“To know that something I have been a part of is being used to hurt and trigger a survivor is something I cannot stand for. When I was asked to do the role of Taskeen for Hadsa, my first question was ‘Is this related to the motorway incident?’ ‘Is this based off of a true incident?’ I made it very clear that I would not be a part of a project it is based on anyone’s story. The team behind the project explicitly told me ‘No’. After many conversations with the team and only after reading the script. I understood that ‘Hadsa’ was not related to or based off of the 2020 motorway incident.”

“Unfortunately, the horrific act of rape and violence happens far too often in our society to men, women and children of all social classes and all religions. Often it happens on the road, in obstructed areas and too often the family members are forced to witness the terror. These are the realities of the world we live in. I have sadly been exposed to many stories like this one, but I can say that Hadsa is not based on any one person’s story. It is based on a sickly common part of our reality.”
