Pakistan’s drama industry has long been known for the impeccable and relatable stories it has delivered through and through. Unfortunately, in the last few years, the content that has been produced is nothing short of rubbish. With predictable plots consisting of either a helpless heroine or cruel in-laws. And if not these there is always a trope where the evil woman is looking to steal someone’s husband and honestly we are sick of seeing this. And, on the other hand, our audience’s loving Green TV Entertainment has also emerged in the drama industry of Pakistan. Green TV has jumped into the game with outstanding scripts and directions for every drama serial.
In the midst of these all, there comes a project which breathes fresh air into our lungs. Mahira Khan’s new drama serial Razia is one such project. Since the release of its trailer social media users have been singing praises and honestly we see the hype! Here is everything you need to know about Razia:
What does it bring to the table?
This drama serial Razia includes an extraordinary cast of A-listed actors such as Mahira Khan, Mohib Mirza, and Momal Sheikh. The limited series promises a strong female-centric story that tells the tale of a young girl navigating through the patriarchal society to claim her space in this world.
This project is written and directed by Mohsin Ali. He also has many noticeable projects to his name such as Parde Mein Rehne Do, Dunk, Chhupan Chhupai, Zinda Bhaag, and Express TV’s latest Saba Qamar starrer Gunnah. So we are pretty confident in getting our hopes up for this project.
From the trailer, it is evident that the story would be different from anything we have seen before. It promises to avoid sensationalism and the usual trope of either a helpless heroine or the cruel in-laws.
Here’s the trailer in case you missed it:
Mohib Mirza’s new avatar in the show is so promising and Momal’s calm energy is perfect in contrast with Mohib’s character. However, Mahira’s role is still not clear whether she will be the narrator or at some point will appear as Razia. Shaheera Jalil Albasit is all set to make her acting debut with this series as Razia.
Who is Shaheera Jalil Albasit?
Our leading lady for the series is a real-life versatile woman who has long been leaving her mark. Shaheera Jalil Albasit is a full-bright scholar who is a policy strategist, a legislation lobbyist, and a member of Youth Parliament Pakistan. She has worked on the approval of a youth quota bill in parliament that aims to reserve a 30% quota of every party’s tickets for youth. This much-needed legislation sets up the stage for youth’s participation in politics. She has now decided to step foot in the world of acting and we wish nothing but the best for her!
