Shaista Lodhi said, “When I read Samjhota’s script, I was sure that I would do it, we all think that the parents are only there for house hold tasks after a certain age, I liked an elder couple’s love in the drama also I loved that they are showing marriage of that man. In Our society, when our parents reach a certain age, we think that they can’t marry, we don’t think about our parents marriage, I found it as food of thought. It is necessary, we should tell our elders that they have a life why we want them not to enjoy life, why we want our parents to rest or remain inactive. We, as society are ignoring elderly people, we only cater a certain age group which gives you rating. A lot of people are loving the drama. Watch out:
She further said, “why mother and father can’t love, why they can’t be happy, is it only the younger couples who can enjoy the life or share happy moments together”
