Looks like we won't be seeing Saba Qamar and Gohar Rasheed unite on screen after all.
The two were set to work on upcoming drama Badshah Begum but Saba Qamar had taken her leave from the show. Speaking on a radio show on FM99, producer Rafay Rashdi pointed out that it was "a mutual decision."
"Saba is a very refined actor. I was going to work with her in the project Badshah Begum but she didn't get on board. I respect her decision on that and I wish her the best for whichever project she takes on. *Badshah Begum is a project very close to me, probably as close as Saba's next project is to her, so we decided to part ways."
Rashdi then revealed who the team is eyeing for the role after Qamar's departure.
"We're looking at Iman Ali for the drama," he announced on the show.
However, speaking to Images, Rashdi said that Iman isn't confirmed to sign on to the project.
"We were earlier in talks for casting Saba Qamar, but have decided to move on with official replacements and are in talks with Iman All to play Badshah Begum. All of this depends on timelines and production dates. However nothing is finalized and it's all in discussion stages, and we are as excited as everyone else to reveal when something becomes official, and the show must go on," said the producer.
Speaking to Images, Iman Ali confirmed that she is in talks for the project and is "reading the script right now."
Will this mark Iman Ali's return to TV? We can only wait!
