It feels like the ban on Pakistani artists in India has been lifted a bit as the most surprising news update of the day is that Raees actress Mahira to grace Zee Theatre’s upcoming show Yaar Julahay.
An exciting news update for all fans of the stunning and one of Pakistan’s finest nuanced film and TV stars across the globe is that the immensely loved global star Raees actress Mahira to grace Zee Theatre’s upcoming show Yaar Julahay.
The prominent Indian channel Zee’s Zee Theatre wing giving a pleasant surprise to all fans and netizens has officially announced their new series wherein they have roped in one of the Pakistani film and TV industry’s finest global superstar Mahira Khan who is going to be a main and prominent part of it.
Titled Yaar Julahay, this is going to be a dramatic series that spreads across 12 episodes. An interesting part about the name of the series is that it has been inspired by a Gulzar poem of the same name which pays homage and tribute to writers that craft their stories with the deftness of master weavers wherein the first episode which features Mahira Khan will be going on air digitally on Tata Sky Theatre at 2 pm and 8 pm. Mahira is going to be reading Ahmad Nadeem Qasmi’s classic story which has been titled ‘Guriya’.
Guriya is basically a story about two best friends named Mehra and Bano. Bano has a doll that has a striking resemblance with Mehra but Mehra does not like that doll at all. With the passage of time, we would see how their fondness and love-hate angle for the doll grow manifolds. Towards the end, however, the unconventional and out-of-the-box twist comes into the storyline which subtly unfolds and reveals the entire mystery surrounding the doll.
Yaar Julahay also brings to the forefront the stories of progressive Hindi and Urdu writers which include Gulzar, Saadat Hasan Manto, Ismat Chughtai, Munshi Premchand, Amrita Pritam, Qurratulain Haider, Balwant Singh, Asad Muhammad Khan, Ghulam Abbas, Rajinder Singh Bedi, and Intezar Hussain. The readers have an ensemble cast of the biggest A-lister Pakistani stars like Sarmad Khoosat, Sarwat Gilani, Nimra Bucha, Fawad Khan, Sania Saeed, Irfan Khoosat, Yasra Rizvi, Samiya Mumtaz, and Faysal Qureshi.
