During the conversation with Shoaib Akhtar, Fahad Mustafa was asked whether he feels bothered by a content creator who stars alongside him despite his 20-year experience. Fahad Mustafa responded that he did not have any problem with it. However, he believes that the term ‘content’ is overused.
According to him, most people are exploiting their families for the sake of making videos, even to the extent of filming in graveyards, which he considers inappropriate. He also mentioned that actors like him are used to working for 10-15 hours, whereas social media stars are not accustomed to such rigorous work schedules.
