More often than not, Yasir Hussain makes headlines for his rather problematic statements. A recent altercation has once again landed the Jhooti star in hot waters after he made some insensitive remarks towards fellow actor Nausheen Shah, talking about how she came to his wedding uninvited.
Appearing on a celebrity talk show, Yasir was asked whether there were any guests who crashed his wedding festivities back in 2019. Laughing on the matter, the actor quipped, "Our wedding card was on social media, so technically, everyone had it." When host Vasay Chaudhry further pressed him for a name, Yasir shared, "One of the famous personalities that attended the event 'forcefully' was Nausheen Shah."
Things took a turn for the worse when Vasay laughed at Yasir's response and added how Nausheen must have attended the event to see how weddings are celebrated since she herself isn't hitched yet.
Nausheen responded to the Lahore Se Aagay star's statements while talking to Galaxy Lollywood. She shared, "Would anyone go to someone’s house uninvited? I wouldn’t go to anyone’s house if I wasn’t invited, let alone someone’s wedding,” adding, "A fool is known by his speech and a wise man by his silence. Yasir called me himself and invited me. I feel so sorry for Yasir because certainly, he has serious memory issues. I also feel really sorry for Iqra. She is taking one for the team."
Soon after, all hell broke loose and Yasir lashed out at Nausheen's response. Taking to his Instagram account, he shared how he can easily upload screenshots of the conversations between him and Nausheen where she was begging him to send the location for the wedding venue. "If I am wrong for speaking the truth, then people who are asking such questions are also wrong, people who are watching the channel are also wrong, those who sensationalise the statements and present it to the audience are also wrong and even the people who are laughing over such matters are wrong. The whole system is flawed. I can't be the only one to be blamed for it," he retorted.
Yasir continued, "Stop this truth or dare or rapid-fire for ratings." He then went on to call out the viewers of the show for wanting to watch something as controversial as Koffee with Karan but not having the stomach to digest it. "It's a request to the audience, that if you want to see a copy of Koffee With Karan, then have the heart to listen to the answers as well," he said. "Do not get personal with the celebrity and call them out over their this or that statement. Watch the show, enjoy it and then move on. Don't get mad over it," he concluded.
