LAHORE – Actor Yasir Hussain has come under fire for his insensitive remarks about child molestation.

Presenting the award to the actor Ahsan Khan for a Negative Role in Udaari at HUM Awards 2017, Hussain allegedly said: “Aisa khoobsurat child molester, kaash main bhi bacha hota.”

The actor was, of course, dragged on social media for the comments.

However, the actor later apologised for his remarks. His friend Hassan Choudary posted a picture of him where he is seen holding his ears to gesticulate an open apology to his fans who got angered by his ‘unintentional’ apologetic remarks.
