| Some call him arrogant and blunt, others call him debonair and devastatingly handsome. Nevertheless, Shaan is the bad boy of Pakistan's film industry. With an attitude that has miffed many, Shaan has always managed to be in the news for all the wrong reasons.
Lately, Shaan has been quite vocal when expressing his views on films released in 2008; take the case of Jawed Sheikh and Mehreen Jabbar's films. For Mehreen's Ramchand Pakistani says he, "Bad! Mehreen needs to actually sit down and figure out what she wants. If the country is like a burning house and if I make a film on flies, where is the relevance? The film should make a statement about the present-day situation highlighting her point of view. Ramchand Pakistani doesn't do that. She should stick to making plays and moreover she is a Jabbar, she doesn't need to work."
