Singer Junaid Khan has been roped in for upcoming drama serial, Khasara.

After Mann Mayal, Sana Shahnawaz production is working on this new drama which will be directed by Shahid Shafaat.

Speaking to Images, the Dil Ki Lagi leading man revealed that the drama "revolves around four characters."

"They will be played by myself, Mikaal Zulfiqar, Sarwat Gilani and Sonia Mishal."

Elaborating on his character, Junaid said, "My character is a simple man from a village near Karachi. He has a simple government job, a very normal life, with a wife and two children, and is very content with it. He doesn't have many desires and is of the mindset that one should make the best of what one has. That's not to say he's lazy, he's very hardworking. He's just the type to be very happy with what he has."

Junaid also gave some tidbits about the rest of the cast.

"Sonia plays my wife in the series and she is the more ambitious one. She wants more for the family with dreams to move to the big city, gain more and more success and stretch boundaries."

The plot for Mikaal Zulfiqaar and Sarwat Gilani will be rather different as Junaid explained, "On the other side you'll see Mikaal's character, who plays my school friend, and his recent marriage with Sarwat. They live in Karachi and Sarwat comes from a well off family. after their marriage their lives have started to change."

Khasara will bring two stories together as two very different lifestyles will meet for a reason that is yet to be revealed.

"Khasara's story begins with Mikaal's family visiting my family. Why they visit and what happens afterwards is what you'll find out in the show," he adds.

No release date has been given for Khasara but Junaid Khan said that the project will be for ARY Digital.
