The entertainment industry’s foray into the digital space has begun well. With Enaya already released on Eros Now, and a lot of other projects under works – including one that may even pair up Hamza Ali Abbasi with Hollywood actor Emily Blunt, web content is becoming a new trend in the entertainment industry.
The latest to this trend is another web series in the making with Feroze Khan and Sohai Ali Abro under consideration as the leads.
From the Makers of Enaaya
Titled Ruswaee, the web series is a collaborative project of Samina Humayun Saeed and Sana Shahnawaz with IMGC (also the producer of Enaaya). The Chairman of IMGC, Sheikh Amjad Rasheed, announced about the plans for the web series in a press conference in Karachi.
Written by Asma Nabeel and directed by Shahid Shafaat, the web series is still in the pre-production stage and is planned to go on the floor in March this year. Although there has been no mention about the genre of it, it was confirmed that the series would be available for viewing exclusively on Eros Now.
Rasheed also informed the media present that IMGC also plans to launch its own digital platform on the lines of Netflix.
Considered But Not Confirmed
While there have been reports from the media that claim Feroze and Sohai were the confirmed leads of Ruswaee, the producer Samina Humayun has something else to say. In a quote to Something Haute, Samina shot down all such reports.
She said that although it was true that they were considering Feroze and Sohai as the leads, none of the cast has been finalized yet. An official announcement about the casting of the web series will be made soon from their end.
With strong names backing the project, this yet-to-be-made web series has already garnered interest. It now remains to be seen which actors get to headline this new offering on the digital space.
