In a recent interview with filmmaker Rafay Rashdi, Nauman Ijaz discussed the hurdles faced by actors and producers of the Pakistani entertainment industry.
Responding on the issues of pending payments, Nauman said:
No actor or producer in the industry does not have pending payments.
Telling about his pending payments, he continued:
My [own] payments are also pending. One channel owes me almost five crores, while another owes me around two and a half crores. They all are big channels and they are not paying.
Moreover, Nauman spoke:
Artists these days, I apologise for my words, are all donkeys. We work like donkeys. If they are not going to get paid on time, then how will they deliver?
While talking about COVID-19 times, the actor stated:
During the COVID-19 pandemic, the broadcasters blackmailed the producers to provide content, so the producers went to artists and warned them that if they won’t work, they will be blacklisted.
