I wanted to thank you all for the love you have given “Mere Pass Tum Ho”. I understand the dialogues had some problematic leanings, and sometimes went a little far, sometimes quite far in painting women with a single brush stroke - I understand and take all of that on board. I wish the drama had consciously added nuance to the storyline. Regardless, I wanted to thank you for your love, your loyalty, your eyeballs 😋 - glued to the screen every week. There is nothing greater for an artist than for his art and craft to be appreciated. We will strive to improve our storylines, and in my own production company Cereal Entertainment I am giving women writers the chance and space to create good content. In the meantime, thank you, and see you soon.🙏
