Mahira Khan has mental health problem and Anwar Maqsood is drunk in this part of life. Both these shameless characters are cursed by public. Books can be written on Mahira Khan’s character, she also flatters Indian actors for money. And Anwar Maqsood is a cursed character full of prejudice

During An Evening With Mahira Khan, host Anwar Maqsood and Mahira spoke about women fighting, yelling, and “giving each other poison”.

“Two women, Maryam Nawaz, and Marriyum Aurangzeb,” Maqsood started as the audience burst into laughter and cheers. He went on to say, “I am not allowed to talk about politics. The situation is such. It’s going to get better very soon,” he said. “Poisoning etc. happens in real life not just in dramas. Both are actors, not character actors,” he added.

The clip went viral with some people commenting that the playwright’s sense of humor has become outdated.
