Sonya Hussyn addresses honour killing in her latest song ‘Ki Jana’

Dynamic actress Sonya Hussyn flaunts incredible acting skills through her performance in ‘Ki Jana’ by Shani Arshad, a music video directed by Nabeel Qureshi.

The video has been praised by seniors of the entertainment industry including the superstar and producer Humayun Saeed.

Hussyn’s authentic talent for performance arts spoke volumes in a video which consisted of only 5 minutes.

Credited for using her acting to highlight various societal issues, the brilliant actress picks on yet another subject matter been prevalent in Pakistani society for too long – Honour Killing locally known as karo-kari.

Unfortunately, Pakistan to date has the highest number of documented and estimated honour killings per capita of any country in the world. Despite recent legal reforms, this vice remains a common practice in the country today.

Hussyn’s music video displays, the emotional turmoil that goes into honour killings. It is a representation of how our society believes it is justified to kill individuals based on subjective interpretations of bringing dishonour upon the family or community.

For this particular video, love seems to be the source of the dishonour. We see this in the very first scene where a couple is driving off while male members of the community continue relentlessly shooting at the couple.

As the car is driven off, the man (played by Mohsin Abbas Haider) is shot while the woman (played by Sonya Hussyn) remains alive and watches her lover die before her very own eyes. Hussyn’s portrayal of this character exudes the genuine emotion which goes into losing a loved one and the aftermath of being in that headspace.

The character displays her need for vengeance by picking up a gun and shooting her rivals with tremendous passion.

Throughout the track, we can see Sonya’s performance and experience her pain vicariously.

The passion-fuelled music video really exemplifies how this actress is truly on the front lines of her field while displaying grace and beauty effortlessly.
