The latest episode of Laapata kept viewers on the edge of their seats. The slap scene went viral on social media, with netizens praising Sarah Khan for her performance as Falak. However, the viral slap scene also sparked a debate among netizens and showbiz stars. Muneeb Butt and Mathira have also shared their take on the ‘viral slap scene’.

A scene from Episode 12 instantly became the talk of the town as it shows Falak’s courage in the face of abuse. When her husband, Daniyal slaps her, she slaps him back and warns him not to lay his hands on her ever again.

 

Was the slap scene in Laapata necessary?

Many lauded Sarah Khan for putting an end to domestic abuse in Pakistani dramas, but some were unimpressed. Muneeb Butt and Mathira sided with the latter fraction as they felt that violence shouldn’t be portrayed on television. Here’s their take on the slap scene.

Both Muneeb and Mathira are right. But we have to acknowledge the fact that domestic violence exists in our society and so many women are the victim of it. So many women don’t speak up about it or seek help, but Falak showed them that they shouldn’t take abuse from anyone, even if it is the man they love and married.

While there are dramas that highlight the issue of domestic abuse, Laapata‘s Falak showed the importance of women standing up for themselves.

What are your thoughts on the viral slap scene? Let us know in the comments.

  1. I loved it coz wen u r married doesn’t mean u brought the girl to treat like animals that to r equal to men … Nowadays people have stupid mind for eg : dukan may koi cheez Pasand ajayay to kharidanay ki zidd Hoti hy r jab kharidlo to sirf 2 ya 4 din Khushi say istemal karo pir phanko torro … Wasay hi biwi koi cheez nai Hoti apki izzat hy r izzat dogay to izzat milagi…..

  2. You are right that two wrongs don’t make one right but why all this us being said only on a women expense? What if falak slaps him first would you suggest her husband to ignore it or say the same to him that two wrongs don’t make one right?ha ….we all choose what suit us …Pakistani women need to know to fight back and stand for themselves…

  3. It is more of men but women also resort to physical abuse of children and husband .media must reflect the social ethos for awareness and correction. Great scene episode 12 laapata.

  4. It is more of men but women also resort to physical abuse of children and husband .media must reflect the social ethos for awareness and correction. Great scene episode 12 laapata. However a message that physical abuse is not okay and not acceptable must be included in the dramas .
