mana Hai on Sunday. Someone in the live audience asked the actors what they thought about Qamar during a Q&A session. Abbas praised his skills as a writer and the plays he had written. Resham, on the other hand, acknowledged his accomplishments but brought up the offensive comment he made about Khan by tweeting about how he was getting project after project even though he had abused a woman on live TV.
“I agree that, based on his work alone, very few people can write as well as he does. There are probably only one or two people who can write dialogue that good. I pray that Allah gives him more respect, but when I read on social media that he is after artists like Mahira Khan and that he doesn’t want to give her a “chance,” I think, “But you never gave her a chance.”
She used Abbas as an example of how she started in the business with the idea that “respect is the first of many ways to show love” and never talked to other artists differently.
“I’ve known for two years that he wants Mahira Khan and says he gave her Sadqay Tumhare. How did you make her feel like that? This was said by the channel and the person who made the show. You are a writer. As part of your job, you wrote a great script and sent it in. Sometimes, he ties his name to a big artist to get more attention. But who is it that he ties his name to? A woman,” said Resham.
The writer, who is very vocal about what he thinks on social media, has not yet replied to Resham’s comment. About four months ago, Khan made a post on Instagram about the drama serial she was in with Adnan Malik.
In the tweet, Qamar said that Khan had tweeted a day after the Marvi Sirmed incident and that he respected Khan before she tweeted, but that he would never forget her “language and cheapness.”
Shanno (Khan) and Khalil (Malik) are cousins who fall in love. Their parents’ troubled past casts a long, dark shadow over their relationship that they can never get rid of. The drama looked at how the mistakes of an older generation can change the lives of their children and grandchildren for a long time.
