Yasir Hussain doesn't like being called out for being an ungracious host to Nausheen Shah

He claims she forcefully invited herself to his wedding but wants you to 'exercise restraint' when talking about it.
25 Feb, 2021

Attacking fellow celebrities and finding himself in the middle of a controversy isn't new for actor Yasir Hussain, who often voices what comes to his mind without filtering much out.

This time he has landed himself in hot water over remarks he made about fellow actor Nausheen Shah, who Hussain claims showed up to his wedding without an invite. On the television show Ghabrana Mana Hai, he opened up about what happened.

"I had decided to only call people who are close to me, and who live in the city," he said, mentioning how the invite was on social media and thus, public knowledge.

He said despite only inviting 170 people, more than 200 guests showed up, including Shah, who came to the event "forcefully."

In response, host Vasay Chaudhry took this an opportunity to demean Shah, passing a crude, uncalled for comment on her marital status. "Actually, she herself isn't married so she must have wanted to see what weddings are like," he smirked. Marriage is not the ultimate goal in every woman's life. If the host put in as much energy as he into passing derogatory comments about single women on his own show, his content would probably be much better.

When asked if any other industry peers attended the wedding with "forced invites", the Lahore Se Aagay actor reiterated that she was the only one, cracking up and saying “Buhat hansi arahi hai (I can't stop laughing).”

If this wasn't enough, he then went on to say that he found it amusing how Shah got the most pictures taken at the event. "Even more than us."

Probably realising how crude the conversation sounded, Hussain tried covering it up by saying he was a huge fan of Shah's style — but it was already too late.

Shah, who was reached out to by Galaxy Lollywood after the incident, was obviously appalled at the conversation and horrified at the comments. She said there was no truth to Hussain's claims.

"Would anyone go to someone’s house uninvited? I wouldn’t go to anyone’s house if I wasn’t invited, let alone someone’s wedding,” she said.

“A fool is known by his speech and a wise man by his silence. Yasir called me himself and invited me. I feel so sorry for Yasir because certainly has serious memory issues. I also feel really sorry for Iqra. She is taking one for the team,” she snapped back.

Responding to the criticism, Hussain took to social media to make matters worse and attacked both the public and Shah.

"If I am in the wrong for speaking the truth, then the host asking me questions is also wrong, the television channels airing it are also wrong, and the bloggers who spice up the news and spread it to the public are also wrong, including every person watching and abusing me — the entire system is wrong, its not just me," he posted. His justifications fell flat though because he is the one who made the comments, not the host (he can be held responsible for the terrible things he said), the channel or the public.

He then went on to claim that he had proof to show that Shah was "desperate for an invite" and ended up annoying everyone at the event.

"And where my senior actor Nausheen Shah is concerned, whatever I said was 100% true — that some people showed up forcefully. If someone who said she would silently ignore the situation is now passing comments, then I will gladly show the messages and voice notes, after which I got annoyed and finally sent her the location for the wedding.

"She annoyed everyone when she showed up, and she's annoying everyone now too," he added, calling her "desperate" for wanting to be at his wedding.

Hussain also told Shah to stop using Iqra's name for views. "She felt as sorry for you, as you feel for her, when she first heard your voice notes," he claimed, calling Chaudhry's show a "copy" of Koffee with Karan and asking people to have the same restraint listening to answers given by local celebrities.

"Enjoy the show and move on — don't keep standing on my head," he told his audience.

For someone who ended up choosing to send someone an invitation to his wedding, for whatever reasons, Hussain sure proved himself to be an ungracious host, shaming someone who attended his big day. He wants us to move on from his comments and exercise "restraint" but doesn't want to be held accountable for saying something problematic.

When you're in the spotlight, your words matter, Yasir. People won't move on from the problematic things you say because they're problematic and they hope you learn from your mistakes. But how many mistakes does it take for you to learn to stop saying rude things about people?

Is he an actor?

Cheap actor

What a bunch of losers. The best part is they consider themselves as celebrities.

Feel sorry for his wife

Arrogance at its peak. Appalling!’
HonorBright Feb 25, 2021 06:57pm
TBH, I was quite comfortable while reading his ungracious comments about Miss Shah until i reached the final part of his mental dyspepsia in which he tried to patronize 'us' the audience. Whether we enjoy the copy of coffee shows or not you don't enjoy the impunity to say what you want but don't like comments upon it. When a conversation is in public domain, people will 'stand on your head' if disagreeing with u tantamount to that!

Pardon my ignorance but who are they?

Hahahaha na shakal na aqal ladies and gentlemen yasir Hussain for u.....

I do feel sorry for Miss Shah if it took her so long to see this mean side of this man. Yes, Yasir had every right not to extend an invitation to anyone he deemed undesirable, we are cool with that, it's a pity that Miss Shah was on such friendly terms with him so as to make her wish to attend his wedding. Wish you a happy married life Yasir and Iqra only don't think that world was created for your wedding photo sessions.

Wind it up people!

Who would insult guests at his/her wedding? This guy does. Probably he was bothered about the lunch/dinner cost he had to bear for Ms.Shah.

Frustrated....seeking unpopular attention...
Chrís Dăn Feb 25, 2021 10:01pm
Cheap talk by Yasir.
SEA Feb 25, 2021 10:02pm
The only worthwhile thing in his life was his marriage which introduced him to the world. Given that, he tries to bring in his marriage into everything.
Nakheel Feb 25, 2021 10:15pm
This Yasir character has a disgusting attitude. A flop actor. Hope his conduct takes toll on his so called career. That's the only way they learn.
Fahad Saleem Khan Feb 25, 2021 10:50pm
is he someone whose wedding is so important,
Ali Feb 25, 2021 10:59pm
This guy is really frustrated and sad from Inside, You can't be this bitter until and unless you have serious Complex Related issues. He sounds so insecure. He ain't even a celebrity, just a Bits & Pieces Artist who craves attention all the time. If you read him closely, it's him who is desperate.
Ali Feb 25, 2021 11:03pm
Really such an over weight, casual and uncivilized person is a 'Celebrity' Now? Our Entertainment industry hitting a new low like our Cricket. So dad that he is even part of this industry
Captain Feb 25, 2021 11:03pm
What is he and who’s he?
Nidz Feb 25, 2021 11:11pm
The only feather in his cap was his marriage to iqra... i hope he didnt marry her for fame bcz with this kind of attitude he is going to spoil her career as well ( rusting his own)

A real and successful actor needs to have a presentable disposition and honourable etiquette.
Imran Khan Feb 26, 2021 03:19am
I support yasir for his comments and Shah is the one who should be ashmed...

Practically an unknown entity
Osama Nisar Feb 26, 2021 08:18am
Well said Yasir
M. Saeed Feb 26, 2021 03:51pm
@Imran Khan so, you support lies?
Shahid Mahmood Feb 28, 2021 12:28am
This man is indecent, unkind, and misbehaving. And he can't even be called a provocative personality as he is rather unrespectful and crude. Miss Shah is better advised to avoid this man.
Shahid Mahmood Feb 28, 2021 12:36am
@Imran Khan, Either you are Yasir himself or Iqra hidden behind this name otherwise no sane person would endorse such indecency.
Mani Feb 28, 2021 12:55am
Why this guy gets any recognition is beyond my understanding. There’s barely any talent. On top of that he openly lies, exhibits jealousy and crass behaviour. Most importantly he gives entertainment professionals a bad name. Not good for Pak’s media industry.
