Dramas are great source of entertainment especially during the current time when one is sitting at home. There is lockdown and a huge coronavirus fiasco going worldwide and one can only indulge themselves in things which can keep them away from stress and bad news coming from everywhere. In the midst of all this, the new drama serial starring our favourite Ahsan Khan and Ushna Shah ‘Bandhay Ek Dour Se’ comes as a breath of fresh air.
This on-screen unconventional celebrity couple is all set to hit our screens this month and this time, they are ready to breeze their way in Geo Entertainment’s new venture. The story is penned by Faiza Ifthikar of ‘Ranjha Ranjha Kardi’ fame and is helmed by the star director Ali Faizan. The drama is produced by Abdullah Kadwani and Asad Qureshi’s 7th Sky Entertainment.
Joining Ahsan Khan and Ushna Shah in the cast are Hina Altaf in a supporting role. Apart from her, Saba Faisal, Saba Hameed, Samina Ahmed, Noor Hassan, Madiha Rizvi, Ali Rizvi, Qavi Khan and many more.
The promos of the drama are grabbing eyeballs on social media and the duo has dazzled the viewers with their palpable chemistry in the teaser.
Speaking to media about his role in the drama, Ahsan reveals, “My character is of a young, guy-next-door, happy-go-lucky person and he tries to always keep his family united. There is also a love story revolving around him.” While talking about her role, Ushna Shah says, “I play the role of Maheen - the protagonist in the story. She is Umar’s cousin, played by Ahsan Khan. She is a very nice, bubbly, well-mannered girl who is very mature for her age.”
The leading pair also divulged that the drama will be devoid of cliched saas-bahu dilemmas and will highlight the sweet and sour life of middle-class households. “ It is very casual, light-hearted, and emotional. It is very well-shot and well-written describing issues that happen in common households. If the viewers are looking for entertainment and love old PTV, family-oriented dramas, then this project will take them back in time as it has enjoyable elements that fans will get riveted to,” states Ahsan.
“It will be a whole-hearted Pakistani family drama which will be very entertaining. It is not a typical saas-bahu drama but about love, loyalty, and also about unity amongst women in a household,” adds Ushna.
