In a BBC interview with Haroon Rashid, Pakistani actress Durefishan Saleem talked about how our society is obsessed with toxic heroes who save the girl in the end —and how girls end up falling in love with these toxic men.

I don’t think Durefishan Saleem would choose to watch dramas like Kesi Teri Khudgharzi, the host asked. So why you think the dramas like KTK do so well?

While responding to this question, Durefishan said, 

“Durefishan would not watch a genre like this. Or would even like to work in something like this again. But Durefishan belongs to the kind of society where people really like any woman being saved from any toxic area around her. Our audience are just focused about a girl needs to be saved by a boy and no matter how that boy saves you. It’s more to how we raise a women in our culture. We just tell them that, you know your brother, your husband, your father is supposed to be around you. So I feel like when I was reading the script Durefishan would not have acted the way Mehak did in KTK because Mehak is a Pakistani girl who has no experience of boys who is never told that you are good for yourself.”

Pertinent to note that Kesi Teri Khudgharzi was the super hit project of Durefishan Saleem in which she played the role of Mehak, a spineless and submissive middle class girl who ended up falling in love with her abductor. The drama's hero was at his most toxic when, driven by his obsession, went through all extremes to marry Mehak in spite of all the odds.
