In a recent and now deleted tweet, actor Shaan Shahid had pointed out how much PTV charged for airing a show that was already available on Netflix.
He wrote, "PTV charged 7 billion a year to show us a product that's already available on Netflix."
He received flak from several users as many explained how the channel aired a dubbed version of the serial in Urdu for the majority to understand, whereas Netflix streamed the Turkish serial with English subtitles.
Others pointed out how Netflix was not affordable for everyone but PTV was available on everyone's television.
Following this, a user also told Shaan to learn about his religion through the serial instead of criticising it. To this Shaan responded, "Main apna deen dramoon or filmon sai nahee sekhtaa. (I don't need films or serials to learn about my religion)"
"Alhamdulillah, mujhay mairee Amma jan nai sikhaya hai. (Thank God, my mother has taught me that). Or waisay bhi yeh bhai, ye Turkish actor, paisay lai ker wuzu ker rahaain hain. (Not to mention, this Turkish actor is charging money for performing wudhu on television.)"

To this another user trolled him saying, "Tou ap kya duain lay k Films banaty ho (So do you take prayers in return for making films?) Aj tk ap nay hamain kya sekhaya, manji vich daang pherda, yahe dekha Hai hum nay ap logo ke kaam men bachpan se."

To tackle this Shaan said, "Lagta hai bachpan khatum nahee huwa, (It seems your childhood hasn't ended yet)."
