Nauman Ijaz was under fire after his controversial interview went viral on social media. The veteran actor boasted about cheating on his wife without her finding out. The former Pakistani model Iffat Omar invited actor Nauman Ijaz as her first guest on her show on YouTube, Say It All with Iffat Omar.
Unlike her contemporaries, Omar touches upon hard-hitting subjects such as domestic violence and sexual harassment that continue to plague Pakistan’s entertainment industry. When asked about the secret of a successful marriage, Ijaz gives a candid response without feeling the need to mince his words.
The veteran actor went on to say that he is blessed to have such an understanding wife in his life. He always gets in love with pretty girls. He also added that whenever he gets a chance, he flirts with them. He has dated many girls but his wife never knew about it. He added the girls who he has affairs with, even their husbands don’t know about it.
We reciprocate our love and feelings for each other. As soon as the video went viral on social media, Twitterati were quick to slam him for endorsing infidelity and passing misogynistic comments.
