He said that: Masla yay hai tum good girl ho aur iss field may good girl nahi chalti (The problem is that you are a good girl and good girls don’t survive in this field).

Saba Bukhari continued:

He said that: Aisa kaisay ho sakta kisi nay tum par attempt na kia ho (How is this possible that no one ever made a move on you). He said that: Hum tumhay kaam q dain or paisay bhe dain jab k yaha larkian kam k liye sonay ko tayar hain (Why should we give you work and money when girls are ready to sleep for work).

All these lines, words from different men (person) (directors) broke me inside [and shattered] my dreams.

  • Showbiz hai hi shaitan ka garh (den). Yahan sirf “londay aur londian” hi chal saktay hain.

    Those who keep what’s between their thighs accessible to the influential and that which is between their teeth, locked, will go a looong way in this industry.

  • Yeh bachpan say iss say bhi buray kamoon mein hotee hain. Jab koyee director naa karaay tu mazloom ban jatee hain. Aur media ko galian aur #MeToo ; jab tak kaam chalta hay mazay say yeh sab gand kertee hain…
    Bhai tu itnee naik parveen bantee hay thujhay nahee pata media mein hota hee yeh kaam hay.
