Mehwish Hayat and Azfer Rahman recently starred together in online web series ‘Enaaya,’ about a college student who dreamed of making it big in the music industry – and while the show has gained momentum in ratings, it has divided viewers who are debating whether or not the abusive language used throughout was necessary.
Fahad Mustafa recently condemned Mehwish’s ‘Enaaya’ for selling “nudity, abusive language” and labeled it as “porn.”
The actor tweeted how “actors [were] selling themselves very cheapy” for a show that was “just talking about sex.” He said that talking about sex was not “freedom of speech” and that “web series” need to “be a little dignified or they should just call it porn.”
Nudity ,abusive language and just talking about sex is not content .lets not call it freedom of speech ! Actors selling themselves very cheaply its not cool at all .web series and short films needs to be a little dignified or they should just call it porn ..

Mehwish Hayat responded to Fahad’s tweet last night and said how it was “sad that some people are passing judgments on ‘Enaaya'” without having watched it all.
The star of ‘Enaaya’ defended the show and said it essayed a “realistic portrayal of today’s youth culture.” She went onto say how “there is so much more to the show than those two dialogues” which were of an abusive nature. She ended her response with “Thankyou, next” – (referencing Ariana Grande’s famous lyrics).
The show has certainly divided audiences, with many rebuking it for its abusive nature.
Others, however, supported the show and lauded it for depicting a certain reality that exists in our society.
A user suggested that a warning should be issued beforehand for viewers beforehand…
