Video Of Pakistani Actor Javed Sheikh Trying To Kiss Mahira Khan Forcibly Goes Viral; Actress And Veteran Star React To Reports And Trolls
Yesterday morning, a lot of people on Pakistan woke up to news that Mahira Khan faced harassment at the LUX Style Awards 2018 when Javed Sheikh tried to forcibly kiss the actress. A video showing the Verna actress and the veteran actor on the stage as the former received an award started going viral with fans and media dubbing it a ‘cringe-worthy’ moment. While many came in support of the actress, asking her to take a stand and publicly call Javed out for his indecent act, social media was filled with negative comments for the veteran actor. He was trolled and how.
As suggested by fans, Mahira did take to her social media page to talk about the incident and said, “I have just woken up to such silly stuff floating around. It’s good to be aware and have an opinion but for Gods sake don’t use anything and everything to make news. Javed Sheikh of all people! He is a legend and a mentor to all of us in this industry. Would vouch for him always.” Read her tweet and watch the video below:

Javed Sheikh, who is a face to reckon with in India as well, with films like Jaan-E-Mann (2006), Apne (2007), Namastey London (2007), Om Shanti Om (2007), Yuvvraaj (2008) and more recently Tamasha (2015) and Happy Bhag Jayegi (206), also reacted to the trolls, hating him for the kiss controversy. He was on his way to Dubai with
Jerjees Seja (CEO of Pakistan’s largest TV network, ARY Digital Network) and Faysal Qureshi (noted Pakistani actor and TV host), when Sheikh posed for a picture where all the three were seen pouting.
Seja posted the picture on his instagram account with a caption that hinted that this was Sheikh’s reaction to the trollers, “Sheikh saab u are a true legend of Pakistani film industry and always a great sport. Social media can create anything out of nothing but there are very few ppl who can laugh at it like you do #legend #friends #fun @faysalquraishi @mahirahkhan (sic).” Now, with Mahira’s clarification and with Javed’s hilarious reaction, we hope media and fans take a chill pill and focus on more important things.
