She participated in Pakistani-origin Noureen Khan's podcast, where she spoke more in Urdu than English.

Hira Mani shared clips of the podcast on her Instagram account, in which she answered a question in a British English accent, telling the host that her country is in Asia and that most of her followers speak and understand Hindi and Urdu, so she speaks mostly in Urdu.

In the program, speaking in a unique English accent, she said that she wants to speak English, but since she belongs to an Asian country, where Hindus and Urdu are spoken and understood, she has to use Urdu to connect with her fans.

In the program, apart from uniquely speaking English, she also spoke Urdu with an English accent and, at the same time, praised the host Noreen Khan's Urdu spoken in an English accent.

Her husband also participated in the podcast and spoke in Urdu there.

After a video of Hira Mani uniquely speaking English went viral, she was criticised for her accent, with some calling her accent a new version of 'British Asian'.

Many people described Hira Mani's English accent as artificial and useless, and people tweeted that they don't know why the actress always likes to show herself.

Some fans described her accent as a new version of Ahsan Khan's 'British Asian' accent.

It should be noted that the clip of Ahsan Khan talking to a reporter in British English a few years ago went viral in April this year, on which he also made an Instagram video.

In the said video, Ahsan Khan was seen saying in English that 'he is a British Asian person and he lives and works here and there i.e. UK and Pakistan'.

Ahsan Khan's video was mocked and now Hira Mani's video is also being mocked.
