Mohsin Abbas Haider, the singer-turned-actor who was been in the news over charges of assault against his wife Fatima Sohail, has been reportedly sacked from his show. The host of Mazaaq Raat was booted out by his employer Dunya News, after his wife went public with the abuse she faced at his hands.
Mohsin actually got his start from Mazaaq Raat. WIth his stint at Dunya TV, he played a DJ who sang from time to time. He also invited artists from all over Pakistan such as Qaiser Piya, Akram Uddaas and more. He took over the show after the departure of actor Nauman Ijaz.
