A month ago, Shahid suggested the drama industry open a “divorce office” to deal with all the characters that get divorced in dramas.

Taking a jibe at Hum TV, Shahid wrote: “It should now open a talaq ka daftar [divorce office] after such promotion.”

This is not the first time the actor has been critical of Pakistani dramas and films.

In May, Shahid made a sarcastic remark about Turkish epic Ertugrul Gazi being aired on PTV on Prime Minister Imran Khan’s request.

In a tweet, the actor shared a photograph of a protective face mask and said he bought a Rs160 mask for Rs2,500. “…after watching our Turkish Islamic history and learning all the good words and deeds this is what we actually practice,” said the actor.
