In a bombshell of revelation, veteran actress Salma Zafar has accused celebrity couple Javeria Saud and Saud Qasmi of defrauding her and many others who worked for their company JJS Production House. Alleging that Saud and Javeria have not paid her and the crew of the dramas Yeh Kesi Muhabbat and Yeh Zindagi, Salma recently broke the silence in a live session on Instagram.
“Na mere paas koi jhoot hai na koi siasat. Main Defence mai sirf issi wajah say bangla leke nahi beth rahi kiunke main compromise karti houn (Neither I have lies nor I am political. I don’t even have a bungalow in Defence for this very reason that I compromise),” said the actress.
“Mai sar jhuka ke nahi sar utha ke kaam karti houn. Aur aurat inn say sar utha ke baat karay aisa toh woh bardasht nahi kartay (I work with my head up high, and if a woman talks to them with self esteem they cannot bear it),” she added.
Salma emphasized that she spent five years working for Javeria and Saud and they have not paid her yet. She said she has remained patient and quiet for almost a decade but enough is enough now. Calling the couple out on not paying the poor labor class, the actress claimed that they have made a luxurious house and life for themselves by stealing the rightful money of others.
“Mere jaisay kayi logon ki badduan bhi tum logo ke saath hai jin ke 5000 rupay, 7000 rupay tankhwa thi aur jo bus mai sawaar hou ke becharay atay thay (a lot of people like me curse you. Those who had salaries of 5000 and 7000 and they used to commute in bus to reach work),” Salma said.
“Saud tum aurton ki kamai pay zinda rehne walay mard ho. Yaad hai na Umer Sharif ne tumhare galay say chain khenchi thi. Tumhari toh izzat hi nahi (Saud you are the kind of man who lives on women’s earnings. Do you remember how Umer Sharif took off a chain from you, you don’t have any respect,” the veteran actress lashed at the former film actor.
Salma claimed that because of the ill intentions of the couple, Geo TV stopped the two dramas from their production house and people were left without their hard-earned money. The couple has so far not commented on the serious allegations but it indeed came as a dent on their reputation in the industry.
