Fahad Mustafa’s comment on web series triggers a virtual war among celebrities

Enaaya's lead actress Mehwish Hayat and director Wajahat Rauf respond to the comments.


It was a few days ago when Pakistani star Fahad Mustafa took to social media criticizing the content of web series. The actor used harsh words to put forward his point of view. And instantly people started talking about his comments.

Fahad Mustafa wrote, “Nudity, abusive language and just talking about sex is not content. let’s not call it freedom of speech! Actors selling themselves very cheaply it’s not cool at all. web series and short films need to be a little dignified or they should just call it porn ..”

Many took his message for hitting the recent Pakistani web series Enaaya and celebrities also started to respond to his comments. The main lead actress of Enaaya series Mehwish Hayat also responded on social media.

Mehwish Hayat in an Instagram post wrote, “It is really sad that some people are passing judgments on Enaaya without having watching the complete season. There is so much more to the show than those two dialogues which are not only a realistic portrayal of today’s youth culture but appropriate to the context of the scene. Let’s grow up and accept that a few words are not going to corrupt the nation! Thank you, next.”

Meanwhile, Fahad Mustafa once again took to social media rectifying his point that he did not talk about Enaaya series, his point was raised against the web series in general.

Addressing Wajahat Rauf, the director of the Enaaya series, Fahad Mustafa tried to clear the air.
He wrote: I love you @wajahatrauf and you know it … my tweet was about foreign content and not your people just trying to create an issue out of nothing … Best of luck for your upcoming film and whatever you do in future, my friend.

And Wajahat Rauf also responded to all this happening. By taking it to his social media he wrote, “I thought I’d clarify a point regarding my web series as sometimes silence is not golden. There are like four bad words in the entire season of 12 episodes. That too in a fight.”

Wajahat further added, “And for God’s sake, there are no sex scenes or even a single reference to it. Please feel free to voice your opinion after watching the entire season, not the other way around… but it’s a free world. The good thing is that the overall response has been great on both sides of the border and hence 90%positive reviews”.

And he concluded his post thanking Fahad Mustafa. He wrote, “And lastly, thank you, Fahad Mustafa, for putting out the fire before it spread with your gracious comment. Referring to your second tweet. You are a big star and an even bigger person.”
