Ushna Shah, known for her bold and candid attitude, recently shared personal insights on Maliha Rehman’s channel, shedding light on her beliefs, life, and career. The accomplished actress, famed for her roles in dramas like Alif and Balaa, also discussed her views on the portrayal of divorce in Pakistani dramas.
Expressing her stance, Ushna emphasized that the narrative of “saving one’s home” or avoiding divorce is overly emphasized in dramas. Drawing from her own experiences, she mentioned being married herself and praying for a lasting marriage. However, she stressed that a woman’s worth should not solely be tied to marital status, challenging the prevailing notion in dramas.
Ushna revealed her mother’s inspiring journey as a divorced woman who, despite facing challenges, worked three jobs to provide for her and her sisters. She highlighted the strength and resilience of divorced women, urging for a more nuanced portrayal in the media. According to Ushna, while marriages are significant, they should not define a woman’s identity.
