Actor Zarnish Khan is no stranger to dubious internet fame — take the drama around her TV show Aitebaar and her comments about it, for one. She's back in the limelight for making a comment about a fellow star, Alizeh Shah.
Khan appeared on Wajahat Rauf's show Voice Over Man where she answered several rapid-fire questions. Her response to one of the questions stood out though.
Khan was asked if she's a better spiritual talker than Feroze Khan (she isn't), if she speaks English better than Aima Baig (she doesn't), whether she is a better debater than Imran Abbas (she could win against anyone but him) and if she is a better dancer than Faryal Mahmood (yes). Upon being asked who would win in a rudeness competition, Shah or her, she said, "I think whoever it is against, she will win".
Her comment — and the question itself — were rather pointed, given that Shah has been in the spotlight for her alleged rude behaviour in the past.
The 21-year-old actor was called out by actors Yasir Nawaz and Naveed Raza for her lack of respect for senior artists in the industry. "No matter how famous or talented you are, you should never overlook someone's seniority and respect. What's happening in your personal life should not be brought to the sets. It is a workplace," Raza had said on Time Out With Ahsan Khan.
Feroze Khan had jumped into the conversation and defended Shah. But it seems like the internet has some serious issues with Shah and everything she does. Netizens like to pick on her for what she wears, says or even the way she chooses to live. Previously, singer Momina Mustehsan also defended Shah when fans criticised her for her outfits.
Clips of her answering the question about Shah went viral online and have been met with silence from Shah, save for reposting a Mufti Menk tweet on her Insta story about not expecting people to understand you.
