Actor Aagha Ali and his wife Hina Altaf are facing criticism after making some insensitive comments on a live morning TV show.
Talking to the TV host, Nida Yasir, the newlywed couple were talking about their married life when Hina said that right before their marriage Aagha showed her a picture on his phone and said, “If you ever get this fat…”
Aagha then quickly said, “Before our marriage, I only asked for one promise. I said that I don’t want anything else except this one promise,” he said before turning to Hina, asking her to share the ‘promise’. “Please don’t get fat,” said Hina, as Agha and Nida laughed along.
The couple has set social media ablaze with their comments, with many expressing their disgust over body shaming. Viewers have criticized the couple for promoting ‘body-shaming’ and joking about it. Some also called them out for showcasing ‘conditional’ love and slamming Aagha for putting such pressure on his wife.
Others have also noted that Nida Yasir’s show frequently has such awkward moments where celebrities come and say things which are completely uncalled for, and do not get called out by the host, but encouraged further.
