Real-life couple Gohar Mumtaz and Anum Gohar are set to star in an upcoming drama Kathputli.
In this drama directed by Fahim Burney, Anum plays an innocent girl who falls for Gohar – but a series of hurdles upset their romance. The drama, which also stars Sanam Chaudhry and Farhan Malhi, sounds like standard fare.
But it's a special project for Anum because it's her first. She shared how her debut has been a long-awaited moment with Images.
"MD Production [Fahim Burney's production house] has been insisting that I act for them in the past year. But I had different priorities at the time. I was completing my studies and waiting for the right time to make my debut. Of course, working with Gohar felt like the most natural and comfortable way to begin."
Kathputli has served as a good beginning for Anum, who says she enjoyed a great relationship with the drama's production team:
"I'm blessed to work with lovely co-actors, director and production team who treated me like their very own. At the end of it, we became more like a family than anything else."
It's also been a great learning experience:
"Being on set teaches you a lot, I don't think you can learn acting from any insitution as much as you can from being on a set."
Kathputli will air on Hum TV in end of February.
