Model turned actor Rehmat Ajmal recently made her acting debut with Mere Paas Tum Ho, the most talked about drama serial at present. The drama has been receiving praise and criticism alike, for the same reason: its dialogues; penned by Khalil Ur Rehman, who is making the most number of headlines lately.

Rehmat too has been receiving a lot of “concerned, hateful and confused messages” for some time. She finally decided to address them in a recent social media post.

“I absolutely do not endorse the concepts and viewpoints of Mr. Khalil ul Rehman,” she asserted, adding, “I watched Khalil Ur Rehman’s interview and got to know about his problematic views on very many things WAY after the project was completed.”

“I am not proud to be a part of something that is so compromising and ill-informed,” she admitted. “However, I (like many others) was not aware of the entire story line or Mr. Khalil Ur Rehman’s ideology at the time this project was shot – which was a year ago. My role in this project is limited so I did not get a chance to see how it’ll come together or how it’ll eventually unroll on television and that is where I think I slipped a little. It was my first ever telecom project and I am learning – I have learnt to be cautious and more conscious with my creative choices.”

Rehmat could have chosen to stay quiet on the matter, like a lot of other actors associated with the project but she decided not to. Bold decision
