Seems like Waseem Badami’s show, Har Lamha Purjosh has become the birthing centre for a number of controversies these days. First it was Ali Azmat claiming Ali Zafar organized a hate campaign against the PSL V anthem, next came Sonya Hussyn denying she knew anyone by the name of Faryal Mehmood and now its veteran writer Khalil ur Rehman Qamar, who simply knocked off claims made by Sonya Hussyn who stated that she had rejected to play Mehwish in Meray Paas Tum Ho.
Answering Waseem Badami’s question about Sonya Hussyn rejecting Meray Paas Tum Ho because of Khalil ur Rehman Qamar’s idealogy; the Pyare Afzal writer stated, “Even if she had accepted the role, the final ball would have been in my court because no director or producer can finalize the cast on my script without me having the final say.”
“Sonya Hussyn was never in my books for that role,” Khalil ur Rehman mentioned.
Khalil ur Rehman also stated that Sonya Hussyn hadn’t reached the calibre to do a script written by him. And that the reason she had rejected the script was entirely different to what Sonya said on air. “When Sonya met me in Lahore, I asked her whether she had refused my script and for what. Sonya had stated that when the role had been offered to her, Humayun Saeed hadn’t been cast as the male lead.”
Khalil ur Rehman Qamar also talked about Rehmat Ajmal and her disagreement with his idealogy even after being a part of his drama. “Since the drama had already become a big hit, Rehmat, wanted to earn more brownie points by standing out and making a different point. Had she agreed in the start, it would have been something else, but she promoted the show till the last day, only to disagree later.
