It is a good change of pace when themes beyond love affairs and familial disputes are explored on local television. The recent past has seen the addition of some unique narratives and progressive, female characters on small screen but they have been very few. However the list continues to expand as more and more producers attempt to add variety to television. The most recent example in this case is Ehteshamuddin’s upcoming period drama, Aangan that has an Indo-Pak backdrop and centers around the pre and post partition era.
The drama that recently entered its production phase features Udaari star Ahsan Khan and Mawra Hocane in lead roles. It is based on a popular novel of the same by Khadija Mastoor.
“It is a story about a family living in the ‘40s but the story is set up in such a way that it will be relatable for the audience,” Ahsan Khan, who plays one of the chief protagonists in the play, told Instep.
This isn’t the first time Khan will be working with director Ehteshamuddin as he also directed Khan’s super hit social play, Udaari last year.Aside from Khan and Hocane, Aangan will also feature Ahad Raza Mir and Sajal Aly in prominent roles, according to our sources.
Coming back to Khan, the actor is all set to appear in two big screen projects in the coming months. One is called Chupan Chupai that stars Neelam Muneer opposite him while the other one is a romantic comedy, titled Rehbra, in which he will share screen space with Ayesha Omar and Sarish Khan.
