Actor Nauman Ijaz is being called out for making actress Ayesha Omar uncomfortable on his show. Nauman questioned Ayesha if she does ‘controversial stuff’ intentionally to stay in the headlines.
The Bulbulay star, Ayesha Omar was recently a part of Parizaad actor Nauman Ejaz’s show, ‘G Sarkar.’ The host of the show questioned her about multiple things one of which was the ‘MeToo’ movement. Ijaz questioned her if she does controversial things intentionally. ‘Kabhi apki bold shoot ajati hain, much ap statements aisi deti hain,’ he added.
According to the host, Omar shouldn’t have opened up about things that happened in the past just to stay ‘relevant.’ He indirectly told the actress that she shouldn’t have opened up about harassment. ‘You should not forget that the society you are living in would make your survival difficult after it,’ he added.
Ayesha Omar could be seen visibly uncomfortable. She replied to the host that she speak up just because others were doing it. ”I did not do it because I wanted appreciation from the public. I wanted self-satisfaction,’ she said.
‘I never to someone’s name or put someone in the mud through it,’ she added further. According to Ijaz, Omar should’ve let it slide since she stayed quiet for so many years already.
‘There are a lot of women who don’t have the courage to speak but open up when they see someone else talk about their experience,’ she answered. ‘Sometimes you don’t need people to praise you. You just want to be that source of courage for someone,’ she concluded.
