Shaista Lodhi, long associated with morning shows, has now become a household name. Her shows have made her a hit among women who used to tune into her shows everyday and are now looking forward to her upcoming morning show also. Shaista plunged into the drama world a while back and is now all set to appear in upcoming drama ‘Khan’ with a strong role as a politician.
Talking to Images, about the serial, Shaista says, “Khan is an almost feudal type of drama. It will be relatable for the average person because it will remind them of Pakistan’s political system.”
There were rumors that Khan is inspired from Imran Khan’s life. But Shaista clarified “The drama doesn’t take inspiration from Imran Khan.”
She elaborates about the drama’s themes, “[The drama explores] the way revenge is taken in politics, the way seats are [sold] or tickets are given by parties or how sympathy is exploited. An example is Benazir Bhutto’s case, sympathy was exploited by her party. You can expect to see similar events in this drama.”
“My character has a vast range. From being a politician’s wife to a politician herself. From a childhood lover to a dedicated wife. There are many different shades and that has been a challenge for me to play.”
