Here's what they have to say
Actor Sanam Saeed invited her fans to a thoughtful conversation about the kind of content they would like to see in Pakistani dramas and films.
“What stories do we want told?” asked Saeed. “What kind of content do you want to see in dramas on television and films?”
What stories do we want told? What is your favourite genre? What kind of content do you want to see in dramas on television and in films?

She wanted to know the genres the audiences want the makers to experiment with.
Her fans were quick to respond, and her post was soon flooded with ideas and preferences for diverse content.
A show where women don’t cry for 24 episodes straight.
A show that doesn’t revolve around falling in love or getting married or having children.
Any show without these things.

Actor Sarah Khan also revealed in an interview that she regrets playing a weak woman in her drama serial Mere Bewafa.

The drama showed a woman going back to the man who hurt her.
