Talking about some of her tweets and statements which were misinterpreted, Shah said that important issues were ignored and her words were misconstrued and turned into headlines.

The Balaa actor said: “I’m a human being and should be able to express [myself] without it turning into something malicious, which is completely out of context.”

Omar commended Shah on being gifted in the art of acting.

6 years of pent up frustration: In this episode of #sayitallwithiffatomar (@iffatomarofficial ) I have forsaken the dignity a “celebrity” must maintain and clarified/responded to each tweet/thought that has bothered the world so much. I’ve answered all the burning questions that have propelled hundreds of headlines. From your pizzas to your singers. I will speak on these no further. I have answered all “controversies” for the now and for the future (so refer back to it the next time you’re curious). Have at it. When you forget that there is a person within a personality, make their name into a verb and violate their being, you butcher a piece of their soul. You affect not just them, but their mothers and their loved ones who collectively feel their pain. You do that, for the sake of your hits & clicks and I have been your target for a very long time. What I want; what’s most important to me, is to create art. So for the countless hits, the spicy gossip, and the drawing room discussions my name has entertained you with off camera… you’re welcome. I have paid my dues, I’m bowing out of this circus. Now please, let me get back to work 🎭 – Ushna Shah (Second slider refers to an image & chant from William Goulding’s #lordoftheflies – a take on what becomes of society when reduced to its primitive state , and an exploration of mankind’s “beast” nature that is often revealed in a mob. I find it is as relevant today as it has ever been. #trollculture )
