Actress Faryal Mehmood and singer Ahmed Jahanzaib recently made an appearance on a chat show ” Time Out With Ahsan”, hosted by actor Ahsan Khan. In the episode, both shared their respective experiences in the entertainment industry.
When Sonya Hussain was invited to the same show, “Time Out With Ahsan”, she refused to recognize Faryal Mehmood. On asking why she thinks Sonya did this, Faryal just said, “It’s okay, maybe she is professionally jealous, I like it.” Faryal Mehmood also revealed that Sonya Hussain has body shamed her when she was fat.
A little background…..
In 2015, Sonya and Faryal worked together in a drama Farwa Ki ABC, which was directed by Sohail Javed. Sonya played the character of Farwa in the show. Faryal, on the other hand, was new in the entertainment industry and had just started her acting career. She played a supporting role in it.
In a Facebook status made by Sonya Hussain, the actress made fun of Faryal’s new project. Joining in the mockery was Sohail Javed. In the comments exchanged between them, Sonya and Sohail not only made fun of Faryal’s upcoming drama but also body-shamed her.
In response, Faryal shared the screenshots of the comments made by the actor-director and made a Facebook status of her own where she called out Sohail Javed for allegedly wanting the attention of women half his age and attributing the failure of the drama Farwa Ki ABC to his failure as a director. She even called Sonya a “sad version of Micheal Jackson” because of her supposedly using make-up foundation a shade lighter than her skin tone. Also asked Sonya to “take a rickshaw exactly back where she came from.”
Sonya and Sohail did not respond to this post and all seemed forgotten. Then Sohail Javed announced his feature film Sorry and among the cast, Sonya Hussain was included as one of the main leads. However, Sonya ended up walking out of the movie and she was replaced by none other than Faryal Mehmood.

Co-stars not sharing a friendly equation is not unheard of in the industry, but making statements about each other and refused to recognize is not a very likeable attitude shown by these celebrities.
