Hiba Bukhari to play a ‘nice, shy village girl’ opposite Farhan Saeed in upcoming drama
Actor Hiba Bukhari is starring in an upcoming drama alongside Farhan Saeed. Written by Hashim Nadeem and directed by Saife Hasan, the drama will soon be telecast on HUM TV.
“The project is very interesting and it’s different from other dramas these days. It is not like a typical story,” Bukhari told Images. “It has that classic touch, but it’s different. Like how nowadays, there’s saas-bahu or the same love triangle…this [drama] is not like that, it’s very different.”
The drama will also have some “action and romance” in it, said the Fitoor actor. Her role is of a “nice, shy and sorted village girl”. The story will show how life changes her. Speaking about the writing, she added, “I always wanted to do his [Nadeem] play. I am glad that I am doing this, I am more than glad.”
The Meray Humnasheen actor emphasised that the story will matter more than individual roles. “Its not about being the mean lead, it’s about the whole story. I cannot say who’s the hero and who’s the villain — yes, there are heroes and villains in this [drama],” she said. “But as I said, it has action along with many other things.”
The cast also includes Asif Raza Mir and Maham. The role of her character’s friend, and the one played by Mir will also have interesting tracks, according to her.
“My work experience was amazing,” said Bukhari. She likes playing different and challenging characters instead of the typical roles, she explained. “[Playing this character] had many tasks that were difficult like shooting in immense heat in the desert where we did a lot of action. It was very interesting and I loved it.”
The drama has no fixed release date yet, however, according to the Deewangi actor, it will be on your screens in a month or two.
