Veteran Lollywood actor Shaan Shahid and media personality Mustafa Chaudhary were recently spotted trolling the streaming giant Hum TV via their twitter handles and for all the right reasons. With their latest tweets, the two celebrities have hinted criticism towards the broadcaster, meant for encouraging divorce culture through their qualitative drama serials.
The legendary 90’s actor Shaan Shahid attains highly admired status in Pakistani dramas and filming industry. Other than chartbuster acting career, the Waar actor is also acclaimed for being a social activist as his twitter profile downpours with thoughts and concerns over every ongoing showbiz or media related subject.
Likewise, Shaan Shahid has sketched out twisted opinion about Hum TV’s screenplays that has once again brought him into the spotlight.
Mustafa Chaudhary’s tweets
In recent times, the Kashmiri-Pakistani actor Mustafa Chaudhry made a malicious comment about the eminent digital web Hum TV, sarcastically censuring the platform over promoting Divorce culture through their content. Mustafa in a tweet stated, “Oh Allah, please protect the households of all the ladies and girls, who are about to witness divorces in Hum TV’s dramas.”
Majority of the twitterites matched up with Mustafa’s opinion; however there were some cheeky followers, who pointed out the actor’s hypocrisy for not mentioning ARY digital, as he himself is part of the platform. But, overall Pakistanis agreed with a fragment that divorce and split-ups are being inspired by the directors and content creators.
Shaan Shahid replies
Mustafa’s tweet was meant for comical purpose. Nevertheless, what attracted the public’s eye was the reply of the iconic Pakistani star Shaan Shahid, as he jumped on the bandwagon to mock the platform. Shaan responded to Mustafa, approving his remark over the promotion of divorces through Hum TV’s spectacles. The Khuda Kay Liye actor commented, “Hahaha well said, after this much promotion, they should initiate divorce business too.”
There was a time when Pakistani dramas were considered intensively prestigious and worth watching all over the globe. Talking precisely about Hum TV, the platform has created some classical masterpieces in previous times like Yaqeen Ka Safar, Alif Allah aur Insaan, Humsafar, Zindagi Gulzaar Hai, Diyaar-e-dil and Shehr-e-zaat etc. which received massive accolades owing to their unique timelines and qualitative scripts. However, the current directors and writers have been more focused on ratings and rankings, rather than the actual script and morals. Be it Hum TV or any other streamer, Pakistani serials are currently revolving around the trending love triangles or family disputes, when they should be working on promoting real life issues and old times history. Hence, the type of content that’s being depicted validates the downfall destined for Pakistani dramas industry in near future.
