Heeramandi: Yasir Hussain shows concern over people taking our stories
India has produced web-series on Lahore’s Heeramandi which revolves around the themes of love, betrayal, succession & politics in the ‘kothas’.
Taking it to instagram, Pakistani actor Yasir Hussain showed serious concern over “HeeraMandi” web-series production.
“This is Lahore and India is producing movie on this subject”, Yasir stated.
Moreover, he raised a question that why we (Pakistan) do not cover its stories?.
Earlier, Pakistani actress, Mansha Pasha was also not happy over the production of film on Lahore’s Heera Mandi in India.
“India is making a film on Lahore and the infamous Heera Mandi of yesteryears. Because we live in a country where fictional narrative is often censored”, Mansha stated.
She further added “everyone keeps arguing about what is or isnt “morally acceptable” fiction, others make most of the opportunity taking up the stories that are native to our country, brand them and sell them to the rest of the world. In the end what will be left will be our stories told from someone elses mouth.”
