Pakistani dramas have exhilarated with time, and many are acknowledged globally for their unique narratives. However, there was a real need for a different narrative that didn’t portray characters of women stuck in distressed marriages, victims of domestic or emotional violence, forced into marriage, or assaulted.
Many filmmakers and drama makers recognized the issue at hand and created opportunities for actresses to play more vital roles in authority. People thoroughly enjoyed films such as Ek thi Marium and Perwaaz hain Junoon, where we saw actresses playing notable roles, some also inspired by real-life national heroes.
