Nadia Jamil, who gave a noteworthy performance in Behaad (2013), is marking her return with a new TV show.

"Nadia is doing a serial with Gohar Rasheed for Urdu1," her brother told Images. "The serial is focused around highlighting the atrocity of child marriage."

Nadia will be playing the role of a lady health worker, he added.

The serial directed by Angeline Malik will also star Sarmad Khoosat, Mehreen Raheal and Ali Tahir among others. It will be set in Punjab's countryside.

Explaining why Nadia took a break, her brother said, "She had taken a break due to health reasons, but decided to take this project due to the subject."
