Anas was recently accused of sexism after a quote of his about Hina's professional life went viral. Of marrying a woman from outside the industry, he told Hindustan Times, "I'm working in this industry; aur agar bahu bhi kaam karegi, toh ghar pe kaun rahega? (If my wife works, who will be at home?)" He said that his family is happy with his career in the industry.
