Since then, fans have been waiting to see the real/reel life couple on screens. Although the duo was seen together in period drama serial “Angan”, the show per se, didn’t impress the viewers much due to many factors.

But that’s another story.

Yesterday, a teaser of the couple’s new project dropped by. Written by Farhat Ishtiaq, “yeh dil mera” will soon hit the screens on HUM TV. “Sahad” admirers rejoiced on the news and expressed their happiness on seeing them together again in a project.

However the teaser sort of backfired when people starting pointing out how subtly it is promoting workplace harassment.

The teaser shows Sajal in an interview with Ahad as her interviewer, asking some pretty profane questions. And Twitterati was quick to point out the wrongs in it.

People are sharing their stories of how they were harassed by their bosses and how this is so disturbing.

TV channels are being called out for romanticizing workplace harassment.

Some termed it as a desi version of “50 shades of Grey”. Yani too much he hogaya!

Some even pointed out how flawed the whole interview act is. From clothes to its professional structure, nothing went well with the onlookers.

Such was the intensity of the backlash that the writer herself came out and clarified that she would never pen down anything that will ever romanticize harassment or misogyny.

As they say never judge a book by its cover, it is too soon to say whether or not the drama is inadvertently glorifying workplace harassment. We do hope however, that the makers realize the sensitivity of such issues and handle them with maturity. The content makers need to put more thought while drafting the story and incorporating elements like these, in future.
