Earlier this week, the hit Pakistani series ‘Churails’ was taken off from digital giant, ZEE5 due to objections made against its content.
‘Churails’ had been streaming globally, including Pakistan since 11th August 2020. Despite the very positive reviews, ‘Churails’ has had its fair share of negativity from Pakistani viewers for its controversial use of language and gestures.
A ZEE5 spokesperson said, “Our aim has always been to create content that resonates strongly with viewers across the globe. Churails has been a phenomenal success story for us and has been lauded and loved the world over. The show was taken off the platform in Pakistan purely in compliance with a directive that we received. We have now addressed the matter and reinstated the show on our platform. We have yesterday also launched the trailer of our next Zindagi Original ‘Ek Jhoothi Love Story’, which we hope will go on to be hugely loved by our audiences.”
Writer and Director of ‘Churails’, Asim Abbasi expressed his disappointment at the decision of the show going offline in Pakistan.
