A lot people complain about why certain dramas don’t air in bigger channels like Hum TV or ARY. The answer lies in the kind of audiences those channels cater to. Dramas like Talkhiyan, Pehchan, Mere Humdum Mere Dost, Aunn Zara and now Jackson Heights won’t run on Hum TV or ARY because these two channels cater to the “saas bahu” audiences.. they hardly take any risks with dramas like the ones I mentioned. Thank God for channels like APlus, Urdu1 and Express that believe in stories that don’t just have mazloom and hysterical women. What’s sad is that Hum TV is run by women yet it airs dramas that have women being treated like property (ie; Mohabbat Subh Ka Sitara). Not saying that these bigger channels haven’t taken any risks, good dramas like Pyare Afzal, Ullu Baraye Farokht Nahin, Bunty I Love You have come out of them but once in a blue moon. At the end of the day, channels don’t matter, good work will be noticed anywhere.
