Unfortunately our television producers have been banking on women who continuously shed tears in dramas for a really long time in order to get ratings. Many of the actresses have accepted openly that they get paid for crying, there are others who think it is their USP and there are also those producers who have no qualms accepting the fact that making women cry gets them the ratings they want.
Since this tried and tested formula sold many dramas, now some of the producers have started using the same tactic in morning shows as well. All over the world morning shows are motivating and inspiring because many people begin their day with watching these shows. In Pakistan however our script writers, whether they are writing script for a drama or for a morning show, are quite convinced that making people cry early in the morning can be just as beneficial for the viewers as it is at night (pun intended!).
A host does not necessarily have to be an actor because hosting is a completely different skill which should technically not involve acting but all the morning show hosts nowadays are actors tuned into hosts hence they make the most of their acting skills in morning shows as well. These women who we have seen crying in dramas so often are now using the same “skill” in morning shows as well in the hope that all those women who are sitting at home and watching their shows will think about how miserable their lives are and they will be able to relate to all the melodrama! In my opinion these actresses-hosts are not doing anyone a favor.
