Mummy’s “Mummy, kya keh rahi hain” and “Aswad’s “Aswad’s “Kya keh rahi hain” are both suffering from the same condition (pun fully intended). On the top drama channel with the biggest ratings for the last ten years, I’ve been advertising how to STAY “patiently” in (violently) emotionally abusive relationships,” Kanwal stated in an open tweet addressed to the actor.

Following this, Mahira’s on-going drama was featured on the talk show, with the presenter pleading with her to ‘do better” for Pakistan.

“Mahira is also aware of and recognises the harm caused by regressive material that romanticises abuse,” says the author. “Yet she continues to play parts that contribute to the perpetuation of the same harmful narrative,” she said.
