Nauman Ijaz takes a dig at national award winners

Popular Pakistani actor Nauman Ijaz is not one to shy away from making controversial statements.

His recent take on the awards conferred upon many members from the acting and related arts fraternity can only be described as a sarcastic jibe at the winners. 

He took to Instagram and said the following with a picture of himself:

‘Jin jin ko sitar e imtiaz mila un sab doston ko bohat bohat mubarik…
Mujhay lagta ha inko awards denay wallay ko beh
Sitara e jurat milna chaheay…
Pakistan zindabad’.

Roughly translated it reads:

‘congratulations to all my friends who received a sitar e imtiaz award. I think the ones who shortlisted the recipients should get a medal of valour and bravery’.
