Meray Paas Tum Ho actor Rehmat Ajmal who appears as Ayesha (Mehwish & Danish’s university friend) in the hit drama serial says that she is not proud to be part of it.

Despite being the blockbuster, Meray Paas Tum Ho has courted a huge amount of controversy based on its several dialogues. Also, the problematic statements by its writer, Khalil ur Rehman Qamar, in several interviews has made it a serious bone of contention.

Catering to the backlash that the drama (and actors) is receiving, Rehmat Ajmal, took to Instagram to share that she has been receiving a lot of hateful messages for being part of this drama.

Talking about the social responsibility that the actors have on their shoulders, she wrote:

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.

She added that she got to know about the views of Khalil ur Rehman way after the project was completed.

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.

Ajmal also mentioned that she is not proud to be part of Meray Paas Tum Ho.

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.

Rehmat Ajmal, while talking about her role in Meray Paas Tum Ho, said that it was very limited to get an idea of what the whole drama would eventually unroll on TV.

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.

She concluded by requesting the audience to give some leeway to new and struggling artists.

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.
