“I keep reading a lot of articles saying I’ve replaced Osman Khalid Butt. Not true. You can’t replace Osman. He’s Osman Khalid Butt. Can’t wait to see Balu Mahi,” Ahad praised Osman on his Instagram.
In a Facebook live chat on Balu Mahi’ official page, Osman also cleared why he dropped Parwaaz Hay Junoon. “There’s no controversial reason for me leaving Parwaz Hay Junoon. I left because the shoot was starting mid December, and I had promotions of Balu Mahi. But I am looking forward to watching the movie, and I am sure Ahad will do a great job,” he clarified.
