During the promotions of his upcoming film Quaid-e-Azam Zindabad, Fahad Mustafa made an interesting revelation about his daughter and her love for Korean pop music. In a recent interview with Fuchsia, the actor shared how his daughter was a fan of the popular k-pop group BTS, and how that is something he does not appreciate. His statement did not sit well with the netizens, especially BTS fans, also known as the BTS Army.
Speaking to the interviewer, the actor shared how his daughter doesn’t care much about his work because she’s a BTS fan now. And how he doesn’t really know much about them, and doesn’t care to know.
“I called them Behind The Scenes band and she responded with ‘no papa!’ It’s… I don’t know Bangtan So tol something, I don’t know,” he said.
He also expressed disappointment over how she chose to learn Korean over Sindhi. “She speaks Korean, she doesn’t speak Sindhi, what is wrong with these people?” he said.

While some fans expressed their anger in an insulting manner.
Fahad Mustafa be acting like he is some top class artist. Like sit your flop ass down, and maybe shut up if you don’t know how to use your mouth well. Stop disrespecting those artist which are 100000 times better than you and have a better career and message than you

A lot of people also pointed out how the actor needs to first look into the popularity of the Korean entertainment industry and their content and reflect upon his opinion.
Fahad Mustafa if you’re soo genuinely curious about Kpop then maybe research? Why everyone is so in love with their content? What makes their content worth watching? And then maybe you’ll realize what makes your content trashy and unlikeable 🤡

If I was a loaded producer, I would genuinely wonder what about Korean pop culture is appealing to my teenage daughter to the point that she is learning a new language.
But when you are Fahad Mustafa you can just invest in another show where a woman falsely accuses a man.

On the other hand, some fans spoke up in support of the actor, saying he didn’t say anything that deserves such criticism.

They also expressed how BTS fans are blowing things out of proportion.
BTS fans can’t take a joke lmao. Fahad Mustafa is our Pakistani artist. BTS ching chong taeyhun doesn’t even know pakistan exists or nah but bts fans are crazy for them lol , instead respect your own artist instead of going for someone who doesn’t even know your country exists

What do you feel about Mustafa’s statement? Was he right in his own way or did he go too far in order to disappoint the BTS Army?
