A 2019 Pakistani crime-drama television series created and produced by Fahad Mustafa and Dr. Ali Kazmi under their production house Big Bang Entertainment.
It features Saba Qamar, Bilal Abbas Khan, Azekah Daniel, Maira Khan, Emmad Irfani and Aijaz Aslam.
‘Cheekh‘ fans, who were already concerned about Maira Khan’s character Shehwar’s future, learnt a shocking fact about her past.
Shehwar (played by Maira Khan), who is already going through a lot of hardships due to her husband Yawar’s patronising attitude and patriarchal mindset.
The ARY Digital play’s 15th episode shows that Shehwar visits a doctor to seek medical treatment of her “infertility” problem only to be insulted in front of servants and then asked to wear her medical report like a badge so that she never forgets that she can’t become a mother.
The reality, however, is different as the audiences were showed that it was Yawar (played by Aijaz Aslam), who in reality is infertile and that his infertility is incurable.
But Yawar being Yawar, did something more sinister that audiences ever thought, as he asks doctor to prepare fake reports showing Shehwar as incurably infertile.
Not only that, just to feed his fragile ego, the man is shown telling Maira Khan that he will never demand a child from her and will never press her to seek a cure for “her infertility”.
