A few days ago, Sadaf Kanwal came under fire for her problematic stance on feminism and ‘our culture.’ Later, in another television appearance, her husband Shahroz Sabzwari said that ‘besharmi’ is the first motive of feminism.
It seems that the Nand actor has established his own definitions of ‘feminism’ and ‘liberals’, but hasn’t been able to educate himself properly.
The controversial couple is back in the news as netizens watched the interview again and found some more hypocritical comments.
Sadaf and Shahroz were invited to Hamary Mehman with Fizza Shoaib. When the conversation drifted towards item numbers in movies, specifically, Sadaf Kanwal’s Kaif o Suroor in Na Maloom Afraad 2, the host asked Shahroz how did he feel about it. To this, the actor said he liked it a lot.
Shahroz Sabzwari is the epitome of misogyny
The host then asked him whether he went to the rehearsals to support her,
“I didn’t know her at that time, I just watched her perform as Sadaf Kanwal and I really liked her performance.”
Shahroz Sabzwari believes that ‘everybody’ loved Sadaf Kanwal’s item song. When the host asked if he raised an issue about it, Shahroz said that he ‘didn’t have any right on Sadaf at that time’. She just did her ‘work’ and nobody should judge someone because of their work.
“But she is your wife now, you have a right on her. If she is offered an item number, would you let her do it?,” Fizza Shoaib asked.
“It’s her decision,” Shahroz replied.
This interview came on Eid and the irony is that Shahroz Sabzwari had the audacity to speak on feminism after he said that he likes ‘item numbers’. The same man who does not have any issue with women or his wife being sexualized on TV or in cinema believes that feminists are the ones spreading ‘obscenity’ in the society and is grateful that he is not a ‘liberal’.
The Dil Ruba actor is not ignorant, but is rather a hypocrite and a misogynyst.
Does Sadaf Kanwal regret doing item numbers?
In an interview with The Independent Urdu last year, Sadaf Kanwal announced that she will no longer perform item numbers in films and she maintained her stance this time as well. Clarifying her point, she said,
“When you’re younger, there are a lot of things that you don’t understand. This is something Rabia Butt has said in an interview as well.”
“You end up wearing those clothes and doing that work, and when you begin to understand, the time has changed. I don’t think I’ll wear those clothes or do that kind of work again,” Sadaf concluded.
