You can’t stop anyone from shooting an item song– Sohai Ali Abro
According to local media reports, Sohai Ali Abro stated that if people did not like item songs, they were free not to watch them. She further said that no one could stop others from doing the songs.
In response to a question about Hamza Ali Abbasi’s objections to item songs, Sohai said that he was a modest person hence he would never stop someone else from doing any sort of work.
She also said that if she did not like any performance or work in particular, she would opt not to watch it or replicate it altogether. However I would not stop any person from doing it, she said.
Sohai cited reasons for item songs earning the ire of public. She said that the reason Pakistanis disliked item songs so much was due to the fact that the film industry was in a growing stage, where people dislike any small stuff. An industry attains the topmost level due to a combination of good as well as bad work, she explained.
Sohai Ali Abro has appeared in a couple of Pakistani movies such as Wrong Number and Jawani Phir Nahi Ani. She has shaken a leg to a number of songs and her dancing skills have been praised by critics and fans alike.
Hamza Ali Abbasi has been quite vocal against item songs and even chose not to promote his recently released movie Jawani Phir Nahi Ani. He has time and again called for censorship, as far as item songs are concerned and has stated that they are not part of Pakistani culture neither do you need to sell a movie with an item song.
Sohai Ali Abro has stated her opinions quite clearly for all to see. Do you support her stance on item songs?
