Ahsan Khan, who is known for his portrayal of terrifying characters such as Choudhary Hashim in Fraud, Murad in Qissa Meherbano Ka and the infamous Imtiaz Sheikh in Udaari, will be seen in a different light — a more positive one — in his upcoming drama Mujhay Qabool Nahi.
Khan spoke to Images about his role, saying, “I was offered to choose between two characters in the drama and I chose the positive one for a change.
“I was last seen in Fraud in a negative character, hence I wanted to do something different, a positive role, this time.”
Along with Khan, the drama also features Madiha Imam, Sami Khan, Sidra Niazi, Saba Faisal and Syed Mohammad Ahmed. The actor shared a behind the scene video of the drama on his Instagram.
Mujhay Qabool Nahi’s story revolves around a family and their issues. Khan said, “The story concentrates on one family but focuses more on the cousins. So my character and Sami’s character are married to Madiha Imam and Sidra Niazi.”
He also revealed that Imam plays his love interest. “She has family issues and she isn’t able to untangle the problems. I am trying to be a saviour, but there’s also a negative character, played by Sami Khan. He manipulates her.
“The story revolves around a lot of greed and social injustice in a way but more so about how greedy humans can be and how far they’ll go to achieve what they want.”
Mujhay Qabool Nahi is directed by Aabis Raza, written by Adeel Razak and produced by 7th Sky Production. The drama was supposed to air after Ramazan but shooting is currently ongoing and it will air soon on GEO Entertainment.
