Fahad Mustafa comments did not sit well with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf senator Faisal Javed Khan, who jog the memory of Pakistani actor by telling him,
“Ertugrul’s fame should be a learning opportunity, instead of a threat. Engin Altan is one of the finest actors we have seen on TV and Dirilis Ertugrul brought him huge fame across the world. A lot to be learned from such a great production and the director’s meticulous attention to detail. It is not a threat, it’s an opportunity.”

Fahad Mustafa admits his hankering for money in an interview
Poignantly, Fahad self-proclaimed that he entered the industry with the grave intention of making money rather than the stimuli of professional delirium.
“Actors want to do my dramas, people want to watch my dramas, and producers and channels want to make my dramas. So what am I doing wrong here? I’m doing nothing wrong here. I make my shows for the awaam for those who stand in the jalsas. That’s my audience. The streets would be empty when it was on the air. What was that? A nephew and aunt having an affair. So when I make it, it’ll be called Jalan only, what else should I do? Add the word Shakespeare behind it? Those who are watching Game of Thrones, watching incest, enjoying it even, are criticizing our work, saying why we don’t make such content. What should we do, make it then? I was here to become an actor in the first place. I wanted to look like a hero. I’m not interested in giving you a message and there’s nothing wrong with it.”
Well, what would you suggest imputing the row or a conflict between the people of two different coliseums?
