Dur-e-Fishan would not want to do dramas like Kaisi Teri Khudgarzi again

Voicing Opinion

Drama Kaisi Teri Khudgarzi gathered all the hype last year but not for the right reasons. It was criticised for spinning a romantic storyline out of toxic masculinity and for being misogynistic to its core. Lead actor Dur-e-Fishan, who played Mehak, differentiated between herself and her character saying she would not want to act in it but she can’t deny that dramas like that do commercially well. In an interview with BBC Asian Network, she admitted that the drama put her on the radar. “i Kaisi Teri Khudgarzi made the producers or made me more feasible to the choices that I could say yes to,” she said. Though she wouldn’t personally vouch for a drama like that, she said it resonates with the society she lives in. “I would not watch a genre like that or would even like to work in something like this again. But I belong to a kind of society where people really like any woman being saved from any toxic area around.” She also stated how women are taught to rely on men. The actor said that though she has started to receive more scripts that portray women as independent beings, she wonders how they will perform.
