Adnan Siddiqui Talks About Khalil-Ur-Rehman's Misogynistic ViewsHe shared that the audience of Mere Paas Tum Ho is mostly comprised of men. “My first big hit was the drama Uroosa, which was also the first episodic serial that I acted in. Suddenly, I was a big favourite. But back then, my fans were mainly young college girls. Now, the fans are varied; from young girls to older women to men!

Adnan Siddiqui Talks About Khalil-Ur-Rehman's Misogynistic ViewsThe writer of the drama is Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar is a misogynist. In an interview, he gave derogatory remarks on women stating that a woman who was unfaithful was not a woman at all in his eyes.

On asking upon from Adnan, whether he thinks that the script is more inclined towards discrediting women?

“It is a very well-told story about something that truly does happen in Pakistani society,” he replied.

Adnan Siddiqui Talks About Khalil-Ur-Rehman's Misogynistic Views“That’s how it needs to be looked at. Ayeza may be the villain, but Hira Mani’s character is depicted in a positive light as an independent woman with strong values. Every TV drama has a story to tell and a lesson to give. I don’t think that the drama has been written specifically for men or for women — it is for the Pakistani audience, overall, and they are connecting well to it.”

Adnan Siddiqui Talks About Khalil-Ur-Rehman's Misogynistic ViewsAdnan further added that Qamar is a loud man and that’s how he is.“I wouldn’t have said what he said but that’s just the kind of person he is. He has his opinions and he’s unafraid to say them out loud. But look at the title song that he’s written. How effective his wordplay is. That’s what needs to be appreciated!”
