Superstar Mahira Khan has announced her first-ever production project, titled Baarwan Khiladi, giving cricket and entertainment lovers alike a reason to celebrate.
"A coming of age story set against the backdrop of the OG of all games — cricket. A story about friendships, relationships, unity, failure, success, love and courage. A small peak into a labour of love and hard work ... from all of us to all of you," the Raees star wrote on her Instagram.
The web series is being produced for video streaming platform tapmad TV.
The actor tagged famous names including Daniyal Zafar, Kinza Hashmi, Mohsin Gillani, Saba Faisal, Sarmad Khoosat, Mira Sethi, and promising new talent such as, Shahveer Jafferi, Zarrar Khan, Khaqan Shahnawaz, Meer Yousuf, among others.
Earlier, before releasing the title of the web series, Mahira announced that this would be her first venture into production. "I would have no one better to be my co-pilot in this trip with me other than Nina Kashif."
Images reached out to actor Kinza Hashmi, who confirmed that she was the "only female with the mostly male-led cast" and that Daniyal Zafar will play the lead character.
Hashmi further revealed that “the shooting took place inside the Walled City of Lahore".
"It’s a beautiful story with cricket as its main theme, there's a hint of a love story and a mix of emotions and family drama."
Meanwhile, actor and singer Zafar and others also shared posters of the web series on their social media.
Mahira has been keeping busy it seems, despite having contracted Covid last year and spending time in isolation. She announced in December that filming for the Fawad Khan and Mahira-starrer Neelofar had finally wrapped up.
We're looking forward to the superstar showcasing her skills off screen with this new web series and wish her good luck on the venture!
