In order to educate the audience, renowned Pakistani actor Ahsan Khan expressed that all Pakistani dramas should include rape, violence, and all forms of abuse stories.
While giving an interview to a national media organization, the Pakistani actor highlighted that his role in the famous drama “Udaari” changed his perception about the world, as he played the role of a child abuser.
“I think the drama played a key role in normalizing the discourse around child abuse and that was quite fulfilling to see,” said Khan.
“Rape, violence and all forms of abuse are grave issues which should find space in our scripts but the key is to address the problem without sensationalizing it. Yes, we should convey the ghastliness of the crime but also realize that we are walking on a slippery slope,” he added.
It is pertinent to mention here that Prime Minister Imran Khan had appreciated many Pakistani actors including Yasir Hussain, Mahira Khan, Mehwish Hayat, Mansha Pasha, and Bushra Ansari for highlighted women and child abuse publicly to spread awareness.
