— Ushna Shah (@ushnashah) January 1, 2022 The actor, who is not one to shy away from stating her opinions on social media, recently called out people who are of the opinion that acting as a profession is below them or believe that actors promote “vulgarity”, asserting that they should not follow drama serials or the associated actors’ social media accounts

Channelling the rage, the 31-year-old actor tweeted, “Every Pakistani with morals and ethics who finds acting and actors inferior, who thinks we spread ‘fahashi’ (vulgarity) should promptly get rid of their TV (or any channel that shows content that isn’t preaching Islam) and get off social media immediately!” Ushna is all set to feature in the upcoming Pak-Turk joint drama series on Salahuddin Ayubi

The show will be focusing on the life of the great Muslim leader - better known in the West as Saladin

In addition to Ushna, Adnan Jilani, Farhan Agha, and Ayesha Omar, were also chosen in the first round of auditions that were held in Lahore and Karachi

Over 6,000 professional and budding actors had applied for the tryouts, but only 62 were short-listed for the Islamic warrior series, to be screened in Pakistan and Turkey simultaneously
