Actress Mahira Khan was recently slammed by Pakistani TV actor Firdaus Jamal for not being fit for lead roles at 'her age'. Now, Mahira has come up with an epic response to Firdaus's comments questioning her profession and age. Mahira took to her Instagram account to post a long handwritten letter saying slamming the actor without naming him.

She wrote, "We are the present. What we do and how we do it, is our future. Thank you to all those who have come out to support me - I did not ask for it and that makes it even more special. As an artist, I am proud of my industry. I'm grateful to my senior artists for paving the way for people like me and so many others. I am also proud of myself. In this journey of mine, I can proudly say that I have done what I thought was right and never succumbed to what others thought was right for me. That - I will continue to do. InshAllah."

We are the present. What we do and how we do it, is our future. Thank you to all those who have come out to support me- I did not ask for it and that makes it even more special. As an artist I am proud of my industry. I’m grateful to my senior artists for paving the way for people like me and so many others. I am also proud of myself. In this journey of mine, I can proudly say that I have done what I thought was right and never succumbed to what others thought was right for me. That - I will continue to do. InshAllah. In a world full of hate, let’s choose to love. Let’s be tolerant of other people’s opinions and let our fight be against the mindset -that a successful woman is a scary thought. No it isn’t. It’s a beautiful and empowering one. Let us stop picking on one another so that this industry and our country thrives like no other. I read somewhere that ‘Stardom’ in Latin means - thank you to the fans when it was lonely. Stardom it is then! Love and Gratitude, X

Talking about Mahira on a Pakistani chat show, Firdaus had said that Mahira is not an ‘actress stuff’ and is just a mediocre model. He had said, ''Ek toh uski age zyaada hai. Is age mein heroinein nahi hoti, maa ki kirdaar kiye jaate hain (She is older now and one doesn’t play a heroine but a mother’s role at this age).''
