After striking gold with the Ramazan special play, Suno Chanda, and its sequel, Hum TV had planned to launch another Ramazan play this year. However, due to the country-wide lockdown, the shooting of the project could not be finished and the drama didn’t go on-air as was initially planned. But now the shooting for the drama is back on again and this time with a new addition to the cast.
Ayeza Khan has been confirmed to be part of an upcoming lighthearted drama. Titled Chupke Chupke, the drama is written by the Suno Chanda fame writer Saima Akram Chaudhry and directed by Danish Nawaz.
Osman posted a picture with Ayeza from the sets on his Instagram and captioned it “Reunited”. Ayeza commented on Osman’s post with a finger-on-the-lips emoji. This interaction had the fans guessing what these two have been reunited for. Ayeza and Osman have previously worked together in Hum TV’s 2013 Ramazan special drama, Galti Se Mistake Ho Gayi.
Our sources have confirmed that Ayeza has been cast opposite Osman Khalid Butt in the drama.
Chupke Chupke also features Mira Sethi, Asma Abbas, Ali Safina, and newcomer Aymen Saleem in pivotal roles. Digital sensation Arsalan Naseer of the Comics By Arsalan (CBA) fame is making his television debut with the show.
Arsalan had spilled some interesting beans about the project in an interview where he mentioned that the drama is a “tale of two families who are not only neighbors but are also related. The grandmothers of the two families have a never-ending beef but their grandchildren think otherwise. It is a love-hate relationship of one big family that is filled with occasional jealousy, friendship, romance, and lots of laughter.”
Mira Sethi plays Osman Khalid Butt’s sister in the drama. Mira had revealed in a podcast that the drama is primarily centered around the character played by Osman Khalid Butt, but every character has their own track in the drama.
As originally planned the drama is a Ramazan special and will air next year on Hum TV throughout the month of Ramazan. It will be a lighthearted drama, just like Hum TV’s usual Ramazan special affairs, but it would not be an out and out comedy. Judging by the genre of Saima Akram’s previous Ramazan special drama Suno Chanda, that told the story of a joint family in a light hearted manner by blending the elements of drama and comedy, it would not be wrong to assume that Chupke Chupke will have similar energy.
