Supermodel Iman Ali landed in hot water after she was called out for some of her comments by fellow model Mushk Kaleem. Iman recently made an appearance at Iffat Omar’s web show and talked about how models today are not as smart and knowledgeable as they used to be.
She also took a jibe at the way the models these days converse with each other
Iffat then weighed in on how important it is for models to be intelligent. “I think it back in the day being intelligent was a part of being a model,” Iman shared.
“But if you look at the state of it now…” the model went on to chuckle. “It’s not the same,” Iffat completed the supermodel’s sentence. “I’m not being elitist, but come on man,” Iman continued. “But it’s just the way they speak, I mean. Their basic general knowledge is just so…”
After Mushk, former supermodel and celebrity, Frieha Altaf also took to social media to call out Iman for her recent comments.
“I’m extremely surprised in Iman Ali’s behaviour,” the PR mogul shared on Twitter.
“She demeans not just models but criticised Mahira Khan and Fawad Khan,” Frieha added. She was referring to the segment when Iman was asked what the celebs would be if they weren’t actors. To this, Iman commented, “Fawad could have been a failed stand up comedian while Mahira should have stayed a VJ.”
Frieha went on to write, “A cheap publicity stunt as she has a movie coming up. Shame on anyone who ridicules success with condescension.”

Responding to Frieha’s tweet, famous designer Maheen Khan also shared her two cents on the ongoing matter.
“Disappointed is the word. In the end, Iman Ali will be the loser as she has revealed her true caliber. Very, very sad,” she wrote.
Frieha then shared, “I agree. I’m surprised. I know Iman, she has bravely fought MS (Multiple Sclerosis) over the years. She has never been this ungracious. This interview did not sit well.”
