Drama serial Jalan has been the talk of the town due to its highly controversial content. The drama serial revolves around the story of a girl who falls in love with her brother in law.
Jalan is written by Sidra Sahar Imran and it’s her first drama serial. She has been working as a writer from quite a long time and has written many books.
In an interview, she talked about controversial drama serial Jalan and justified why she wrote such kind of story.
“I write on dark topics which is my identity. Jalan is a true story and the theme was how jealousy ruins relationships. The story was not about the relationship between Nisha and Asfandyar rather it was a story about jealousy .”
“There are few stories on which we write and the stories will repeat. We have two relationships which are between man and woman and stories will be on them. Everyone writes in their own way and I thought Sidra Sahar Imran will write Jalan in her way.”
The host asked the writer that, there are different people on earth and everyone carries their own story then why we have the same stories. Why don’t we show progressive stories about women?
Sidra Sahar Imran said, “The reason behind this is until we broaden our canvas, the writer community can’t do anything. The audience is responsible and most of them who watch dramas are middle-class women. Our channels and dramas run on TRPs and the drama which have highest TRP other dramas will be based on the same topic.”
“Criticizing is easy but people love to watch these dramas. If people want good content then people need to support it. Unless our government won’t support us criticizing our drama is useless,” she added.
The ending of Misha was hated by people and people wanted a different and good ending for her character but the writer said there was no other conclusion possible for Misha.
She justified and said, “I have always show Meenu as down to earth person who bears everything then how in the end I can show her as superwoman? A girl who has always been a giver cannot stand for her rights so suddenly. We all come across such a phase in life when we can’t take anymore and when Misha realized that Nisha took her everything then she decided to do it with herself.”
