Looks like the storm over Iman Aly’s head is not blowing over any time soon.
After model Mushk Kaleem lashed out at the model-actor for her “condescending statement about the current models of our industry,” designer Maheen Khan, whose outfits Kate Middleton donned on her trip to Pakistan, took to social media to applaud Kaleem for her stance.
“It is unfortunate that a senior in the fashion and film industry should degrade new entrants,” wrote Khan, adding that she has worked with these girls and found them to be very professional.
Iman in her interview had stated that the models currently working in the industry don’t have ‘adequate general knowledge’.
Similarly, Frieha Altaf also took to social media to criticise Iman for her comments on Mahira Khan and Fawad Khan and remarked that the model was resorting to “a cheap publicity stunt as she has a movie coming up.”
Iman, in the interview, had claimed that Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees had first been offered to her. She further said: “90% of the movies made in Pakistan today are still offered to me first. But I only take the scripts I fall in love with. If I don’t like the lines, it feels like work, like slavery.”
In another segment, Iman had remarked Humayun Saeed would be a “doodh dahi bechnay wala” (dairy product salesman) if he was not an actor. She also labelled Fawad Khan as a “failed standup comedian” and Mehwish Hayat a “cosmetologist’s assistant.” She also said that Mahira should have stayed a VJ.
