'When we imagine a heroine, we see a teenage girl dancing and singing,' says Firdous Jamal
Actor Firdous Jamal is re-visiting his controversial Mahira Khan statement.
The actor, who earlier criticized Mahira's roles, saying that she should switch from working as a heroine to more elderly characters, does not regret his statement.
Speaking in a recent interview, when the host asked Firdous of his revised thoughts on Mahira, the 67-year-old revealed:
"What thoughts? I didn't say anything wrong, I said that she should do character roles, she should do characterization. When we imagine a heroine, we see a teenage girl dancing and singing, who is vivacious, looks youthful and innocent. All I said was that she doesn’t fit that criterion anymore," said Firdous Jamal.
The actor continued, "And by characterization, I do not mean that she should play elderly roles like of a mother, she could also play a wife, sister. There are countless characters available, she can even be a social worker."
