The new drama of Ayeza Khan, Laapata became an internet phenomenon overnight as it sparked a significant backlash amid Pakistan’s continuing femicide.

A scene from the drama serial, in particular, has upset netizens, who have expressed their displeasure with Ayeza Khan and director-writer Khizar Idrees for their reckless behavior.

Jumping onto the bandwagon, prominent celebrities slammed the scene and felt that it belittled the movement that has finally enabled women to break the silence and report harassment.

Sharmila Faruqui has also joined the critics’ circle, expressing her disappointment with the drama Laapata.

“Appalled to see a clip from drama serial ‘laapata’ where Geeti played by @ayezakhan.ak is seen blackmailing a shopkeeper with false harassment claims. Trust me, harassment is real, it’s hurtful and just destroys you. ”

“Women In our country have been going through hell for crimes against them.. such Pakistani dramas which show extreme insensitivity towards such issues need to take responsibility for such poor depiction of real-time issues being faced by women across the country.” she urged

Further, the politician added, “The general public idolizes dramas and the stars working in them. What message are you sending across to them? Our country has seen an unfortunate surge in horrendous crime against women and humanity at large.”

“This only makes it worse…. P.s I love @ayezakhan.ak otherwise for her worthwhile performances in other dramas,” She ended by complimenting Ayeza’s performance.
