She further accused the makers of delaying the contract signing and that it is in her power to halt the release. “Technically, if I wanted, I could probably put a stay order on the release but I am lazy and frankly, don’t give a rat’s a*s anymore.” To the makers of the film, she said, “SHAME on you.”

Team ‘Yaara Vey’ Responds

On behalf of Beeline Productions in response to Marina’s claims, team Yaara Vey released an official statement.

The production house further said, “They will not stand idly by to misconduct and malpractices”. Acknowledging Marina Khan’s claims, they “deeply regret” the inconveniences caused to her.

Shocking…Is this how we respect veterans?

We constantly talk about the revival of the film industry in Pakistan. If this is the strategy to revival than it isn’t a wise one. Treating a veteran like Marina Khan whose body of work not just inspires aspiring actors in Pakistan but all over the world. Her work is shown as a benchmark in film schools in India. It is shocking to see an actress of such great repute voicing her claims on social media.  We hope that all her claims shall be settled by the producers soon.
