In a world full of hate, let's choose to love. Let's be tolerant of other people's opinions and let our struggle be against the mentality: that a successful woman is a scary thought. No, it is not. It is beautiful and empowering. Let's stop bothering each other so that this industry and our country thrive like no other. read somewhere that 'Stardom' in Latin means: thanks to fans when I was alone. Stardom is then! Thanks, X.

Veteran television actor #FirdousJamal criticizes the acting skills of # MahiraKhan and calls her exaggerated in a recent interview with #FaisalQureshi for his #SalamZindagi program. Everyone has the right to their opinion, but we believe that older people in the industry should support our talent instead of leaving it on national platforms. 🙏 Video by @aryzindagi
