"Shameem is a window for me to look into the life of underprivileged women of Kohala Paien, Haripur," says Minal.

Vital to all known forms of life, water is a necessity but privilege for some. What happens when its scarcity affects families and struggling women in rural areas? Minal Khan and Yasir Hussain's upcoming telefilm Pyaas is about to delve into just that.

The telefilm produced by Fadia Wajahat is the duo's latest project. Speaking about her experience, Khan took to social media to share some insights into the story, grateful for the opportunity.

"Shameem is a window for me to look into the life of underprivileged women of Kohala Paien, Haripur who walk through many miles to fetch water for their daily use," said Minal, as she revealed glimpses into some behind-the-scenes on set, talking about her experience.

"Portraying a girl who goes through all this was really a lifetime experience for me. We consume water daily but don't realise how precious it could be, for someone living nearby."

Pyaas is by Syed Wajahat Hussain, renowned director and producer popularly known for his works Do Bol and Yaarian, who aims to shed light on important issues of survival through a number of plays and short films.

"Good luck, Wajahat bhai and thank you for giving me a challenging character. I am available in all my capacity for any such opportunity next time too," the Jalan actor posted, expressing her willingness to work on similar exciting projects in the future.

Previously, Hussain too, had shared teasers of the telefilm, starring Adnan Shah Tipu and Madiha Rizvi in supporting roles.
