“Why does Danish always choose such characters?”

Hum TV’s upcoming prime-time drama serial, Teri Chhaon Mein, starring Danish Taimoor, has generated significant buzz with its recently released teaser and poster.

The drama features Laiba Khurram in what is her debut as a main lead.

Written by Radain Shah and directed by Abdullah Badini, the serial is produced by Momina Duraid Productions.

The teaser provides a glimpse into the love story of Salaar (Danish) and Wadeema (Laiba).

However, some viewers have expressed disappointment and frustration with Danish Taimoor’s choice of roles.

They have perceived him as repeatedly portraying mature, toxic male leads who forcefully marry and subjugate women.

One questioned: “Why does Danish always choose such characters?”

Social media users have voiced their discontent, with one user stating:

“Whenever a director wants to make a cringe story, he contacts Danish Taimoor.”

Another user urged his wife Ayeza Khan to intervene and discourage him from taking on such roles.

One asked: “Ayeza, why don’t you stop Danish from choosing such dramas?

“He is such a good actor but he is wasting himself in such useless projects.”

Additionally, some fans have expressed disapproval of the significant age gap between Danish Taimoor and his co-star Laiba Khurram.

A user wrote: “They could be father and daughter, yes, but they can not be a couple. This is just absurd.”

Another added: “This is so weird. Laiba looks like a literal child in front of him. They are romanticising the drastic age gap between couples.”

Laiba Khurram, a TikToker by profession, has also faced scrutiny for her debut as a main lead. Some questioned her suitability for the role.

One user said: “She is not talented enough to be a lead actress, nor does she fit the beauty standards. Frankly speaking, she is not pretty at all.”

The serial’s storyline has also drawn criticism from some viewers who are disenchanted with the perpetuation of such narratives.

One person asked: “This is what you are teaching our young girls?

“Showing them suppression and making them internalise it? So disappointed.”

The debate has also raised questions about the responsibility of actors, especially in selecting roles that promote positive and healthy representations of relationships and gender dynamics.

Others defended Danish Taimoor.

One said: “Leave him alone. He is a film star. Irrelevant comments will not bother him.”

Another wrote: “I think Danish is doing a great job.”
