Gone are the days when television shows depicted women as damsels in distress, waiting to be rescued by their prince charming. Actresses have taken center stage in shows and have become the voice for equality and empowerment. In Ishq Subhan Allah, Zara Siddiqui’s (played Eisha Singh) character is a daring one, that takes a stand against triple talaq.
Watch her performance in an episode from the show here.
In Aapke Aa Jaane Se, we see Vedika living life on her own terms, not caring a damn about people’s opinion. It’s inspiring to see actresses playing such liberating characters on the small screen. Aside from television shows, ZEE TV also makes it a point to promote equality through social media, as evident from the platform’s Instagram account.
Check out this post where Ishq Subhan Allah’s Zara is seen talking about what freedom means to her.
Aaj Likhenge Kal’s Puchki (played by Vrushika Mehta), states that freedom for her is independence from her past and breaking free from judgement by society.
Similar sentiments are echoed by Aaj Likhenge Kal’s Vedika, played by actress Suhasi Dhami.
While Bollywood films are seeing an evolution in terms of the powerful characters that are being written for women, it’s satisfying to see that television is following suit.
