Veteran actress, playwright and Pakistan’s favourite comedian, Bushra Ansari is trending on Twitter for all the wrong reasons.

Ansari decided to leave a long, harsh comment on a review of her drama serial, Zebaish, by YouTube channel Amma TV Aur Mein. It is an online show by Momin Ali Munshi and his mother Lubna Faryad where dramas are reviewed through the lens of an ordinary mom (Amma) watching Pakistani television.

The reviews are supposed to be humorous, blunt and representative of what the common Pakistani woman thinks of the dramas she is watching.

But Ansari did not take lightly to the review of actors Zara Noor Abbas and Asma Abbas for their roles in Zebaish. Here’s what her now deleted comment was:


But Twitter isn’t having it. They want the actor to apologise. Soon after Ansari’s comment, #IStandWithAmma started trending to show support with Faryad.

    I think bushra ansari is right. No one have right to criticize in such a cheap way just to make fun. we have to understand there is a lot of hard work behind every scene we just can’t imagine.

    Bushra Ansari has worked very hard to earn a place in the show biz world. It is but natural to get provoked when someone criticizes your effort mercilessly and humors it away just for the heck of it. Amma Ji, if that is what the lady likes to be, addressed should have exercised caution in her choice of words. Her sarcastic tone and indulgence as if she is Queen Know All, most probably need fine-tuning. Critical appraisal is the feedback that helps in refining any art. Usually, strong reviews digested with a pinch of salt, and better still, a sweet silence make sense. In this case, Ms. Ansari got carried away, and her tweet, basically self-talk, and a first reaction were avoidable. For Amma Ji, it is a win-win situation. Ratings have rocketed. As for our artist friend, it happens. Always, it is not a sunny day. I would suggest that you tweet again and explain what you meant. Corona is a pandemic, and negativity is contagious. Those who spread this virus may heal. Amen.
