Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) has issued advice to Geo Entertainment’s drama serial Fitrat for airing inappropriate content.

The advisory notification shared on PEMRA’s official Twitter handle reads, “PEMRA issues advice on Geo Entertainment’s drama serial Fitrat for airing inappropriate dialogues/content. The channel is advised reasonable ‘editing’ of the drama, in addition to aligning the content according to PEMRA’s Code of Conduct.”

Directed by Asad Jabal, Geo Entertainment’s Fitrat stars Saboor Aly, Ali Abbas, Mirza Zain Baig, and Zubab Rana in the lead roles.

The drama follows the story of Saboor Aly playing Faria, a self-centered and materialistic young woman, who goes to any length for her benefit. She marries the younger brother of her ex-husband Shahbaz (Ali Abbas) and then wrongfully accuses the latter of harassment. Faria’s allegation damages the relationship between the two brothers.

However, PEMRA hasn’t mentioned any particular episode nor has specified any dialogue or scene.

The regulatory body earlier had raised similar concerns about ARY Digital’s drama series Jalan.
