Zahid Ahmed’s ‘Daldal’ – Another Step Towards Dramas Breaking Stereotypes

Pakistani drama-makers are finally coming out of cliched storylines and introducing new ideas. Our dramas are bringing taboos to life with strong story lines.

Zahid Ahmed’s next project will also tap into a subject matter which has a social stigma attached to it. Titled ‘Daldal’ the drama will focus on the subject of human trafficking.

“It’s a very interesting story,” Ahmed told Instep. “It tells the story of a man who belongs to the lower strata of society and wishes to settle in the West through whatever means he can. But once he makes it to the West, life isn’t as smooth as he thought it would be. From there on, the narrative takes an interesting turn as he is forced to do things that he doesn’t want to.”

Daldal will highlight the theme of human trafficking and aims to discourage the concept. Aside from Ahmed, Daldal also features Armeena Khan, who plays his wife, Asma Abbas who will be seen as his mother and Muneeb Butt.
