Mehreen Pirzada responds to criticism about adult content in her latest Web Series Sultan of Delhi, streaming on Disney Plus Hot Star. Mehreen Pirzada, an actress and model who recently appeared in ‘Sultan of Delhi,’ has taken issue with the mainstream media and social media trolls’ description of marital rape as a “sex scene.”
The actress who plays the character of Sanjana in the web series wrote on X (formerly known as Twitter) that “there was a scene in Sultan of Delhi that depicted a brutal marital rape. It pains me to see that a serious issue like marital rape has been described by many in the media as a “sex scene.” This trivializes something that is a serious issue that many women the world over are currently dealing with.”
“It disturbs me that a certain section of the media and people on social media have picked up on this; these people should understand that they have sisters and daughters too, and I pray to God they never have to go through such trauma in their own lives, as just the thought of such brutality and violence against women is repugnant,” she said.
She concluded the post by writing that “as an actor, it’s my job to do justice to the role, and the team at Sultan of Delhi, helmed by Milan Luthria Sir, was extremely professional in making sure that we as actors were at no point uncomfortable or exposed during the shooting of some very difficult scenes. I hope as an artist to do my best in every role for my audience, be it Mahalakshmi, Sanjana, or Honey.”
Her post has received widespread praise from social media users, with many expressing support for her views and applauding her performance in the web series. Overall, the response of Mehreen Pirzada’s response to criticism about adult content in Sultan of Delhi web series has been appreciated by one and all.
