Adnan Siddiqui has a new drama coming out and it's based on the 1947 Partition massacre.

He took to social media to share the news: "I feel so overwhelmed to finally present the exhilarating first look of the extremely ambitious and highly anticipated period play Ghughi."

The actor put up a short description of the storyline without delving into too many details.

"The serial shall be based on Amrita Pritam's despair account of the massacre during the 1947's partition. She vehemently spoke about the violence against women of all cast and creed leading to a total disbelief in the word humanity," he wrot.

The period drama will mainly focus on a romantic relationship between a Muslim and a Hindu.

Ghughi has been adapted, written and narrated by Amna Mufti, who wrote the 2016 fantasy film Khaemae Mein Matt Jhankain. It has been directed by Iqbal Hussain.

The serial will premier on TV One.
