Yasir Hussain’s criticism of QMobile appointing Esra Bilgiç as their brand ambassador has left the entertainment industry divided once again. While some actors have seconded Yasir’s opinion, others have said that it’s not a big deal and that international artists should be welcome in Pakistan.
While Minal Khan and Aiman Khan agreed with Yasir, Bilal Ashraf, Anoushey Ashraf and Agha Ali were of the opinion that there is no harm in foreign artists working in Pakistan.
“If Fawad and Mahira can work in India, I’m sure international artists can work here,” said Anoushey.
Agha said that actors like to be international and that we should work to welcoming them in our country. He said that we should respect them and work on building ties with other countries.
“Let outsiders feel welcomed here. And please stop making all of us actors [look] insecure,” commented Agha.
Bilal said that “art has no language or boundaries”.
He added, “Pakistan zinda dil logon ka mulk hai (Pakistan is a country of lively people).”
Aijaz Aslam said that “healthy competition is always good”.
Later, when the trolling got intense, Anoushey said that she will interview Yasir live to discuss both point of views.
Meanwhile, Iqra Aziz requested everyone to respect each other’s opinions and not point fingers at anyone.
