Dur-e-Fishan Saleem is an emerging name of our dramas. She made her acting debut in the blockbuster drama Dil Ruba and now she is appearing in the drama serial Pardes. Dur-e-Fishan recently gave an interview to BBC Asia and she talked about the portrayal of women in our dramas.
“I think woman runs our whole narrative on TV, mostly we show those women who are a part of our society. I am not saying that TV is not representing our society correctly, it is, but I believe that TV should be portraying our society in such a manner that our society would think of changing itself. We praise those women who are crying and who are returning back to a man who belittles them. That’s what our audience likes.”
Dur-e-Fishan then gave a reference to her own drama serial Pardes saying: “Zubaida in Pardes is glorified because she is compromising. It isn’t a slight compromise that we all should do but she is compromising to a point that she is neglecting her children.”
