With what seemed an otherwise promising episode of Hum Kahan Ke Sachay Thay, one scene in particular has the netizens feeling a little unsettling.

To reach her university in time, Mehreen climbs on top of a public bus, and while others loved the scene for the parallel that it drew between her luxurious lifestyle back in the day to her current life. Some people had a problem:
12 saal buses me safar kia hai aj tak kisi larki ko "Majboori" me bus ki chat pe charhtay nahe dekha. Itnay bhi beghairat nahe hue hain abhi ham pic.twitter.com/kOXQ6KdHvc

It was a parallel between her luxurious life as a child and her struggle as an adult. Ghairat kahan se aa gayi? Genuinely confused. https://t.co/TCv3srpz0h

This scene wasn't done to show begairiti, it was more like her recalling when she use to travel in her father's car. It was to show how she still remembers these small things. Also? What's Beghairiti in sitting on top of bus? https://t.co/KPxP8Uka1K

People were not amused!
Yar kasam se sab se chuss scene tha yeh. I have seen people left their seats for women so that they can sit. Lekin hmari society main aisa kabhi nai hua k chat pe bth jae.

People were calling it unrealistic:
Lol, I do agree that this scene was totally unrealistic. Ajj tak maine kisi larki ko bus ki chat per naho dekha, conductors larko ko utarwa k upae charha dete hain agar larki ki jagah na ban rahi ho 🤦♀️
This scene was just to appease burgers

She literally asked to borrow money for her inhaler in the next scene showing how broke she was:
Seat na milnay pay rickshaw me jaya ja sakta tha lekin nai bus ki chat pay bitha k aurat ki "suffering" dikhani thi https://t.co/ZkCpxvlgZr

Aaj tak actresses ko jo kuch draamon aur movies me kerte dekha he vo sab asal life me Pakistani larkiyo ko kerte dekha he?
This is just dramatization, its not real.
Her cheez me gherat/begherti q aa jati he is qom k aadmiyon me?
