Zindagi Gulzar Hai duo Fawad Khan and Sanam Saeed re-unite for Zindagi’s upcoming original which streams on ZEE5. Award-winning Asim Abbasi (of Cake) is roped in as director. The series highlights magical realism and supernatural fantasy within a family reunion setting. Themes of love, loss and reconciliation will also be explored.
In this series, Khan plays a single parent – charming but ridden with guilt for what he has lost. With his son, he tries to be every bit the father his own father was and wasn’t. Saeed plays the central female character in the series. Harbouring otherworldly secrets, she takes it upon herself to heal and make whole, everyone who surrounds her.
Ms Shailja Kejriwal, Chief Content Officer – Special Projects at Zee Entertainment Enterprises expresses: “We’ve had a very rewarding association with Fawad, Sanam and Asim individually with their past projects and are thrilled to bring them together on this one. This time we’ve experimented with the genre as well as the storyline. While audiences have often seen shows on family dynamics this one is infused with realms of mystique and fantasy, making it a fascinating watch.”
“Zindagi has become a pioneer. Not only for India-Pakistan OTT collaborations but also for encouraging artists to push boundaries of narrative storytelling. I experienced that with Churails, I am experiencing that again with this project. Under Shailja’s support and guidance, Zindagi has truly become a home for many filmmakers like me, where we can see our craziest, wildest ideas come to fruition,” says Asim.
Zindagi which aired on TV as a channel earlier is now available on ZEE5 with over 50+ shows. It made its mark with original shows like Churails, Dhoop Ki Deewar and one of its most anticipated series Qatil Haseenaon Ke Naam that premiered last week and got great reviews from all quarters.
