PEMRA called Pakistani dramas ‘bold”

The media regulatory authority said that the quality of Pakistani drama has deteriorated over time.

In the notification, it said: “Unnecessary glamour, bold scenes are being shown in the dramas ignoring [the] religious, social, cultural and ethical values of the country.”

Pemra said that it has received a number of complaints from the general public in this regard. It also slammed the glamourisation of “indecent scenes/dialogues/extramarital relations, violence and exploitation.”

However, these sweeping generalisations did not sit well with actor Osman Khalid Butt.

He took to Twitter to say that not every drama  has to be family-friendly.

The actor, who has starred in television shows like Diyar-e-Dil and Aik Nayee Cinderella, said good television with strong content holds a mirror up to society. “[It] is meant to be uncomfortable. If you don’t like what you see, change the channel.”

Other people also criticised the regulatory authority’s statement.
