“A group of people came to me and asked for permission to write a book on my daughter Qandeel. However, they did not mention anything about a TV serial to me. They asked for the rights and gave me a sum of Rs50,000 and didn’t offer further compensation.”

He further claimed that he would not have given any permission to making a drama on his daughter’s life:

“I did not know who they were nor had I ever met them before. They just asked me to sign a piece of paper. I’m a Baloch and I would not have given permission for a drama which would feature immodest acts.”

He claimed that he just signed a paper in the presence of his lawyer:

“My lawyer was there and even he doesn’t know of any mention of a drama.”On being asked about demanding financial help he said, “When we didn’t even know about the drama how could we have made any demands? We did not have any (financial) demands then. However, we are poor people and if they can help us then we will be grateful to them.”

Azeem’s lawyer has also said that he did not know about any drama being made!
