It’s not even been a day since singer Papon is facing molestation charges against him. The live streaming video of this music reality show judge went viral yesterday. Post that, he found himself in the midst of legal charges filed by a Supreme Court lawyer for forcibly kissing a minor. And now a similar incident is being faced by Pakistani celebrities. Veteran actor Javed Sheikh is now facing the wrath of Mahira Khan fans. They have accused him of forcibly trying to kiss the actress on stage.
Yes, a video of an awards gala that was attended by Mahira Khan and Javed Sheikh has gone viral on social video. The video was taken during an awards function where Mahira arrived on the stage to receive the award. While she walked towards Javed to greet him, the video features Mahira moving her way as soon as Javed tried to give her a peck on the cheek.
Many of the actress’ fans were miffed with the same and went on to accuse senior actor Javed of misbehavior. However, there were some who considered this as an awkward misunderstanding.

Clarifying on the same, Mahira Khan took to Twitter to speak on the incident. She dismissed the kiss calling it ‘silly stuff’ that people like to float around. The Pakistani actress also went to confess about the respect she has for Javed Sheikh. She wrote, “I have just woken up to such silly stuff floating around. It’s good to be aware and have an opinion but for Gods sake don’t use anything and everything to make news. Javed Sheikh of all people! He is a legend and a mentor to all of us in this industry. Would vouch for him always.”
On the other hand, some of Javed fans too came on social media to comment on the situation. Some of them were of the opinion that Mahira’s post should have included apology. Some even accused her of making a fool out of Javed in the video.
