Fans Are Calling Out Iqra Aziz In ‘Jhooti', Her New Drama, For Being Problematic

By Maryam Khalid | 5 Jan, 2020

Iqra Aziz in Jhooti is being questioned for perpetuating problematic views

Pakistani dramas tend to be problematic, and are often called out for the same in today’s day and age of social media. The same has happened with the Iqra Aziz starrer Jhooti, an upcoming show that also stars Yasir Hussain and Ahmed Ali Butt in lead roles. The drama hasn’t come out yet but a promo just dropped.

 

Soon after the promo for Iqra Aziz starrer Jhooti came out it caused quite a stir on social media

In the teaser clip, we see a bruised Iqra Aziz calling out men for the abuse of power. On the verge of tears, she points at her bruises as proof of what her horrible husband did to her. When she is about to burst in tears, we see a speck of deceit in her eyes. The next few glimpses indicate that her character may have done this to herself. Finally, she applauds herself, as she was rehearsing in front of a mirror.

 

People were shocked at this drama’s teaser

They called out the drama for vilifying women as cheaters and liars

People stated that this teaser invalidates the struggles of all those women who have been abused.

Statistics were shared around the same to educate people who were influenced by Iqra Aziz and Jhooti

It seems to be a step backward, given the current situation in the country where survivors are already never actually believed.

 

People were also mad at Iqra Aziz in Jhooti for portraying such a role

Whatever the actual story is, let’s hope it isn’t based on faking abuse, as the teaser seems to imply. What do you think about this? Let us know.
