Rehmat Ajmal Is Not Proud to Be A Part of ‘Mere Paas Tum Ho’!

Rehmat Ajmal expresses her views on the controversy surrounding ‘Mere Paas Tum Ho’

Model turned actress Rehmat Ajmal might have appeared late in the show, but she has managed to grab our attention with her performance as Aisha in the superhit drama ‘Mere Paas Tum Ho’.

Where the popularity of ‘Mere Paas Tum Ho’ has no match, the serial has also got its fair share of controversy. Khalil ur Rehman Qamar, the writer of this serial, faces a lot of criticism over his views on feminism and the character of a woman.

The cast of the drama especially female actors, also receive backlash for being a part of this story which many think, promotes misogyny.

Recently, Rehmat Ajmal took to social media sharing that she’s not proud to be a part of ‘Mere Paas Tum Ho’ and that she absolutely does not endorse the views on Khalil ur Rehman Qamar.

In a note that she shared on Instagram, Rehmat understands the role of an artist in the content they produce and she takes that responsibility very seriously.

I understand that we as artists have a social responsibility in terms of the content we produce and the messages we put forward – & that I take that responsibility with a lot of seriousness and dignity.

I’ve been receiving a lot of concerned, hateful and confused messages since the past few months and as much as I want to address them individually, I think I’ll just give an overview of my perspective for now.

She added that she was not aware of the entire story of Khalil ur Rehman’s ideology at the time this project was shot and her role is limited so she couldn’t get the chance to see how it’ll eventually come out on television.

I absolutely do not endorse the concepts and viewpoints of Mr. Khalil Ul Rehman.

I watched Khalil ul Rehman’s interview and got to know about his problematic views on very many things WAY after the project was completed.

I am not proud to be a part of something that is so compromising and ill-informed. However, I (like many others) was not aware of the entire story line or Mr. Khalil ul Rehman’s ideology at the time this project was shot – which was a year ago. My role in this project is limited so, I did not get a chance to see how it’ll come together or how it’ll eventually unroll on television and that is where I think I slipped a little. It was my first ever telecom project and I am learning – I have learnt to be cautious and more conscious with my creative choices.

Please extend new, struggling artists some leeway as we are in the process of learning – we are also trying very hard to make our own mark solely based on our merit.
