Actor Saheefa Jabbar took to her Instagram stories to announce that she hasn’t quit acting, she has just taken a break because of lack of good scripts and progressive roles for women.

The Beti diva questioned that why do our women in drama remain oppressed despite there being diverse women in society.

“There are no good scripts out there. The scripts which are being offered to me at the moment are not up to the standards of storytelling I feel comfortable endorsing,” she said. “I am writing this today because a few rumours have made their way back to me and it does not feel nice to hear untrue things about yourself.”


Her posts raised important issues regarding portrayal of women in Pakistani dramas.

The Bhool star was last seen opposite Faysal Qureshi and Aijaz Aslam in Log Kya Kahenge.
