Irresponsible statements can leave us at a mercy of internet trolls: Urwa on Aijaz’s statement


Aijaz Aslam’s controversial comments regarding Urwa Hocane are being viral on social media. He recently appeared in a talk show where he made a baseless statement that one actor who needed to learn manners was Urwa Hocane.

Urwa Hocane came forward to respond to Aijaz Aslam’s baseless allegation.

She said:

This is my response to the baseless allegations circulating about me all over social media. I respect all my seniors in the fraternity including their opinions and advice but they too have a responsibility towards their younger counterparts and the effect their words can have on someone’s image, mind and even work.

Adding on more, she wrote:

In all honesty, I am a creatively charged person which I proudly accept. And yes, I always indulge in healthy discussions with my directors or producers.

Talking about Aijaz Aslam’s remarks, Urwa said:

I am sure he didn’t intend to harm me and didn’t realise how much it could blow out of proportion as I don’t know him in a personal capacity or have not even been a co-star with him in a single production.

She went on highlighting a major point:

Irresponsible statements can often leave us at a mercy of internet trolls, therefore everyone must watch what they say in public about someone else especially when it’s mere hearsay.

Meanwhile, Aijaz Aslam took on his Instagram to clarify his comment.

He said:

I have been noticing the news doing the rounds on my clip about Urwa Hocane.

Moreover, he added:

I want to clarify that I have never worked with her or been ill-treated by her. It was a multiple-choice question asked of me during a show and even in my answer, I said this is what people say but it might be wrong.

He ended the statement by saying:

Kindly don’t malign people on my behalf. Nothing but respect for all my industry colleagues here.
