It goes without saying that our drama industry is at its very best, but that sure doesn’t mean it’s perfect. Noticing over and over again how class differences are established in dramas, a Twitter user shared his opinion:
How Humtv establishes class difference in their dramas.
1) Abu mein apkay liye chai bana kar laati houn.
2) Daddy mein apko zabardast si coffee pilati houn.
3) Zarina, sahab kay liye Green Tea lay kay ayoo.

And netizens have lots to add to the list:
Hum TV Drama’s

Rich’s Breakfast: Orange Juice and Fruit Basket on Table

Every other woman in hum tv dramas: Main abhi apke liye chai le k ati hoon all the time.

People were also sharing how other channels were no better:
ARY is 10 times worse. I don't think thst Hum TV is any better, but ARY really hammers this concept down https://t.co/CxjlCf9NnN

People were fully on-board:
Lmaooo i remember watching Daam (great drama imo), where class difference was established by food so often. They were always having sandwiches and “manchurian” at the rich ppl house. The show also had excellent sets when it came to showing class differences imo https://t.co/zu8QVtPKUz
