Yasra Rizvi Opened Up About Dunk Controversy

Yasra Rizvi got involved in a serious controversy when the promos of Dunk were launched. From the promos, we got to know that Yasra is playing the character of the wife of Professor Humayun who was an alleged harasser, whereas in real life Yasra exhibits herself as a true feminist. People criticized her for portraying a character who is the exact opposite of what she says she is, in real life. In a recent interview Yasra addressed the issue saying:

“It is an angel and it is true that people couldn’t differentiate between actor and character, even though these are two very difficult things. The actor’s duty is to perform different characters. But the people who criticize, after watching the words, grammar, and structure of their criticism I get to know that these people are at least this much-educated and have this much exposure that they can differentiate. However, taking a decision about an actor’s life just after watching a clip is a habit of canceling culture and exclusion”

“Now I did “Dunk” because I thought that I had already heard this story before the script came to me and I read this news keenly. Death of a man is not collateral damage for me” Yasra further added “Till now, no other drama had this much extensive discussion on the landscape of harassment. In the first 6,7 episodes, it’s not about truth and lies it is all about consequences. First of all, it’s a world where everybody has believed a woman, tables are turned and his wife and daughter are getting affected, now not all innocent people are watching this drama and those who are involved in such acts are also watching the consequences. There is not always one way of storytelling”
