Asim Azhar responded to an online publication for calling Iqra Aziz a “ghareebon ki Ariana Grande” and called it out for its belittling and demeaning comments.
Asim Azhar has chivalrously rushed to the defense of Iqra Aziz after an online publication labeled her a ‘ghareebon ki Ariana Grande.”
Iqra’s hairstyle for the Lux Style Awards was heavily inspired by not just Ariana Grande’s signature hairstyle, but also Deepika Padukone’s Cannes look.
However, calling the actress a ‘ghareebon ki Ariana Grande” is both poor in taste and impudent.
Asim commented under the post and castigated the Instagram account of 461 k followers for “degrading our stars.”
“It’s okay if you don’t like someone or their work. It’s okay to have opinions. But one thing I don’t get, when will we stop degrading OUR people? OUR stars? Things like these will never stop us from degrading our own self. Hum khud hi apnay aap ko itna neecha dikhate hain. ‘Ghareebo ki yay, Ghareebo ka wo’?! Firstly, is it that bad to be poor? Matlab gaali hai koi? Dusri baat, apnay logo ko hi itna neecha dikhana hai aur phir kehtay hain aagay kyun nahi bhartay hum. You don’t have to like someone forcefully but comparing & degrading your own artists like this is self destructing. I always try to keep my opinions & thoughts to myself but I’ve been seeing this ridiculous trend a lot now. I hope we change.”
