Ali Abbas: We show romance on TV and our romance includes what actually, what do we show really? Just hand-holding? At most, we place our hands on someone’s shoulders. Trust me, doing that despite being actors, we feel very uncomfortable.

Laiba Khan: When the scene’s shoot ends, we laugh in discomfort like, what was that?

Ali Abbas: Furthering how actors feel relieved when even slightly intimate scenes are done filming. You don’t mind watching romance on Netflix. Your views make series like 365 Days trend but if actors here even hold hands, the backlash is instant and strong. My question to trolls is: Why do you watch TV? Why are you on Instagram in the first place? If it’s such an immoral platform, why don’t you delete your accounts? If a girl puts up a picture in shalwar kameez, her reach is small but if she shares a picture in sleeveless, she attracts a flood of likes, followed by the ‘moral police’ right below. Who told you that girl is wearing sleeveless? This means you were there to scrutinize her like an ‘ultrasound’ so you could comment below that this looks very wrong.

Laiba Khan: I feel that now we should learn if we feel uncomfortable or dislike something we should just don’t discuss that.

Here is the reaction emerged from the aforementioned discussion of celebrities:
