Saheefa Jabbar Khattak has made a distinct name for herself in the short period of time she has been around in the entertainment industry. Her choice of unconventional projects onscreen and her unapologetically confident and outspoken offscreen persona surely make Saheefa stand out among her peers in an industry where often the bland and the vapid is the order of the day. The bubbly starlet brought all that positive energy to the set of The Munshi Show where she sat down to give an honest and candid interview.
It is no secret that Saheefa has always used her social media to express her opinions. She has never shied away from making her views known about issues or topics she feels strongly about. When the whole Khalil Ur Rahman Qamar controversy hit and some in the industry spoke against the writer’s crass comments he made on live television, Saheefa was among those few celebs who went public at that time with their disgust regarding the whole situation. In the interview, Saheefa once again underscored her views, even going one step ahead to make a bold declaration of not working with the writer, ever.
“I will never work with Khalil Ur Rahman Qamar. It has come to the point that I can’t even bring myself to address him with respectful terms like ‘unn’ and ‘ aap’.”
Saheefa further opined that she could not stand the way Khalil Ur Rahman Qamar abuses the platform that he has been given. She was referencing the episode involving Khalil Ur Rahman abusing a female co-panelist as well as the press-meet where he made some crass comments about Adnan Malik, without explicitly naming him.
“I say we should stop talking about him. Because he is beyond disgusting,” is what Saheefa said, summing up her comments.
Being a strong advocate for women’s rights and empowerment, it is no surprise that Saheefa has a stance on the highly discussed #MeToo controversy that shook the Pakistani entertainment industry i.e. that of Meesha Shafi and Ali Zafar. During the interview Saheefa was asked who is the bigger superstar in her opinion, Fawad Khan or Ali Zafar, Saheefa immediately replied that for her it’s Fawad Khan.
“For me, it’s Fawad Khan. I cannot even take the other person’s name. I don’t like the guy and I don’t even want to talk about him.“
There was also an interesting reaction from the starlet when she was questioned about how she would react if she was stuck in a lift with Ali Zafar and Khalil Ur Rahman Qamar. To find out how Saheefa replied, and a whole lot more, watch the full episode of The Munshi Show which is out now on Galaxy Lollywood’s YouTube channel.
