Pakistani actress and producer Javeria Saud’s upcoming web series, Aurat Gardi is based on Aurat March. The web series tells the story of women raising their voice against the patriarchal society. It stars Alyy Khan as the antagonist.
Every year, on March 8, Aurat March is held to observe International Women’s Day. It was first held in 2018 in Karachi and now it is organized in all the major cities of Pakistan.
The trailer of Aurat Gardi was released recently and it seems that the story is somewhat related to Aurat March. As you all may remember, Mera Jism, Meri Marzi slogan became the most debated slogan from last year’s march.
And we see that it has been used once again in the web series. The trailer shows Javeria Saud and Alyy Khan engaging in a heated debate over the slogan Mera Jism Meri Marzi.
While women stand in the crowd, holding placards and chanting slogans, they are opposed by a group of men. A face-off ensues as Aly Khan, who arrives on the spot with his convoy, meets Javeria heading the march
“I am a woman, I am free. My body is not your property,” says Javeria Saud while expressing the struggles of women to acquire control over their bodies in a patriarchal society.
Aurat Gardi will premiere on UrduFlix on April 2, 2021. It has been directed by Awais Sulaman and produced by Rao Ayaz Shahzad with Farhan Gauher as Executive Producer. Mansoor Saeed has penned the script.
