Standup comedian and host of famous social media talk show ‘To Be Honest‘, Tabish Hashmi said his show is on the internet which is a ‘by-choice medium’ so no one is forced to watch it.
In an interview with Voice of America (VoA), Tabish replied to critics who think his show is anti-family and doesn’t meet the ethical values of a society like Pakistan.
“I heard a lot of negative comments about my show that it is against our societal norms. People often say it is not a family show, so who said it is?” Tabish shared.
“See, To Be Honest, was made for the Internet which is a by-choice platform. The one who clicks it, watches it. It’s up to you, whether you watch it alone or with family. I didn’t force you,” he added.
“In fact, I receive a lot of messages from old people that they watch my show regularly. I think that is what motivates me to ignore all the negativity,” he maintained.
To a query about coming into acting, Tabish said nothing is planned for now but a good opportunity may put him into it.
“See, I never wanted to be on screen. Accidentally, I came into hosting and my show became a hit. Similarly, I don’t have plans for acting, but if something good comes to me, I will do it,” he concluded.
