In the digital age we live in, web series have become the latest trend, with several young and ace artists exploring the medium. Amidst renowned names such as Kashif Nisar, Mehreen Jabbar and Rafay Rashdi, who are working on releasing their series in the coming months, there is a slew of aspiring directors and scriptwriters who are trying their luck too.
Among them is writer-director Bilal Yousufzai, who is gearing up for the release of his first web series on July 18. Titled The Roomeos, the upcoming five-episode series will highlight issues that confront the youth in present times, in a humorous way. A soft trailer launch of the series was held in Karachi last week where it generated much appreciation from those in attendance. The entire cast and crew was present on the occasion.
Featuring three roommates, Hunain the Vlogger, Faham the jugat master and Rais the over ambitious, who have a completely different take on life, the web series delves into their struggles as they wish to pursue their dreams.
The cast includes Faham Usman, Rais ur Rehman, Hunain Riaz, Warda Jamal and Haram Shaikh while the series is presented by BVC Originals, in association with RKF and Dramaculas.
The five episodes will tackle one issue each, according to the director, who has tried to put out a relatable narrative for the young people who spend most of their time on smart phones.
