We don’t know what’s in that special flower-infused water that most famous people be drinking these days, but boy, they sure can’t digest criticism. Famous actress Bushra Ansari isn’t having any of it for her new drama, Zebaish. In fact, she’s wishing death and brimstone on her critics.
Having written and starred in it, along with some members of her family, Bushra has been going around wishing death upon those who dare to speak up about the drama serial!
Fans were sorely disappointed to read Bushra’s now-deleted Instagram rant, which was a response to her critique Amna, and read:
“They are the CORONAS IN OUR LIVES.. ALLAH WILL FINISH THEM INSHALLAH”
This had left a bitter taste and fans were quick to show their disapproval of the actress and her very petty remarks.
Here’s what happened
Aangan Tehra’s beloved alum, Bushra Ansari went so far as to call the reviewer at a local blog, Amna, a “cheap low-class person with gutter-level commenting”. This foul language obviously does not suit the veteran actress that we all love and respect.
Being a senior actress, we’d hope Bushra would take criticism gracefully, but she is having none of it. She was quick to dismiss any constructive criticism and bulldoze all over Anma’s character. Read her entire post below and see for yourself!
Galaxy Lollywood was quick to respond to Bushra’s ridiculous claims and sided with Amna on this one. They tactfully and tastefully explained how the writers represent the bulk of Pakistani drama audience.
We’d like to formally address the points she’s raised instead of engaging in petty name-calling. Amma is not and has never claimed to be a critic. She is simply a house wife who enjoys watching dramas and thus, representative of majority of our drama viewers.”

Bushra Ansari recently posted and deleted a very harsh judgment of our beloved Amma and her drama reviews. We’d like to formally address the points she's raised instead of engaging in petty name-calling. Amma is not and has never claimed to be a critic. She is simply a house wife who enjoys watching dramas and thus, representative of majority of our drama viewers. We make sure to give credit where it's due and have always tried to provide unbiased reviews which our follower family has greatly encouraged. Lastly, let's all learn to take criticism and collectively work for the betterment of our drama industry instead of making personal attacks. After all, it's Pakistan and our industry above everything. ?? P.s: In the midst of a pandemic, it really doesn't suit such influential celebrities to call a motherly figure corona and to wish death upon a family! #IStandWithAmma
To answer the “death by Corona” remarks, here’s how they responded.

Fans took it to the internet to express their disdain and disappointment in the actress.
What was this act by Bushra Ansari? Like, woman just calm down. First you wrote a pathetic drama and took your whole khandaan in it who have done nothing but overacting and if people are calling that you're wishing Corona and death upon their family? Fuck you and your mentality! pic.twitter.com/C9Jxm5cWpS

This is appalling. I understand that the style in which Amma comments on dramas may not be everyone’s cup of tea but you can tell she doesnt do it in a malicious way. And okay, if Bushra Ansari has an issue with the way this is reviewed what about Something Haute’s review? https://t.co/HCWVTiLA12

Some were also quick to point out that Bushra Ansari’s niece, Zara Noor Abbas, who also stars alongside the actress in Zebaish, has been gracefully accepting criticism and maybe Bushra ought to learn a thing or two from her!
Her niece Zara took the criticism so sportingly and this lady is legit wishing death upon them? clearly shows who has class n who doesn't.

Some of the fans even demanded that she formally apologize to Amna for such tasteless jabs.
This is beyond human decency!! Bushra Ansari should apologize. Its not people's mistake that you have produced such a rubbish drama. Why other dramas garner appreciation then? Its your bad work Bushra Ansari. Calling someone cheap and low class. I mean shame on Bushra Ansari!
