The upcoming TV serial has been written by Zanjabeel Asim Shah who has also written Pyaar ke Sadqay, Bashar Momin and Cheekh. It is being directed by Qasim Ali Mureed of Mere Humsafar under the banner of Momina Duraid production for HUM TV.

On Friday, Hocane shared the first look of the drama on her Instagram account, revealing that she plays a character called Dania, who is also referred to as Diana. She was raised by her grandfather, a dedicated admirer of monarchies, who treats his granddaughter like a princess. The caption questions whether Dania will share the same trials and tribulations of a royal.

According to a press release, the serial is said to have a glimpse of love, anguish and tragedy as the drama captures “the reminiscence of Lady Diana” in Dania.

Her character is a political leader, a philanthropist who has won the hearts of people where she resides. “It’s about time that we need to portray strong female figures and Meri Shehzadi is filled with these messages, where the viewers will learn along the way,” Hocane said in the official statement.

Two years ago, the actor made her TV comeback with Mushk alongside Imran Ashraf. A year later Hocane was seen in multiple TV shows such as horror show Neeli Zinda Hai, Amanat with Imran Abbas and Saboor Aly and most recently Badzaat with Ashraf. Now the actor has been paired with Rehman, with whom she has never shared a screen before.

Hocane is also gearing up for her production debut for Tich Button which stars Farhan Saeed, Feroze Khan, Iman Ali and Sonya Hussyn. It will be releasing in theatres nationwide on October 28.
