Its star-studded cast includes Farhan Saeed, Ali Rehman, Komal Meer and Shahzad Nawaz, among many others.

A new drama with a star-studded will soon air on television and its name is Badshah Begum.

With a heavy lineup that includes actors Yasir Hussain, Farhan Saeed, Zara Noor Abbas, Ali Rehman, Komal Meer and Shahzad Nawaz, the drama will air on HUM TV and is a joint collaboration between Momina Duraid Productions and Rafay Rashdi Productions.

In a comment to Images, Hussain shed a little light on the upcoming drama (though not enough to satisfy our curiosity about the intriguingly named drama). "Yes the drama has Farhan, Ali, Zara Noor Abbas and many other people who are brilliant actors. [The drama] has been written by Saji Gul."

Gul is a prominent name who has written dramas such as O Rangreza (2017) starring Sajal Aly and Bilal Abbas Khan.

"It is a very different drama and my character in particular is quite different from other [characters]," Hussain added.

Sadly, Hussain couldn't reveal too much story at this point, nor could his co-star Abbas who spoke to Images as well. She did, however, share when viewers will learn more about the upcoming drama. "Hopefully by the end of January you guys will see the teasers," she said. "Hope you guys like it."

Abbas was all praise for the cast of Badshah Begum. "There are so many amazing people [in the drama] and the cast is really huge and everybody is extremely talented," she said.

Badshah Begum was originally a film which became a television series project later on.
