Usman Mukhtar is a versatile and talented star who recently played the role of Dr Haris. His role has not been appreciated by people because they were expecting much more from his character.
From his entrance in drama, people started talking about Dr Haris and due to severe criticism Usman Mukhtar had gone through a lot.
In the interview, Usman Mukhtar shared, “Sabaat was a roller coaster ride inside it was filled with emotions but outside for me, it was filled with lots of emotions because people weren’t happy with the fact that I was not entering then when I entered people had an issue with the therapist-patient thing then when it got addressed people weren’t happy with the kind of role it was, so it was a roller coaster ride and it ended on a positive note.”
He further talked about whether he will take such role again or not and shared the reason, “I won’t ever take such a role because my mental health is also very important. We make somebody feel very special in one second and then we make them feel useless in another second. I have gone through a lot mentally during this entire period of Sabaat and just for that reason I wouldn’t want to do this again.”
Talking about the character of Dr Haris, he shared, “I never felt like it was a pathetic role rather it was a different role but I feel like we don’t like experimenting. I was offered similar roles to Altamash but I didn’t want to do that. I want to experiment and I want to do different type of characters so that’s why I did Dr Haris and also because of the positive message that it had.”
“But somehow our audiences take it too personally. After Anaa people had built up their expectations and I feel like they don’t wait. We love to create hot gossips which people love to share so in this way we don’t have patience. If you know about the ending of drama then why are you watching it? You learn about the characters and the story which unfolds with each episode but I feel like people assumed a lot and at many points, they were proved wrong,” he added.
Usman Mukhtar talked about the chemistry between Haris and Miraal and said, “Fans couldn’t see the chemistry between Miraal and Haris because it was not your typical love story. It was a very different kind of story, a different kind of dynamic but because we are kind of used to watching the typical rom-com with your protagonist so its an offbeat thing and that’s why audiences didn’t enjoy.”
