5 Upcoming Projects On Our Watchlist – Which One Are Your Rooting For?
Entertainment takes centre stage in our lives today (especially as we spend more time indoors due to living in a Covid-hit world)! We access it through books, media, music etc. As digital media catches on in households across the globe, people often opt for entertainment onscreen and binge-watch or catch a short film.
Here we give you the list of 5 upcoming projects that are on our watchlist.
1) The Dur-e-Fishan and Danish Taimoor Starrer drama – Ishq e Junoon
The emerging star Dur-Fishan Saleem is set to star with Danish Taimoor in a drama named “Ishq-E-Junoon”. The drama is written by Radain Shah who is also the writer of famous dramas like Khudparast, and recently Shehnai, currently on air Aakhir Kab Tak that is captivating audiences. Ishq e Junoon is directed by Ahmed Bhatti of Kaisa Hai Naseeban, Qurban & others.
The drama will be produced by iDream Entertainment who recently aired Pehli Si Mohabbat and will be screening popular talent from our industry, namely Nauman Ejaz, Shahood Alvi and Atiqa Odho. The drama is anticipated to be aired on Ary Digital at the end of November. As narrated by Dur-e-Fishan herself, the drama is a tragic love story.
2) “NEHAR”- The upcoming drama of Areeba Habib;
The “Jalan” star is geared up to star alongside Saboor Aly, whom we saw in Mujhe Vida Ker recently, in her upcoming drama Nehar, written by Soofia Khurram. The drama will also include Osama Tahir and Syed Shafaat Ali. “Nehar” will be aired on Hum TV and is directed by the Yeh Dil Mera director Aehsun Talish. The drama is said to be highlighting the issue of Dowry in our society. Areeba told herself that it will be about two sisters but won’t have the sister rivalry in it. As stated by the star herself, Saboor Aly will be playing her sister in the drama.
3) The Resham leading film “Dafaa Hojao Tum”
The ever-young Resham will be seen in an upcoming short film named Dafaa Hojao Tum, written by the famous writer Faseeh Bari Khan who is known for his dramas like Quddusi Sahab ki Bewa and Ghissi Pitti Mohabbat. This film will air on Youtube and is the directorial debut of the writer himself. Abdullah Ejaz will be seen alongside Resham in the short film. The writer cum director has been sharing pictures from the shooting and needless to say, both the stars look good together and story seems interesting.
4) Humaima Malick and Mikaal Zulfiqar starrer shortfilm- “Half Cooked”
The “Qaraar” star Mikaal Zulfiqar will be spotted by the side of Humaima Malick from Bol, Dekh Magar Pyar se and others, in an approaching short film named Half Cooked. The short film represents the story of a up-to-date couple. It is directed by Shahrukh Naveed and will be aired on YouTube by the end of this month. Both the stars have been sharing their pictures from the project on social media and we must say Mikaal and Humaima look amazing together, here is what Humaima posted about Half Cooked.
5. Dobara is on top of the list with Hadiqa Kiani & Bilal Abbas Khan
An Older Woman Falling For A Younger Man?
This is the storyline (or seems to be from the teasers released so far). What is interesting is the formula of a widowed mother with a son nearly as old as the man she’s falling for. What’s even more interesting is that the main leads are none other than Bilal Abbas Khan & Hadiqa Kiani – the two sharing the screen together should create quite a stir!
Hadiqa has earned fan love and respect as Sakina in Raqeeb Se and Bilal Abbas Khan is no stranger to adding another out of the box role to his long line of very diverse performances! Not to forget Usama Khan will be a part of the project. We recently saw him in Ishq Jalebi and he is developing quite a following as a young & upcoming talent!
