Actor Mikaal Zulfiqar believes the broadcasters should pay actors for the reruns of their dramas.

“If only we got paid for reruns,” said Mikaal, “[we] would never have to work another day in life.”

On Sunday, the actor posted a photo of his 2015 drama Diyar e Dil being rerun on HUM TV.

“Thank God a senior actor talked about it,” Yasir wrote. “Mikaal, you have rocked it.”

“I’m sorry, but we artists are working like donkeys nowadays,” said Noman, accusing broadcasters of not releasing salaries on time.
