Bushra Ansari apologises to drama critics, says she overreacted


Actor Bushra Ansari has apologised to drama critics and fans for her outburst last month. The actor was trending on Twitter for all the wrong reasons.

Here’s what happened: Ansari left a harsh comment on a review of her drama serial, Zebaish, by YouTube channel Amma TV Aur Mein by Momin Ali Munshi and his mother Lubna Faryad. The idea behind the show is to review Pakistani dramas through the lens of an ordinary mom watching television.

The reviews are supposed to be humorous, blunt and representative of what the common Pakistani woman thinks of the dramas she is watching.

Since then the comment has been deleted. Last week, Faryad also posted a response to Ansari. She said that she was overwhelmed by the love and support of her fans.

Taking to Instagram to explain herself, Bushra said that when an artist, writer, director or producer work on a project, it becomes a part of them. She said it was “like a child for them that they create with love for their audience.” Keeping this in mind, the actor said that it hurts when someone ridicules your hard work. “I believe that everyone has a right to like or dislike our work but language is important,” she added.
