The end of vicious MILs! Twitterati lauds ‘Kuch Ankahi’ for subtly smashing stereotypes


Nadeem Baig’s Kuch Ankahi continues to break stereotypes in the most subtle ways with each episode and fans are here for it! Pakistani dramas are known to show some of the most “vicious mothers-in-law” but not anymore

The family drama did the opposite with actor Annie Zaidi (Almas) shutting up a nosy relative body-shaming Qudsia Ali (Tanya)

A user shared a clip of Annie (Salman’s mother) respectfully giving a shut-up call to a woman commenting on Qudsia’s weight and how she would get “better grooms” if she lost some weight

To which, Annie says that God makes pairs and Tanya would get the best she deserves the way she is

Salman’s mother proving yet again why she’s gonna be the absolute best MIL in future🥺 Aaliya’s one lucky girl! Just how politely she shut down the audacity of that relative who oh so casually was body shaming the girl whose house that relative is a guest of🙄#KuchAnkahi pic

” Salman's mother is so non-judgemental and positive

The way she so simply brushed off that woman's comment about Taniya's weight by saying "ALLAH ne sbk joray bnaye hein

Jisne krni hogi isi haal mein krlega"

This scene was so comforting to watch 🫶🏻#KuchAnkahi pic

“It’s the way Kuch Ankahi tells you what is right and what is wrong without throwing it in your face

Salman's mom telling off the lady who body-shamed Tanya is the best example of it

We don't need 100 pages long speeches, just one little dialogue blended-in well is enough

” A tweep loved Annie’s hyping-the-woman attitude

“I love Salman’s mother she’s like a fresh breeze in the age of aunties who love to make others feel low, especially young girls

” Sharing another clip from the same episode, a user related to how women are pitted for their skin colour and weight all the time and such conversations are the most vulnerable ones with your parents

Ugh! It’s subtle moments like these that makes #KuchAnkahi one of the most heartwarming serials out there✋🏼 Haven’t we, the daughters, all had one or the other versions of such conversations with our mothers/relatives? Somehow, we never have the correct weight or complexion… pic

However, yesterday’s episode had more than one scene that had fans in awe

Users also wrote about Agha Jaan (Muhammad Ahmed) and his elder daughter Samiya (Mira Sethi’s) heart-warming conversation

“Kuch Ankahi winning my heart again! Agha Jaan explains his POV without putting down his wife in front of his children

He knows she's wrong but it is how he explains her errors in judgment to Samiya - so touching, poignant and free from toxicity,” read a tweet
