However, within four months, he resigned from the post. In one of his Facebook posts, he talked about it. He said, The explanation I owe to my friends who have supported me so passionately. This is regarding the new film I have done. Even though it’s a brilliantly written and directed film, I disagree with certain elements in its execution which I regard as not in line with our culture. My motivation to do this film was never money. I refused 2 Indian films, Baby and a film by Sajid Nadiadwala because they were against our ethics. I did this film for my friends who were there for me when I was nothing. So after initial refusals, I agreed to do it as my friends needed me on this. Regardless of my reasons, I did something against what I preach and I own it. I will not try to get away with it by staying silent or defending it senselessly. I vow never to do anything against my beliefs NO MATTER WHAT. Since I failed to act on my own beliefs, I deem I am no more eligible to represent Pakistani culture in a political party and hence, I am resigning as Sec.
