Chitral-based singer and songwriter, Irfan Ali Taj, recalled his unpleasant experience of meeting controversial actor Mohsin Abbas Haider in Islamabad, and stated on Facebook yesterday that the Main Shahrukh Khan Hoon actor “had the worst aura”.
A news outlet reported yesterday on Facebook that TV anchor Rabia Anum had walked out of Nida Yasir’s morning show, Good Morning Pakistan due to Mohsin Abbas Haider’s presence on it. The folk singer Irfan Ali Taj commented on it:
I met this guy [Mohsin Abbas Haider] in Islamabad. In a room full of celebrities, me and my friend, Ali, were in shorts and casual dress and this guy Mohsin shook hand with everyone but not me and Ali.
Irfan Ali Taj added that he and his friend felt disrespected but when someone played his music later on, the Sevak actor changed his attitude.
“He was embarrassed to know that we are not some random dudes in that room,” he remarked.
The singer concluded that it was already too late as Mohsin showed his real “character there and then, and had the worst aura, that speaks a lot”.
Mohsin Abbas Haider
Mohsin Abbas Haider was accused of domestic violence by his ex-wife, Fatima Sohail, in 2019. After the controversy, he was boycotted by certain influential personalities of the showbiz fraternity besides being kicked off the show Mazaaq Raat.
The actor continues to work in the showbiz industry but the allegations have tarnished his reputation.
TV anchor Rabia Anum recently walked out of Nida Yasir’s show because she did not want to share the same space as the alleged domestic abuser. Note that Nida Yasir is known for courting controversy on her show herself.
Mohsin Abbas Haider is a recipient of five Lux Style Awards. He is best known for his performances in the hit films Na Maloom Afraad, and Baaji, and will soon be seen in the upcoming web series Sevak: The Confessions.
