Ever since the pictures of his shoot, which was shot for Hello Pakistan, were released, Sheheryar Munawar and Sajal Aly became the talk of the town. Most of the headlines were critical and called the shoot “sizzling” and “bold.” Others took to Twitter to talk about how Munawar had a penchant for choosing to do intimate shoots with recently divorced ladies, referring to his previous shoot with Syra Yousuf. Other people raised an issue with him smoking or posing with alcohol.

 

The actor cum director, was unfazed with the criticism and while sharing more shots from the photoshoot, he made one simple clarification and wrote, “Please keep in mind we’re actors playing characters – enjoy them for what they are -Art.” He went on to explain the concept behind the photoshoot, “The concept behind the shoot was to follow the story of a self-indulgent, narcissistic and emotionally unavailable artist and his muse. To show the repercussions of being in an emotionally abusive relationship. Inspired by true life events (the courtship and later marriages of Arthur miller and Marilyn Monroe, and Kamal Amrohi and Meena Kumari) .”

He shared that the fashion film is titled “The Anatomy Of Melancholy” and also went on to explain what it all meant, “In the fashion film from the shoot that I realised earlier, the man’s character shoots someone at the end – this is a metaphor for the abuser killing the abused metaphorically in a toxic relationship with emotional abuse.”
