Pakistani Drama Actress Ayesha Omar in a Podcast Interview revealed that she was in an abusive relationship for eight years and was almost married to that person as well.
I don’t want to talk about the relationship in detail because it took me so long to leave the person, as I always thought he would eventually change and become better or that I could fix him,” shared the actor.
“Even after eight years of going back and forth, the relationship was full of physical abuse and so much verbal abuse, so I left,” continued the Actress. “He was so fond of swearing and even told me he cursed at me to show me affection. I mean, I use profanity too while sitting amongst friends, but not for publicly demeaning someone.”
Omar then disclosed that she is still in contact with this partner. “I have a cordial relationship with him and consider him family as well. I hope he has resolved his issues, as I understand that every supposedly ‘crazy’ behavior has mental and childhood trauma behind it.
Some people just release that trauma in an abusive or physical manner, rather than dealing with it,” she said, adding that it’s also so common to see abuse on television. “It’s okay to slap a woman, even if the hand is touching her, but a kiss is forbidden to show?” Omar remarked.
Before concluding the talk, Omar also revealed that she has four films slated to premiere this year; Money Back Guarantee, Huey Tum Ajnabi, Dhai Chaal, and Javed Iqbal: The Untold Story of A Serial Killer which is now titled Kukri.
“Four films are releasing; I don’t know how this has happened, but all the projects I was shooting for the past five years are now premiering all at once,” she happily stated!
“Javed Iqbal, which was banned for a year, is finally coming to the big screen,” she continued. “Dhai Chaal is shot in Quetta. It’s based on a true story in Balochistan. The film will also have an Indian spy and I will play a journalist who is the female lead. I can’t reveal more details as it will disclose the plot, we’re keeping it a bit hush-hush right now.”
In the end, Omar mentioned Money Back Guarantee and how the film is more than just an entertaining flick. “It is hilarious but not meaningless. It’s actually political satire and resonates with the current situation in Pakistan so aptly,” she concluded.
