The drama broke all records when it comes to TRP. It also becomes third drama which’s last episode is going to release on Cinema. Despite the drama’s high ratings and unprecedented fan following, Khalil ur Qamar’s interviews and personal opinions on the plot of the drama became a point of contention. Along with love, the drama also has received its fair share of criticism due to some dialogues which when witnessed with his vision sound problematic enough. The latest is, it has once again received a lot of criticism for promoting misogyny. The writer Khalil ur Rehman Qamar has been criticized for moral policing women on and off screen, describing at length the characteristics of a ‘good’ woman versus a ‘bad’ one.
Rehmat Ajmal Expressed Her Concern
Recently Rehmat Ajmal who played Aisha expressed her concern after receiving criticism message in a lengthy open note. Expressing her concern she said in her social media statement that her role in the drama was limited. And she did not get a chance to see how the whole thing would come together. She was not aware of the entire story line or of Rehman’s ideology when she accepted the role.
Rehmat Ajmal’s Statement
She wrote, “I understand that we as artists have a social responsibility in terms of the content we produce and the messages we put forward – & that I take that responsibility with a lot of seriousness and dignity. I’ve been receiving a lot of concerned, hateful and confused messages since the past few months and as much as I want to address them individually, I think I’ll just give an overview of my perspective for now. I absolutely do not endorse the concepts and viewpoints of Mr. Khalil Ul Rehman.”
Adding further she expressed, “I watched Khalil ul Rehman’s interview and got to know about his problematic views on very many things WAY after the project was completed. I am not proud to be a part of something that is so compromising and ill-informed. However, I (like many others) was not aware of the entire story line or Mr. Khalil ul Rehman’s ideology at the time this project was shot – which was a year ago.”
Concluding her note she said because of her limited role she didn’t get chance to know the ideology of the writer. “My role in this project is limited. So, I did not get a chance to see how it’ll come together or how it’ll eventually unroll on television and that is where I think I slipped a little. It was my first ever telecom project and I am learning – I have learnt to be cautious and more conscious with my creative choices.
Please extend new, struggling artists some leeway as we are in the process of learning – we are also trying very hard to make our own mark solely based on our merit.”
