Nia Sharma, Reem Shaikh, Jannat Zubair Mock Sharmin’s acting

Nia Sharma, Reem Shaikh, and Jannat Zubair have sparked controversy by mocking Sharmin Segal’s portrayal of Alamzeb in the web series Heeramandi. Their recent video has ignited discussions across social media, highlighting mixed reactions from fans and viewers alike.

Sharmin Segal’s Underwhelming Portrayal

Sharmin Segal’s portrayal of Alamzeb in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Heeramandi has been a hot topic since the series premiered. Critics and fans have slammed her performance, calling it “expressionless” and a poor fit for the character. Clips from the series have gone viral, with many contrasting her portrayal with that of Aditi Rao Hydari, noting that Hydari’s character exhibited more emotional depth even in tragic scenes.

The Viral Mocking Video

Taking the criticism a step further, television actors Nia Sharma, Reem Shaikh, and Jannat Zubair shared a video on their Instagram handles where they mock Sharmin’s performance. The trio, sitting together on their show’s set, re-enact a scene from Heeramandi with poker faces, mimicking the lack of expressions attributed to Sharmin.

Divided Reactions from the Internet

The video has left the internet divided. Some users found the mockery entertaining and joined in trolling Sharmin. Comments like “No Alamzeb was harmed in this video” and “Sorry, no one can beat Sharmin” reflect the humor some found in the TV actors’ performance.

However, not everyone was amused. Many criticized Nia, Reem, and Jannat for their lack of respect and professionalism. Comments such as “at least Sharmin suited her character, these TikTokers can’t do anything” and “look at the audacity… all 3rd class actresses mocking another actress” showcased the backlash against their mockery. Some even pointed out the hypocrisy, suggesting the TV actors themselves lack the talent to perform in films.

Sharmin Segal’s Inspiration from Meena Kumari

Adding to the controversy, Sharmin recently mentioned that she drew inspiration from Meena Kumari’s ‘nothingness’ in the classic film Pakeezah for her role in Heeramandi. This statement did not sit well with the late actor’s stepson, Tajdar Amrohi, who expressed his discontent over the comparison.

The debate over Sharmin Segal’s performance in Heeramandi continues to escalate, with prominent TV actors now joining the fray. The divided reactions highlight the subjective nature of acting and audience expectations. While some find humor in the mockery, others see it as a disrespectful act towards a fellow actor. Regardless, the incident underscores the intense scrutiny actors face in the digital age, where performances are not just reviewed but can also become the subject of public ridicule.
