Actor Humayun Saeed lands in trouble over drama serial "Meeray Paas Tum Ho"
*ISLAMABAD - **Actor Humayun Saeed lands in trouble over drama serial "Meeray Paas Tum Ho".*
*The Sindh High Court has asked actor Humayun Saeed to appear in person and explain why he delivered offensive dialogues in Meray Paas Tum Ho, a TV show, written by Khalil Ur Rehman.*
On Wednesday, Justice Yousuf Ali Sayeed and Justice Muhammad Ali Azhar, heard a petition filed against the drama and instructed the federal government, Pemra and other respondents to submit their replies by February 13.
In her petition, Sana Saleem, claimed that the script contained derogatory language when talking about women and because of this, she wanted the writer, actor and producer to apologise.
Besides language, the petitioner also objected over “a divorced couple living together” and “a six-year-old playing matchmaker between his father and a school teacher”.
Her lawyer, Munir Gulal, argued that a line from show had become quite popular and had hurt the reputation of women.
During the hearing, the lawyer claimed that the drama had also portrayed Karachi’s image in a negative manner. He added that he had no issue with the TV serial’s last episode.
