Ahad Raza Mir and Sajal Aly's are pairing up for another upcoming drama serial. Titled, Yeh Dil Mera, is all set to air soon on Hum TV. The reel life and real life couple has worked in two other dramas previously. Their sizzling chemistry was seen onscreen in Yakeen Ka Safar and Aangan. Ahad and Sajal's romance rumours erupted when the couple bagged several accolades for their first show, Yakeen Ka Safar. Since then, the audience has been waiting for them to get back together onscreen. Looks like, the wish has been fulfilled.

Well, almost.

From far, Yeh Dil Mera looks like a quintessential lovestory. A cute meet between the protagonists of the show and their eventual romance. But once the teaser - or teasers - begin, a whole new world has been shown in them. Ahad and Sajal coming together for the first time onscreen since their engagement was huge, and naturally there were reactions to the show. However, many have slammed Ye Dil Mera on Twitter, calling out the makers to promote workplace harassment.

And we don't really blame them.

The teaser shows Sajal, who is shown quite career oriented, landing an interview for her dream job. However, when she goes for the same interview - dressed as if she is on her way to a mehendi probably - she meets Ahad, who blatantly flirts with her rather than asking her relevant questions.

The teasers have sparked a debate whether the makers of the show understand the nature of harassment they are promoting and romanticising. Taking to Twitter, many even compared the show to the infamous E L James trilogy, Fifty Shades of Grey.

Here's what they have to say:

Many thought they were promoting workplace harassment. 

Others shared it looked like a poorly executed Fifty Shades of Grey

Albeit the criticism, fans are still extremely excited to see their favourite couple back onscreen.
