Shabbir Jan details Feud with Nida Yasir f


it was a deliberate ploy to boost television viewership.

Shabbir Jan revealed the truth behind his feud with Nida Yasir.

The veteran actor was a guest on the Nadir Ali Podcast and he was asked about his dispute with Nida Yasir.

In 2015, Shabbir Jan found himself in a controversy when he was pranked on Nida Yasir’s morning show Good Morning Pakistan.

He got offended and walked out of the show.

Speaking about what happened, Shabbir said:

“It was a stupid segment, you should know with whom you are talking and what exactly you are asking.”

The actor assertively stated that there has to be a limit to everything after being played for a fool on the show.

Shabbir said that it was a deliberate ploy to boost television viewership.

He acknowledged that talk show guests on morning shows are compensated for their appearances, but there must be a cap on what the hosts can reasonably expect the guests to do for ratings.

Shabbir Jan acknowledged that he often loses his temper quickly and that it was by his own initiative that he simply left the show.

The actor said that Nida and other members of the ARY administration paid him a visit afterwards and expressed regret for what had happened during the programme.

Regarding rumours that he was banned from the show, Shabbir dismissed them.

Later on in the podcast, when questioned why he no longer receives any awards, Shabbir Jan responded:

“Alhamdulillah, I got many PTV awards, but I don’t understand what I should do now to get an award, what [kind of] work are these people doing for which they are getting awards.

“I’m not fond of awards, our award is for the people. There comes a time you reach the point where awards don’t matter.”

Speaking on his career experiences with women, Shabbir Jan said that he is unwilling to share the screen with actresses.

The actor revealed that his work with an actress could have cost him a happy marriage.

Shabbir Jan was questioned by Nadir Ali on the “one actor” he would never work with again.

Initially hesitant to say, Shabbir eventually said he never wants to work with Sadia Imam.

The actor recalled a situation where he and Sadia Imam were both present for a shoot and it was suggested that Sadia hug him in front of his wife, which resulted in a quarrel.
