Urwa Hocane is one of the most popular actresses in the Pakistani entertainment industry. Urwa has been part of acclaimed Pakistani dramas like Udaaria, Meri Ladli, Meri Shehzadi and more. The talented actress has also become a producer and recently invested in her film, Tich Button, starring Farhan Saeed, Feroz Khan, Iman Ali and more. Starting her acting career in dramas, Urwa has always been drawn to good scripts, so it did not surprise many when the actress dissed misogynistic Pakistani dramas.
A throwback video of Urwa Hocane dissing misogynistic Pakistani dramas has been doing rounds on Instagram. In the reel, Urwa is seen lip-syncing to the audio that says, Inko itna batana chahti hu ki jitna tum logo ke pass total dimag hai, utna toh mera kharaab rehta hai. It translates to; I want to let you know that that amount of total brain cells you people have equals the amount of brain cells that do not work of mine.
The reel looks normal unless one sees the caption and connects the audio to it, which states that she has read three identical scripts from different production houses, and each one said that their drama would get good reviews. Urwa further divulged the misogynistic plots of the scripts, which involves a damsel in distress, a narcissistic, toxic man, and an evil mother-in-law. Urwa further added:
“The story is, 1 glorified psychotic narcissistic toxic man, churail saas, a bechari girl and a passive aggressive vamp who keeps seducing the gut and rightfully so.”

As soon as the video of Urwa surfaced online, netizens were soon connected the storyline described in the reel to the plot of Tere Bin. People in the comment section critiqued such misogynist content and applauded Urwa for speaking about it. They also demanded drama makers to produce quality content instead of repetitive misogynistic stories. Check out the comments:
The Pakistani heartthrob, Farhan Saeed, celebrated his 39th birthday on September 14, 2023, and his dear wife, Urwa Hocane, posted a cutesy wish for her hubby. Urwa posted two loved-up pictures of her and Farhan and, in the captions, wrote how grateful she is for his companionship and love. She sang heaps of praises for her husband and wished him the happiest birthday. Urwa further added:
“Zindagi dhoop tum ghanna saya! I can’t put in better words how grateful I am for your companionship & love, to have you by my side, my most wonderful human at heart & of course the most handsome! Happiest birthday to you! I love you!”
