Senior actors are not appreciated in Pakistan, Badar Khalil
KARACHI: Legend actress Badar Khalil says people retire in this country because there is no value for seniors.
On the show of Samina Pirzada, Badar Khalil said that the actor never retires well but he is in Pakistan and people retire in this country because there is no respect for the seniors. I look at value but people and channels in my field do not appreciate it.
Badar Khalil also said that these people give new faces more respect. I am not saying to honour them. I also encourage new artists, but that does not mean that senior artists are behind you. Give some respect to an artist who has played the role of an 80-year-old woman in her life, even the youngest, even in her 20s.
The legendary actress also said that the government of Pakistan did not give me the Pride of Performance Award but given the Lifetime Achievement Award which is a huge award for me but after that, I was given the Legend Award by the people which I was surprised. Because I was invited to the stage at an event and I realized that I was invited to distribute the award to the people, but there I was honoured and given the award for the legendary actress.
