Seemi Raheel Says “humour” Is Dead In Pakistan
The actress who devoted her entire life to art says humour is confused by vulgarity and vile language.
Seemi said that humour is confused by vulgarity and vile language but the reality was different. She expressed these views during an interview to a news organization here on Monday.
“I believe that humour is dead in our country now,” said Seemi Raheel, pointing out that it was mixed up and confused with vulgarity and vile language and the reality was that it was not like that.
She also emphasized over greater need for social commentary at this point in time than ever, pointing out that people had personal perspectives about everything and everybody knows everything. She also quoted Alice in Wonderland who had said: “ If you don’t know where you’re going, any road would do,”. She stated that one must comment on social attitudes to remind people where they were going.
Seemi Raheel said that humourists are people of another breed.
To another question that who was her favorite, she replied that Shoaib Hashmi and Anwar Maqsood were great inspirations to her.
“I regard both Shoaib Hashmi and Anwar Maqsood as great satirists and genuine humourists,” she added.
She devoted her entire life to art and drama and was still motivated.
