Drama serial Laapata starring famous stars like Ayeza Khan, Sarah Khan and Ali Rehman Khan went on-air lately. Drama serial “Laapata” invited severe criticism after airing it’s first episode. The netizens slams ‘Laapata’ for propounding the idea that women who come out with harassment allegations are basically concocting stories to achieve personal and ill-intended gains. The clip shows Ayeza Khan(Geeti) blackmailing a poor shopkeeper with false harassment allegations.
Right after this clip started circulating on social media, singer Meesha Shafi and actor Adnan Malik took to their Instagram stories to slam the makers of the show for trivializing a sensitive subject like harassment, that too in a play starring some of the biggest names of the industry.
The viewers have a thought that at a time when the nation is screaming for justice and its women are dying each day, this scene barely comes off as humorous.
