Actors Ahsan Khan and Kinza Hashmi will be seen together in an upcoming series, Clean Sweep. The entertainment industry seems to be now exploring ideas around Pakistan’s favourite sport — cricket. Recently, Hareem Farooq announced her upcoming series 22 Qadam, which is about female cricketers. Similarly Clean Sweep revolves around the T20 World Cup, although it comes with a twist — the show is associated with the Sindh Solid Waste Management Board hence there’s an environmental message involved.
A recently released teaser shows Khan in cricket gear stepping onto a field and batting, with commentary and a crowd cheering in the background.
The story revolves around an Australian-born Pakistani girl, Noor, played by Hashmi, who is visiting Karachi to write her thesis on environmental pollution, and a British-born Pakistani, Yousuf, played by Khan, who has come to Pakistan to complete his coaching hours for his coaching certification Level-1.
Along with Karachi residents, they take on the mission to clean their surroundings during the Cricket World Cup and contend with the ignorance of people regarding solid waste and the solid waste mafia.
This is the first time the pair will be seen together on screen. Khan was last seen in the drama Fraud, whereas Hashmi’s drama Mere Ban Jao is currently on-air. The series is directed by Ali Farhan Anchan, who has previously worked with both stars — Hashmi in Ruposh and Khan in Merey Humnasheen. It is produced by Zeekay Films and Huma Khan and penned by Zeekay.
