The actor and tv host shared a video on his Instagram account. In the video, he appeals to the government to help Pakistani artists and the showbiz industry.
According to reports, the actor said that we have not accepted our entertainment industry till date. Where this industry has made so many big names, Madam Noor Jahan, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Mehdi Hassan are at the top of the list but to date no government has helped them in their time of need.
The actor said the reason for this is that this industry has not been recognized by any government.
Talking about the problems of the artists, the actor said, they are criticized every time for how they dress, what they are doing, what is happening in their personal lives, to the extent that an artist has to claim her rights in a hospital bed.
Ahmed Ali Butt added that if you ever think that these are the artists who share your happiness, sell products for you and raise funds for you, then I think now is the time for the entertainment industry and its artists to be honored. Give them their rights.
Actor Ahmed Ali Butt further said that we are not begging you, God willing, we can take care of ourselves. We are just asking for our right and our identity. Sharing the video, he wrote, “It’s time! We as a community of artists, singers, actors, writers, producers, directors, composer, editors and so on, need to be recognised by our government as an industry. Give the artists their dues”.
