Ahad Raza Mir and Sajal Aly fans who have been impatiently waiting for their now show are in for a treat. Or are they? High expectations surrounded the trailer of Yeh Dil Mera as it marked the comeback of a power couple and their undeniable chemistry, but some tropes in the clip have left people feeling confuzzled, to say the least.

It gives us a glimpse of Aly, naive and super excited for her job interview, meeting her future employer which happens to be Mir’s character. In any other era, this meet-cute would have been considered utterly romantic, but Mir’s character’s unwarranted questions for his potential employee have raised some eyebrows.

In simpler terms, people feel this particular clip romanticises and glorifies workplace harassment, especially in times when the audience is direly looking for intelligent content. And speaking of hot takes, people feel their meeting is highly reminiscent of a scene in the popular controversial film, Fifty Shades of Grey.

For those who haven’t seen the movie, don’t fret, as there’s no need to. Let’s just say the lead characters have a similar meeting where the male lead appears overbearing which puts the female lead off at first but she simultaneously finds it attractive. Having said that, it has been established that the kind of behaviour between potential employees if a definite no-no.

Coming back to Yeh Dil Mera, you have to check out some of these reactions to know what we’re on about.



Many felt it normalises harassment faced by girls in workplaces, which isn’t romantic by any means.

Nope, even a guy like Mir does not get a pass.

Interestingly, a lot of people brought up how Aly’s attire was completely inappropriate for a corporate job.


Well, that gives us a lot to ponder over. Nevertheless, we’re still keeping our hopes up for the show and are itching to see what turns the story will take. Meanwhile, check out the teaser!
