And of course Ashraf decided to respond to Jamal's statements in the nicest way possible.

Looks like Firdous Jamal doesn't just think of Mahira Khan as 'model stuff'. He thinks that of everyone in the current entertainment industry.

In an episode of ARY's Hamare Mehman, the actor gave his opinion on Pakistani actors these days and it was not pretty.

When asked about his thoughts on the best stars, he said, "There is no best performer [in Pakistan]. They are all models, showpieces. They don't know that acting is something else. It's like a dummy at a store which people dress up for display."

When countered with examples of celebrities actually giving a decent performance, with the prime example of Imran Ashraf's performance as Bhola in Ranjha Ranjha Kardi, the veteran went on to say, "That role was all pretension, not spontaneous at all... he acted, he didn't behave."

While we're confused why an actor acting is bad, Imran Ashraf himself decided to respond to Jamal's statements in the nicest way possible.

"Firdous Sahib is a very respectable and brilliant actor. If he did the role of Bhola, he would've done it a thousand times better than me. I respect him and his opinion. My humble request to every one, my friends my viewers, I didn't mind his comments at all and I will try to learn more. Please no harsh comments for him. When our elders say something to us at home it's not necessary to take it badly."

While we commend Imran Ashraf for taking the high road and being ever so humble, we do wish that instead of just commenting negatively on the new generation of actors, Firdous Jamal would support them and help them get better with constructive feedback.
