Meray Paas Tum Ho’s lead actor, Humayun Saeed has been summoned by Sindh High Court over the problematic dialogues he delivered in the drama written by Khalil ur Rehman Qamar.

In a petition filed by Sana Saleem, she alleged that the script routinely spotlighted offensive dialogues about women and wants an apology to the public for the same by MPTH’s writer, actor and producer. Lawyers on behalf of PEMRA and ARY were also present in court. The court questioned PEMRA’s representative regarding whether they have a way of monitoring dramas through in-house censors. While summoning Humayun Saeed, the actor who said the aforementioned degrading dialogue, the court also instructed the federal government, PEMRA and other respondents to submit their replies. 

Should actors be held accountable for the wrongdoing of a writer?

As actors, they make the conscious choice to act in a drama. They’re already given the script, and know of the plot. Humayun Saeed isn’t a new actor who doesn’t has any other projects other than this. Doing the drama was a choice he made consciously. If he doesn’t sees any problem within the offensive narrative, that says a lot about him as a person too.
