It all started after the popular actress Sonya Hussyn while making an appearance on Yasir Hussain’s The After Moon Show in 2018. During the rapid-fire segment of the show, Yasir asked Sonya that if she was Mahira Khan which film of hers she would have not done?
The host gave her three options: Verna, Raees, and Ho Mann Jahan.
Replying to the question the Saraab actress said that she wouldn’t have done Raees as she has no interest in playing a sidekick character to Shah Rukh Khan.
The comments recently came under the notice of the Oscar-winning director.
Sharmeen replying to Sonya’s comments left a message under a post of a digital media news publication.
“Don’t think you’ll ever be Mahira Khan so you won’t ever get to say no,” Sharmeen said.
“Don’t dis other women in the industry reflects poorly on you and your upbringing,” she further added.
