Director Wajahat Rauf, the man behind 2015 romantic comedy Karachi Se Lahore and its sequel Lahore Se Aagey (2016), recently announced the third part which will be titled Karachi Se Lahore 3. While that is scheduled to release on Eid ul Fitr next year, the director, who also hosts a popular online show Voice Over Man, is gearing up for another project. It is an upcoming web series that will feature one of the most sought-after female actors, Mehwish Hayat, who was last seen on the big screen in Load Wedding opposite Fahad Mustafa.

Rauf confirmed the news earlier this year and said that he has penned the series himself which he will direct under the banner of Gateway Entertainment. The untitled project will mark Mehwish’s web series debut while it will also feature actor Asad Siddiqui, who is currently essaying important roles in drama serials Balaa, Ro Raha Hai Dil and Tawaan.

In a recent interview, Asad Siddiqui shared that he will be portraying a character that is not negative and is quite different from the roles he has portrayed in the past.

Though not much has been disclosed about the upcoming series yet, for now we know that the director plans to shoot the series like a film. Sounds exciting!
