Urwa Hocane calls out producer Nadeem Baig for ‘targeting’ her, says it’s ‘hurtful and malicious’

Lack of Respecting Opinions

Director Nadeem Baig and Urwa Hocane worked together for the first time for film Punjab Nahi Jaungi, released in 2017. Years later, when asked about the celeb he has had the most difficulty working with, he picked her. She then shared a note on Instagram writing, “It’s so unfortunate that the formats of our shows are such that each member of the industry has to put the other down for the sake of ratings in the garb of fun. Now that it’s come to this, I would like to elaborate my side of [the] story. Nadeem bhai and I have only done one project together and had one difference [in] opinion about the song Lak Hilna, where we eventually went with his aesthetics, choice of song and the dance step[s] as I sensed he was unwilling to hold a discussion.” She continued, “Despite being extremely trolled for the song, I never threw my director under the bus out of respect for him. I am so hurt [by] how my personality is being misrepresented publicly merely for holding a healthy discussion on set which I believe is [the] basis to team work while in all these years it was never pointed out to me in person.” she further added, “It’s hurtful and malicious. I really hope this makes everyone understand that these games can actually be harmful for someone’s mental health and well-being.”
