Dur-e-Fishan is Not a Fan of Toxic Romance in Pakistani Dramas

“We belong to the kind of society where people really like any woman being saved from any toxic area around her”

In a BBC interview with Haroon Rashid, Pakistani actress Dur-e-Fishan Saleem discussed how our society is fascinated with toxic heroes who save the heroine in the end, and how women end up falling in love with these toxic men.

“I doubt Dur-e-Fishan Saleem would watch shows like Kesi Teri Khudgharzi,” the host asked. “So, why do you believe dramas like KTK are so popular?”

In response to this question, Dur-e-Fishan stated,

I would not watch a genre like this. Or would even like to work in something like this again. But I belong to the kind of society where people really like any woman being saved from any toxic area around her. Our audience are just focused about a girl needs to be saved by a boy and no matter how that boy saves you.

Furthermore, she said,

It’s more to how we raise a women in our culture. We just tell them that, you know your brother, your husband, your father is supposed to be around you. So I feel like when I was reading the script I would not have acted the way Mehak did in Kesi Teri Khudgharzi because Mehak is a Pakistani girl who has no experience of boys who is never told that you are good for yourself

It’s worth noting that Dur-e-Fishan Saleem’s mega-popular project Kesi Teri Khudgharzi starred her as Mehak, a timid and submissive middle-class girl who fell in love with her abductor.

The drama’s hero was at his most toxic when driven by his obsession, he went to any length to marry Mehak despite all the odds.
