ACTOR Fizo Omar (pic) lost more than 5,000 Instagram followers after playing the role of Ikram – an antagonist in the drama Adellea Sofea – which aired over TV3, reported Harian Metro.
Fizo said his characterisation of Ikram really affected some of the viewers.
“More than 5,000 stopped following my Instagram. To those who unfollowed me, please don’t be so emotional. Once the series is over, please follow me again.
“There are only two more days left. I’ll do better after,” he said.
Fizo also “blamed” his predicament on Adellea Sofea’s director, Shahrulezad Mohameddin.
“This is all Shahrulezad’s fault. Thank you for bringing to life the character of Ikram as a villain and also sharpening my acting skills,” he added.
Shahrulezad had said some fans were so carried away that they treated Ikram’s character as Fizo in real life.
