Ayeza Khan on her character ‘Mehwish’ in ‘Meray Paas Tum Ho’


Renowned actor Ayeza Khan opened up about her character in hit drama Meray Paas Tum Ho.

The actress took to Instagram and penned down a note explaining why taking up Mehwish’s character was challenging. She said no other actor might have taken this role because the heroine was shown in a negative light.

Ayeza’s fame peaked following this role whom she believes may have changed the idea of a ‘heroine.’

“Mehwish was a character probably no one wanted to do, maybe because of the preconceived notion that  a ‘heroine’ can never be bad. She can’t be someone people hate. A heroine will always be innocent, will cry, scream, suffer and be helpless, be forgiving and she will do anything but betray her hero,” she wrote.

Because it is assumed a heroine can’t be a woman who tells other women that there’s no betrayal in true love and where there is betrayal, there is no love, she added.

Ayeza Khan further said “Even if a woman betrays her husband, the children suffer. The husband remains who he is after marriage but fails to become to father.”

“The purpose of essaying Mehwish’s role was not just to show how a woman suffers when her husband betrays her but I think MPTH is the story of a mother,” she wrote.

Ayeza Khan went onto say that Meray Paas Tum Ho will always remain that story for her which gives a message that if parents hurt their children, they will never be happy.

Parents are a mirror for their children. They will do what they learn from  their parents be it love, torture or betrayal, she concluded.

The starlet had earlier said while interacting with media on Sunday that she believes people always loved Mehwish and she didn’t receive flak for playing a negative role but was praised for her performance.

In ARY Digital’s popular drama, Mehwish cheats on her husband, Danish (Humayun Saeed) to be with Shehwar (Adnan Siddiqui). This led to her husband divorcing her.

The finale was aired on Saturday and became talk of the town for its tragic ending.
