.The Pakistan International Screen Awards are right on the corner and the nominees for the respective drama serials have been announced. Nabeel Zafar who plays the role of Nabeel in the famous comedy Drama serial has also made it to the nominee list being nominated for the Best Actor in Comedy Role.
However Nabeel Zafar who has been nominated for the awards will not be attending the ceremony due to some unethical moves by the organizers and to clear all misunderstandings he posted on his facebook handle “For the last couple of days you guys saw me being advertised and nominated in an Awards show ‘Pakistan International Screen Awards 2020’ for my performance in Bulbulay. Its a recognition that I feel has been given to me by all my fans who like my work in Bulbulay. I was approached by the organizers through their PR company Bodybeat and requested to attend the show in Dubai on Friday, 7th February 2020. Like me there were many of my colleagues and renowned actors who were asked for documents to travel today. Now suddenly the organizers have stopped their communication and put us in deep confusion as many of you in Dubai have been asking about our appearance in the show. This is total mis commitment as our names were used to promote the Awards show and now such an unethical move by the organizers is simply embarrassing. Such a move is an insult to me and many other artists who were contacted and committed to travel. It will also bring a bad name to our industry specially in front of people who have bought tickets to the show. To all the people who are expecting us in Dubai, Let me categorically inform you all that I will not be a part of the show.”
