Hania Aamir and Momin Saqib to star in Eid telefilm Dil Ke Chor
Hania Aamir and Momin Saqib are starring in Shazia Wajahat's directorial debut, which is set to release this Eid.
"It's our own showcase production for HUM TV," Wajahat told Images, adding that the story is a "very cute" romantic comedy written by Raheel Ahmed. The cast includes Aamir, Saqib, Rubina Ashraf and Hina Dilpazeer.
"Momin and Hania have never been cast alongside each other before," she said. "We did Raqs-e-Bismil with Momin and we're doing a lot of projects with Hania, including our film, Pardeh Mein Rehne Do."
She then explained how the idea came about.
"I love the experience of working with her because she's so full of life, so she was well suited to the bubbly character we wanted. As for Momin, he hasn't done a comic role on television before. Reading the script, I just thought given the chance, his comic timing would be well-suited for the role."
As a producer, Wajahat said she had accompanied her husband on set quite often for a long time behind the monitor. "I've learnt a lot of him and he was the one who encouraged me and pushed me, saying I think you have the eye for it and will do a good job. I have him by my side so it's going really well, Alhamdulillah.
While no exact date has been announced yet, the telefilm will be airing during Eid.
