Osman Khalid Butt who started his career from theatre and vlogging is now one of the biggest names of Pakistani showbiz industry. From various successful dramas to many films, Osman Khalid Butt has a lot to offer. His European looks, sharp wit and electric dancing skills make him different from the sets of his peers. However, what actually makes Osman Khalid Butt ahead of everyone else is his stance on misogyny and regression. Although, he also has to face criticism for his radical views, Osman Khalid Butt has never ceased to speak up his mind. He has used social media to express his thoughts and views.

Firdous Jamal and Mahira Khan Fiasco did not sit well with many actors including Osman Khalid Butt

When senior actor Firdous Jamal passed comments on Mahira Khan’s acting skills and age, it did not sit well with most of the members of the film and television fraternity in Pakistan. Osman Khalid Butt was also one of those who decided to speak against Firdous Jamal’s opinion and called it chauvinist and regressive. According to Osman Khalid Butt, it was important for the members of Pakistani showbiz industry to keep their chauvinism under check. He said that if his colleagues would not refrain from reinforcing regressive and sexist stereotypes, the public will not treat the industry in general and women in particular with respect.

The reaction against Momina Duraid banning Firdous Jamal from MD Productions

According to a recent statement by Momina Duraid of Hum Television, Firdous Jamal has been banned to work for MD Productions due to his regressive remarks against Mahira Khan. This did not sit well with most of the actors. Even the ones who were previously speaking in the favor of Mahira Khan spoke against this decision of Momina Duraid. Feroze Khan was the first actor who came out against this decision.

Osman Khalid Butt’s thoughts at ‘an ungodly hour’

Osman Khalid posted on Twitter at late night with the caption, ‘some thoughts at an ungodly hour.’ According to Osman Khalid Butt, the culture of pitting actors against each other should end. In every show, they ask for the opinion about colleagues just for gossips and TRP which the actors should refrain from doing.

According to Osman Khalid Butt, problematic behavior must always be called out but being on the extreme is not the right thing to do. Criticism should be constructive and worded carefully. He said that the people within the industry should support each other because only they know the madness and effort that goes into producing this work. Creativity should make people more sensitive but it has instead desensitized and hardened people. According to Osman Khalid Butt, by completely canceling out a person you do not give them the opportunity to reflect on their behaviors. He quoted a comic strip that said, ‘Freedom of expression does not shield you from criticism and consequences.’ Osman Khalid Butt also hinted at the criticism being made on this decision calling it a hit on the freedom of expression. He said that refusing to work with someone is not against the freedom of expression but shunning away a senior actor’s contributions to the industry is regrettable.
