Pakistani dramas and their content have been breaking stereotypes with dramas like Udaari and Khuda Mera Bhi Hai as they touch upon topics of sexual abuse and raising intersex children respectively.
And now, Atiqa Odho and Sania Saeed are all set to come together in a drama based on Alzheimer’s.
The TV serial is titled Piyari Bitto and has been written by Saji Gul .
Saji Gul told images that it:
“touches upon the topic of Alzheimer’s.”
“It’s about adoption and the relations we take for granted, Sania Shamshad is playing Bitto, Atiqa’s daughter who is adopted by her phupoo Sania Saeed.”
“Atiqa will appear in a very different role… a very dark one. A narcissistic mother.”
“Piyari Bitto is a very interesting project as my role in it has a lot of range and variation. There are three distinct looks for my role and the switchovers shall hopefully be very interesting for my fans,” said Atiqa Odho.
She is very excited to work with her old time friends:
“I’m excited about the project as it’s a strong family drama with a stellar cast. Two of my old time friends, Sania Saeed and Farah Shah are coming on-screen with me after many years and this is all very exciting for us and hopefully for our audiences as well. Time shall tell how Piyari Bitto is received by the audiences.”
The drama also features Fawad Khan (from Jeevan Hathi), Farah Shah and Rashid Farooqui. It is produced by Musharraf Jaffery.
The drama will be airing in May.
