Web series are the new thing in town. With platforms like Iflix and Eros on the rise among Pakistani audience, it looks like we will be having more web series in the near future.
News has it that Mehreen Jabbar has geared up for a new venture for the digital space. She has joined hands with the novelist, Umera Ahmad, for a web series. Galaxy Lollywood recently found out that Bilal Abbas Khan has been cast as the lead and here is everything you need to know about the series, in Bilal’s own words:
Bilal’s take on the web series
Bilal could not spill many beans about his role, but he told us that he would be playing a normal young Karachi boy. He also added that the cast includes names like Madiha Imam, Mohammad Ahmed, Beo Zafar, Furqan Siddique, Mariam Saleem, and Kiran Haq.
He also disclosed that the shooting started in February and the series is currently under production. However, no release date is decided, as of yet.
Bilal Abbas Khan has lately proved to be a heartthrob for the nation, through and through. After his phenomenal acting in O Rangreza and Balaa, his latest project Cheekh has been equally praised by his fans all over the world. His negative role in the same sets him apart as an actor possessing an exceptional amount of talent, that he has also managed to show in his limited time, on screen.
On one hand, we have the ace filmmaker Mehreen Jabbar who is known for her unique choice in stories. Some of her exceptionally praised work includes drama serials Daam and Mata e Jaan Hai Tu, and films such as Raamchand Pakistani and Dobara Phir Se.
On the other hand, we have Umera Ahmad who has been in the limelight for some of her beautifully written novels (other than the many problematic ones) that have also been adapted as drama serials. Some of her best works include Meri Zaat Zara e Benishan and Zindagi Gulzar Hai.
With the uproar that Enaaya – another recent web series by Wajahat Rauf – has caused recently, we wonder will Bilal-Mehreen-Umera trio be able to create an extraordinary stir? Guess we’ll just have to wait and watch.
