Senior journalist and director Abu Aleeha has recently voiced his concern about the industry choosing nepotism over real talent, directly making a jab at actors Haroon Kadwani and Azaan Sami Khan.
The Javed Iqbal director took to Twitter to say that the amount of hardwork TV channel Geo was doing to promote actor Abdullah Kadwani’s son Haroon Kadwani and singer Adnan Sami Khan’s son Azaan Sami Khan, should actually have been done on NAPA’s talented acting students to provide them with the platform they deserve! He also urged audiences to stop praising every other mediocre teaser in comments.
