On the other hand, Rashid Mahmood expressed his views and said that the managers and producers present with me are like my children. All these people are close to my heart and my protest is not against them but against the system of this institution. It was against who is running this system.
Expressing his indignation, Rashid Mahmood said, "I am having trouble paying Rs 20,000 to the people running the system of this institution and Rs 2 lakh to the other members of the same team." The senior actor said, "And here I have not one but hundreds of examples. I can name them whenever I want."

He said that the check of Rs. 620 has gone straight to my heart. I am in a lot of pain which I cannot even describe. It seems that my years of hard work have been trampled. "After all this, the management people apologized to me and I accept the apology of all my children, but Rashid Mahmood inside me is not accepting this apology," he said.
Rashid Mahmood further said that now that these children of mine have apologized to me, all my grievances have been cleared and one of the reasons for accepting this apology is Pakistan Television Network because Pakistan is associated with the name of this organization. It has happened and I will leave my interest before anything where Pakistan's name will be.
He said that PTV is my mother institute from which I got recognition and Ladley is my child in all aspects of management. In the end, the actor thanked all his fans and admirers for their love. It may be recalled that the state TV channel had recently given a check of only Rs 620 to Rashid Mahmood for reciting an obituary in Muharram, after which Rashid Mahmood had announced not to work on the state TV channel anymore.
Rashid Mahmood said that the state TV channel had ridiculed my years of service by sending a check of Rs. 620.
I remember the day I had visited PTV some years ago and was shocked to see such a senior & respected artist urging for his (very small) payment to be cleared. I had conveyed that I would not take mine until his was cleared with the hope that things would change sooner than later. https://t.co/IiLTgiSJzL— Ali Zafar (@AliZafarsays) September 13, 2020
Singer Ali Zafar and actor Shamoon Abbasi also expressed their displeasure over the state TV channel giving a check of only Rs 620 to a senior actor for reciting an obituary in Muharram.
