About the Show

In this episode, Chief Explorer Rajan Nazran and Global Indian Ambassador Rajesh Gopie travel to Pakistan to meet Hajra Khan, a leading Pakistani actress and writer. 

She opens up about the entertainment industry’s dark side in a 2-part episode- from nepotism to the casting couch culture that has been the cause of hidden abuse for decades.

As they continue the conversation, she shares her life’s journey from an Afghan-Pakistan border village to becoming a leading actress and writer. Through her firsthand experiences in the entertainment industry, she exposes the unsettling darkness that can permeate even the glitziest professions. Furthermore, Hajra enlightens us about the detrimental impact of modern media platforms such as TikTok and Insta-reels, which often overshadow and diminish the true artistry of acting. 

Among the myriad of issues bravely addressed by Hajra Khan, she also sheds light on the ever-changing dynamics of the industry. She elucidates how a patriarchal society, driven by power dynamics, discrimination, and the systemic abuse of women, has shaped the very fabric of this field. These topics serve as a pitiable reminder that there are deeply ingrained problems that the media often shy away from.

Join along as they dive into a world the media tries to avoid.
