Do you remember the 26th of June, 2010? When everyone was wanting to stay glued to the TV screens.It was when year’s biggest drama serial was telecast. Romance in the air, political tensions rising, women clad in colorful traditional Shalwar Kameez, Men in sherwanis & kolhapuri chapals made it a treat to watch indee. Yes, I’m sure, by now you have guessed that I am talking about Daastan. A brilliant piece of work & a great novel by Razia butt executed beautifully into a memorable tv drama. It took us back to the 1940s. A treat to watch ineed but do you remember any period drama after that? Well, No. Because there has been none. It is not an easy job to make a period drama. It takes guts to invest in the genre. But here is the good news you already are familiar with that none other than Hum Tv is again bringing a magnum opus of sorts to your TV screens. Yes, I am talking about Aangan. Now that it is taking forever to launch, we thought to make your wait worth it. Let’s get into the details of the show.
It is based on the famous novel of the same name written by Khadija Masroor. The screenplay has been penned by Mustafa Afridi of Sang e Mar Mar fame. It is to be directed by Udaari’s Mohammad Ehteshamuddin & will be produced by Momina Duraid. Well, there isn’t just one thing that makes it a much awaited show. Infact, there are lots. Its huge cast includes several senior actors to the superstars which include Sajal Aly, Ahad Raza Mir, Ahsan Khan, Sonya Hussayn, Mawara Hocane, Hira Mani. Now that is seriously going to be something. I wonder if any powerhouse of talent is left to be part of the show. Another USP of the drama is Ahad-Sajal’s much awaited reunion. Sajal is going to be paired opposite Ahad & there are many twists yet to be revealed as all of the principle characters play a significant role. Previously, the drama was to be telecast in October but as of now there are no details of it arriving anytime soon. And we totally understand as it is not an easy task to make an epic.Till then, we can do with the pictures being shared by the cast members which only make us more excited.
