Non-actors better producers because they ask just to be famous: Seemi
Many television actors work 12-15 hours each day to keep the daily soaps running and are currently worried about their financial status. Many are finding it difficult to stay on in an expensive city like Karachi with rents, food, EMI and other expenses.
Veteran actress Seemi Raheel made a valid point regarding how money is now second to two moments of fame for inexperienced young actors, making it easier for producers to ignore the real talented artists.
She further adds, “Sad don’t pay actors just hire semi-pretty boys and girls and promote them like hell.”
