Mahira Khan and Fahad Mustafa have begun promotions for his or her new film Quaid-e-Azam Zindabad. One in all these promotions was with musician and filmmaker Mooroo on his podcast — that served as a testomony that Khan won’t ever cease being her personal assured and unapologetic self.
Through the podcast, Khan and Mustafa addressed a number of points actors face within the movie business and Mahira responded superbly when the host spoke about ageism. Her first transfer was to make it identified that ageism takes completely different shapes in relation to women and men — for girls there’s a shelf life and sheer gender discrimination. She defined that folks nonetheless need to watch older actors play foremost roles in movies. However for that, there have to be discussions. She added with pleasure, “I talk about the fact that I am divorced and I have a 12-year-old going onto 13.”
Khan is not any stranger to sexist ageism. Actor Firdous Jamal as soon as unbelievably mentioned she wasn’t “heroine stuff” because of her age. That yr, Khan starred within the movie Famous person. She has since filmed two extra films and hit drama, Hum Kahan Kay Sachey Thay.
Within the interview, Khan additionally spoke about being a mom and mentioned having a toddler made her take the position of Khirad in Humsafar — proudly owning her motherhood and displaying the way it goes hand in hand together with her work regardless of being instructed she ought to give attention to her youngster solely.
Later within the podcast, when requested about Khalilur Rehman Qamar, she revealed that he beloved her work and needed to proceed working together with her till she took a stance to help a fellow lady. Sure, we’re speaking concerning the Khalil and Marvi debacle. “I lost a lot of work but it doesn’t matter — I took a stance,” Khan mentioned proudly.
We love that Khan is aware of and publicly acknowledges that there is no such thing as a “shelf life” for an actor and that feminine artists needs to be outlined by their craft, not the wrinkles on their faces. The truth that she nonetheless must be having this dialog in 2022 is really horrifying.
Time and time once more, the movie business has seen a number of famend names take jabs at Mahira Khan and every time we now have seen her brush apart unwarranted hate in the direction of her with respect, love and beauty, making followers fall in love together with her yet again.
