His comments triggered vitriol online. Some said that Behroze Sabzwari excluded the women of his family while advising women. Netizens re-shared the video of his present daughter-in-law Sadaf Kanwal who performed in an item song in a Pakistani movie.
One girl shared the video of his son, running on Karachi’s sea view half-naked to burn calories during Ramadan. “Behroze Sabzwari and his family earn their living through all things ‘haram’ but bike pe jatay hoye bechare seedhay saday log aur khwateen are a threat to the holiness of their society. Not just hypocrites but a family of misogynist, classist scums,” wrote one social media user.
“They should think about this. [Their choice of clothing]. It is the responsibility of an actor to take control of their attire and make sure they aren’t dressed in something that doesn’t look pleasing.”
Sabzwari also pointed out that the clothes in style today are mostly adopted from other cultures. “Why don’t we wear our cultural attire like shalwar kameez and dupatta? Allah will grant you respect even in these clothes. You don’t get popular by copying clothes from foreign countries, you get disrespected in society,” added the Tanhaiyaan actor.
“Some women wear inappropriate clothes, very see-through and tight. I believe that is wrong. Our showbiz is also packed with highly educated and knowledgeable actors. They are quite aware of how men think, and so does everyone else here. [Referring to everyone on the podcast’s set] So, they should take care of what they are wearing,” concluded Behroze Sabzwari.
