Every episode of Nadeem Baig’s Kuch Ankahi subtly challenges stereotypes, and the audience loves it! However, no longer do Pakistani dramas depict some of the most “vicious mothers-in-law.” The family drama backfired when Qudsia Ali’s (Tanya) body was shamed by a nosy relative, played by Annie Zaidi (Almas).
A user posted a video of Qudsia’s mother Annie politely telling a woman to stop talking about her weight and how she would get “better grooms” if she did so. To which Annie responds that Tanya would receive the best treatment due to the way she is, since God creates pairs.
Salman’s mother proving yet again why she’s gonna be the absolute best MIL in future🥺
Aaliya’s one lucky girl!

“Salman’s mother proving yet again why she’s gonna be the absolute best MIL in future. Aaliya is one lucky girl!” wrote the user. “Just how politely she shut down the audacity of that relative who oh-so-casually was body shaming the girl, whose house that relative is a guest of.”
Salman's mother is so non-judgemental and positive. The way she so simply brushed off that woman's comment about Taniya's weight by saying "ALLAH ne sbk joray bnaye hein. Jisne krni hogi isi haal mein krlega". This scene was so comforting to watch 🏻#KuchAnkahi pic.twitter.com/x17PeJQ6D0

Just like so, Twitter was all praises for Kuch Ankahi’s latest episode. Fans lauded the writer and director’s intelligence.
Sharing another clip from the same episode, a user related to how women are pitted for their skin colour and weight all the time. Such conversations are the most vulnerable ones with your parents.
It’s subtle moments like these that makes #KuchAnkahi one of the most heartwarming serials out there✋🏼
Haven’t we, the daughters, all had one or the other versions of such conversations with our mothers/relatives?
Somehow, we never have the correct weight or complexion… pic.twitter.com/WWCz91yMrP

However, yesterday’s episode had more than one scene that had fans in awe. Users also wrote about Agha Jaan (Muhammad Ahmed) and his elder daughter Samiya (Mira Sethi’s) heart-warming conversation.
#KuchAnkahi winning my heart again! Agha Jaan explains his POV w/out putting down his wife infront of his children. He knows she's wrong but how he explains her errors in judgement to Samiya – so touching, poignant & free from toxicity. Thank you #MohammadAhmed @KashfFoundation pic.twitter.com/f091XE0Cpm

Netizens appreciated that Agha Jaan gave Samiya the space to make her own decision whilst advising her on what her options are and guaranteeing that they’re behind her.
Last but not least, the burgeoning romance between Sajal Aly and Bilal Abbas Khan has fans in a “chokehold.”
