Pakistani actress, TV host and model Sonya Hussyn Bukharee is exceedingly unsettled and has revealed her reservations about common showbiz rituals over the Eid segment of ‘Time Out With Ahsan Khan’.

We should mention here that Sonya is not an ordinary actress

She has portrayed brilliant acting skills in many Pakistani projects and if someone has to know about what goes on in the showbiz industry, it has to be Sonya.

On the set of an Eid segment, Sonya revealed that she has yet not received her payment for the movie ‘Tich Button’ and it has been two long years. The movie was produced by another Pakistani actress Urwa Hocane.

Wow Sonya. Your patience should be applauded.

She revealed, “It has been two years, I have done all the work for the movie but still haven’t received my payment cheque for Tich Button”.

If we should say so, this isn’t unusual in the showbiz industry worldwide.

For instance, let’s talk about Jennifer Lawrence who played the lead role of Katniss Everdeen in ‘The Hunger Games’.

We have all seen Hunger Games and surely everyone is a die-hard fan.

Jennifer even got nominated for her lead role in the Oscars.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actress was paid only $500,000 for her spectacular role.

But after the movie hit a major milestone she received further bonuses summing up to more than a million.

Let’s explore a few more examples so you get a gist of exactly what we are implying here.

We all know who Harry Potter is right? Well we are Daniel Radcliff’s biggest fans. The actor is truly blessed with an impactful talent.

Actor Daniel was also paid a very meagre amount for his role for his first instalment.

Lastly, actress Kristen Stewart who played a lead role in the movie Twilight also received an amount for her first instalment which was much less than what the actress deserved.

So this is a common ritual which is observed worldwide.

Though it is common, it is certainly unfair. 

Movie Tich Button is directed by Qasim Ali Mureed and produced by Urwa Hocane

Tich Button is Pakistani actress Urwa Hocane’s debut project as a producer.

The movie stars Sonya Hussyn, Feroze Khan, Iman Ali and Farhan Saeed. 

Tich Button has not been released yet due to Covid-19 restrictions.

Sonya Hussyn’s complaint during the Eid show certainly implies that renowned Pakistani star Urwa Hocane has not paid Sonya Hussyn for her hard work yet.
