A video in which actors Saboor Aly and Saheefa Jabbar Khattak appear to be making fun of a window cleaner’s job has gone viral, with fans criticising the actors for their mockery of manual labour.

In the video that was uploaded on Saboor’s insta stories, Saheefa and Saboor are heard laughingly saying of a man wiping a window pane clean: “Kya kya khwab leke iss ki maa ne is ko ghar se bejha tha”, which loosely translates to “His mother must have had big dreams when she sent him to work.” It was later revealed that the man is actually a colleague of Saboor Aly, but many are stating that doesn’t excuse her behaviour.

Many have dragged the star for being elitist. She took to Instagram to say that an inside joke has been taken out of context.
