If there’s one controversy that refuses to die down, it’s Firdous Jamal’s comments regarding Mahira Khan and the furore that ensued. Just as we thought the storm had passed, producer Momina Duraid posted a long note on Instagram stating she was banning Firdous Jamal from all future projects undertaken by her company MD Productions.
Understandably, Momina’s decision hasn’t gone down well with members of her fraternity. In fact, superstar Humayun Saeed almost regrets tweeting against Firdous Jamal. “I had tweeted after I saw Firdous sahab sharing his opinion about Mahira Khan. I have no problem with him sharing his opinion but since his tone was a bit rude, I felt I needed to address it,” Humayun said in a chat with Something Haute.
And it is her dedication and passion towards her work that has led her to this position. She is a heroine and a star in every sense of these words. As far as age is concerned, an actor and their talent is not bound by it.

“Banning him from working is unfair. He has been a part of several serials produced by our company and is a fantastic actor with a huge body of work. Not like there will be any dearth of work for him if he is banned because he’s a big star but it’s just wrong to even set this precedent,” he added.
Firdous Jamal has delivered several iconic performances throughout his career
Humayun also said that his production company Six Sigma Plus will continue to work with Firdous Jamal. “This industry needs actors like him and will always do,” he said.
Earlier, Mahira Khan had also responded to Firdous’ comment in an exclusive interview with us saying what he said about her was his opinion and that he has a veteran actor and she will always respect her seniors. Here’s that video, do check it out:
