Last month, Fahad Mustafa caused quite a ruckus on social media after he mocked the popular South Korean band, BTS, while promoting his latest Eid release, Quaid-e-Azam Zindabad. The actor irked many K-Pop fans while appearing in an interview with co-star Mahira Khan.
Now, in a recent appearance at Express Entertainment's Eid special, Stars Ki Kashish with Sheheryar Munawar, the Load Wedding star is setting the record straight with how he has now taken a liking to the award-winning band. Responding to a question, Mahira shared how Fahad called out BTS in a previous interview.
Taking a jibe at her co-star, the Verna star quipped, "[Fans] call me out when I call out their favourite band while on television." Responding to the same, Fahad laughed and added, "To be fair, I didn't even say anything." Munawar interjected at this point, "What's this story?" Fahad folded his hands and asserted, "Nothing, don't get into this, please."
At this point, Mahira chimed in and added, "But they are damn good. Fahad and I listened to BTS [after the outrage] and they are damn good. Even Korean dramas are great!"
Previously, Fahad had shared that he had actually never heard the sensational South Korean boy band’s music. In fact, he exclaimed a firm “no, hell no” when asked about it. Calling it his choice, the Jeeto Pakistan host shared that he doesn’t even know his daughter’s favourite song by the band.
"I used to call them Behind The Scenes band and she responded with 'no papa!’ It's...I don't know Bangtan So to something, I don't know. She speaks Korean, she doesn't speak Sindhi, what is wrong with these people?” lamented the actor, emphasising how he’d rather want her speaking her mother tongue.
Mahira, as clueless as Fahad about the Korean entertainment industry, added that it is indeed a "big thing" amongst teenagers. “Especially K dramas, although I haven’t seen any of them.”
