Sabaat written by Kashif Anwar and directed by Shahzad Kashmiri, produced by Momina Duraid, the main cast includes Mawra Hocane, Usman Mukhtar, Sarah Khan and Ameer Gilani.
Sabaat is the story of a strong-headed and ambitious women’s rights activist Anaya , a government servant’s daughter who comes from a modest background and understands the bitter truths of life.
Mawra says Sabaat is one of the most special projects of her life as the feedback has been much more than her expectations.
As soon as she read Sabaat she instantly knew she wanted to do this project. As the drama reflects our society.
Mawra’s character in Sabaat is of a shy yet fearless girl. In an interview Mawra described her character as, Anaya is loving but not very forgiving because of her clear distinction of right and wrong. These are some of her traits that she has imbibed while playing the character. Her character is patient yet courageous as she is both docile and fierce when it comes to her family.
It is an entertaining drama and not a sermon so the messages are intricately placed throughout the project.
Being a part of Sabaat has been a very fulfilling and rejuvenating experience for Mawra.
This was just what she needed at this stage of her career. The character has impacted her hugely on a personal level as she is ready to face the world so she is hoping that it will impact the viewers as well. Mawra feels like a totally different person after playing Anaya.
Mawra believes women are strong and are home maker so Inaya does not fight back with her in laws. When you marry or love, you become softer and someone else protects you, women in our society wants to sustain their relationship
Our society discourages boy’s going for seperate homes they threaten their children which Mawra thinks is wrong if certain situation has arised a man should be able to stand on his own feet.
