Zahid Ahmed is an actor with charming personality and heart of gold. The heartthrob has become a sensation on TV. He charms all with his good looks and acting skills on small screen. Known for his ultimate chocolate hero-image, he enjoys the status of being one of the most handsome and dashing man in our telly town. Having number of mega hit serials under his belt, he became a household name and nation’s all time favorite heartthrob. Having made his debut in the world of acting with Siraj Ul Haq directorial Mehram where he portrayed Hamza, the truth is that fame did not come easily to Zahid Ahmed. He is basking in the glory of not one but two hit dramas back to back these days namely Ishq Zahe Naseeb and the recently concluded Mein Na Janoo.
In the recent interview with Iffat Omar, the actor poured his heart out and revealed how he used drugs at one point in his life. But he has finally quit and opted for a healthier life. The actor continued and stated how there is enough drama in the world; society has completely changed. Zahid Ahmed added, “Karachi is the second most popular city when it comes to marijuana consumption, so we should talk about it. My sons are growing, and in their surroundings, people use it because it’s common.”
Adding further he stated “In Islamabad, crystal meth is being sold on school campuses, and crystal meth is death. The person who uses it dies in 2-3 years.” Talking about his experience, the Besharam actor also said, “It’s my 10-15 years of experience, and I want to say, if it has no side effect, then it has no advantage as well. When I left drugs, I felt a lot of change.” The actor urged and advised the young generation to think about this and stop using drugs because it’s harmful to your mental and physical health.
Adding further he expressed “Why are we not talking about it? When will we talk about it? Why are you judging it as a sin? It is in our society, and I have made a whole video on this topic on my channel. If you see youngsters, they say that marijuana and hash are not haraam in Islam and it has no side effects. I can say when you are high, it becomes damn easy to not give a damn about anything, and because of this, people use it. After listening to this, it must sound positive, but if you see it from another perspective, it is about ‘you are not giving damn about anything in life”.
“When you are high, you are not giving damn about relationships and not bother about anything in life. You are detached, numb, and it is an easy escape from life. You stop growing as a person completely,” Zahid Ahmed further added.
