The play is called Tajdeede Wafa and is produced by Momina Durraid, directed by Ilyas Kashmiri and written by Sameera Fazal. It is going to air on Hum TV sometime in September.
We Got in touch with main lead cast Naveen Waqar :
Tell us about your character ?
I play Neha. She is an independent, working woman with a practical and no nonsense approach to life. She is witty, hard working and sassy and her family is very important to her. What I like about her is that she is very strong, slightly bossy, is in no way doormat and believes that if two people aren’t getting along they should amicably part ways. The biggest obstacle she is facing is that she and the man she has married out of love doesnt seem to be putting any work into their marriage and she feels the burden of it entirely. Yet, to their family they seem to be the picture perfect example of how a husband and wife should be.
The last project I did was Kuch Na Kaho with Ilyas Kashmiri and this marks my 3rd project with him. The experience has been a good one so far as it’s a fun cast. We have been shooting in Islamabad and still have another spell to go. There’s Haroon Shahid, Ahmed Ali and Annie Jaffery, Abid Ali and Laila Zuberi to name a few.
About the story plot ?
The story is about family values. Its about how parents influence their children by making an example of the kind of relationship they have with each other, and how it affects the kids’ relationships once they are adults. It’s about the sacrifices that come with love and how far someone can go just to make a relationship work. It’s a bittersweet story with plenty of laugh out loud moments and how true it is when its said kids are a reflection of their parents.
