RIP Haseena Moin. No one quite got the young, urban woman’s aspirations as you did. Shehzori. Ankahi. Tanhayian. Dhoop Kinarey: stories about independent, complex and unorthodox female characters for whom romance was the side plot – the real story was their coming of age. pic.twitter.com/6R8FZbAA1Y
