Making a comeback of sorts on television, director Mehreen Jabbar is gearing up for an upcoming TV play called Dil Kiya Karey that stars Feroze Khan, Yumna Zaidi and Maryam Nafees in key roles. Written by Asma Nabeel of Khaani fame, the play is currently being shot and is all set to air on Geo Entertainment later this year.
“It is a love story basically but we have highlighted an important issue along with it,” Asma Nabeel told Instep in a telephonic conversation. “It is very tightly knit in the plot so I can’t reveal that at the moment but some of the other issues that we have touched upon include the second marriage of young widows that is considered a social taboo.”
“Whenever I write something, it is mostly about some social change,” she added.
Coming back to Dil Kiya Karey, it is a love triangle between Feroze, Yumna and Maryam. Half of the shooting has already been done in Karachi while the remaining part will be shot early next month.
Produced under the banner of 7th Sky Entertainment, the drama has an all-star cast, aside from the lead actors including Usman Mukhtar, Marina Khan, Sonia Rehman, Sarmad Khoosat, Shamim Hilaly, Abid Ali and Tanveer Jamal.
