Drama `Udaari` aired on 10th April 2016 by Hum TV. As the episodes kept running in, did one realize, no, this is not another stereotype drama. As this serial showed the ugly truth of society which everyone keeps sweeping under the rug.
Nobody wants to speak about it, when someone does then it`s just taken as a joke and an example of this just happened last night at Hum Awards 2017. Ahsan Khan won an award for his performance in Udaari, for those who don`t know, he played the role of a child molester and a pedophile in that serial. No doubt, he did justice to his role. He did a phenomenal job.
Last night when Ahsan Khan received his award, the host of the night, Yasir Hussain made a comment `Itna khoobsurat child molester, kash main bhi bacha hota` (such a good looking child molester, I wish I was a child) where the audience, group of educated people, role models to many kids out there, sat and laughed.
One wonders, how such a serious topic became joke of the day?
PEMRA had given out a notice to ban Udaari because of it`s `immoral content` shown in the 8th episode, on 8th May 2016.
The crew behind this serial was adamant to keep going.
It gives awareness to children out there who are victims. Even for parents to trust no one when it comes to their children.
This is a serious crime, sexual harassment is NOT FUNNY.
