We all know that actor Osman Khalid Butt is one of the most vocal celebrities in Pakistan. He has a commendable sense of awareness and is very conscious when it comes to talking about what matters. He tends to raise his voice for anything he believes and doesn’t shy away from speaking his mind.
For instance, he talked about a notice released by PEMRA last year where they asked TV channels to be more vigilant while creating TV content considering the fact that kids also accompany their parents while watching the dramas that are aired.
What, pray tell, is the 'true picture of Pakistani society'?
Not every drama serial is meant to be watched with the family. Pinky & Babloo can be put to bed before, no? How is television content expected to diversify when we get sweeping generalizations like this: https://t.co/0sHwMVGtDc

Obi has also remained pretty vocal about the MeToo movement.
Reading utter tone-deaf comments/statements regarding the #MeToo movement & feminism in general. Gender sensitivity training should be mandatory across all fields.

I mean, he’s even received an award for ‘Agent Of Social Change’ at the Masala Awards.
So yeah, lets get back to the point. A few days ago, Obi satirically tweeted about how Pakistani males depicted in dramas somehow have ‘super sperm’ that manages to get 100% results every time.
And, I mean, dude’s got a point
I swear, male leads in Pakistani dramas must have super sperm or something – pregnancy rate: 100% that too after just one night.

Usually a tweet like that sets social media ablaze. But what really intrigued me, was the fact that his tweet garnered such interesting replies ke obviously, I HAD to compile em’.
This guy said that sometimes men can even impregnate a woman by giving them a “bad boy stare”.
Hahahah… oh c’mon.. they can get women pregnant with thier “I’m kinda a bad boy” Stare.

Then this person highlighted that its all about “good Swimmers”.
They've got good strong swimmers.

Even the “magic of the wand” came up!
It’s all in the magic of the wand !

And they agreed that Obi had hit the nail on the head.
Hahaha this is hilarous but so true 😂😂😂

And, well…. “fertility goals”
Hahahahaha fertility goals 🤣🤣

This guy reaffirmed Pakistanis actually do have “super sperm”.
We Pakistanis have actually super ones the reason we got 15,000 babies on new year Lolz 😂😂😂
— Inam Satti (@inamsattipk) January 5, 2019
Good to know.
Someone highlighted how, at least, Pakistani men don’t take a decade to deliver the baby like the infamous Star Plus serials.
But Thank God our dramas dont take 10years like starplus serials to deliver a baby
— Ayesha Butt (@ayeshababar1234) January 5, 2019
Someone was wondering which actor is Obi pointing at, and this person had the perfect reply.
there are many….even those who may not imprignate a woman in ten years in real life.

It was like a show where everyone has an answer for everything.
We have over population problems because people don’t have jobs and “ghar beth k aur karna b kiya hai” 👍👍
— Romeoo (@romeoomustlie) January 6, 2019
And well.. the “Baaghi” actor was applauded for being opinionated.
Ok ok! Someone here is very loud and intehae opinionated bhaeee ! Wohoo 😆
— KainatBaloch (@KhanKainat15) January 5, 2019
But then, people also talked about how other things like divorce and suicide are being promoted by Pakistani dramas and it is just not cool anymore.
Also suicide rate that too is 100%!
3 days back i stopped at hum or geo tv for a while (not sure) where i saw promos of 3 dramas with suicide scenes straight..
— Sadia Habib (@SadiaHabib17) January 8, 2019
They discussed how TV Channels need to re-evaluate their dramas before airing them.
And what about talaq rate? That too is 100%. @Humtvnetwork really needs to re-evaluate what these dramas are teaching the younger generations. It's easy to get pregnant but its easier to get divorced if you don't want to continue with the marriage! Funny and very sad.
— Sidra Nauman (@SilentSidra) January 5, 2019
And then this debate went a little further.
I agree. It's the one thing Allah declared Halal despite hating the act. But every shadi in every drama is nakam?
— Sidra Nauman (@SilentSidra) January 9, 2019
Khair, all I can say is, Obi, you be the man! HILARIOUS point, and valid too. Do y’all have anything to add? Let us know in the comments.
