Many Pakistani actors are now playing around with the web-series format and Shamoon Abbasi is the latest actor to jump in.
His upcoming show Mind Games is being directed by Farhan Tajammul and has been written by Inaam Shah, whom Abbasi is full of praise for: "Inaam is a very detailed writer, he gets into the nitty gritty details. I can't say how much research he's been doing but I can tell he's done a good job."
Talking about his role in the show being produced by Picture Wala Productions, the actor shares, "As you know, I like to do projects based in reality rather than fantasy stories. The plot of this series is based on some true events, and is partially about money laundering done via models from Pakistan. That part intrigued me and I wanted to get more involved; the character that I'm playing is part of that gang that does all this business. There are a few complications, things go awry and then the story revolves around the protagonist, the cop played by Emmad Irfani."
Other than Shamoon and Emmad, the cast also includes Kinza Razzak and Sana Fakhar among others; at the moment, Mind Games is being shot in Pakistan but Shamoon says they'll probably be shooting parts of it in Canada as well.
No release date has been announced yet.
