Zindagi to launch two new shows for festive season

MUMBAI: Zindagi is set to launch two new shows, ‘Daam’ and ‘Ashk’, this festive season.

‘Daam’ will premiere on 26 October at 8:30 pm, while ‘Ashk’ will launch on 29 October airing at 9:30 pm.

‘Daam’ will question true friendship and love. It narrates the tale of two best friends, Zara and Maliha, whose bond remains unbroken despite their economic disparities. This seemingly unbreakable friendship faces a challenge when Maliha’s brother, Junaid, shows interest in marrying Zara. Maliha cannot fathom her friend from a lower social class as her possible sister-in-law. In an effort to break Zara and Junaid’s bond of love, she offers a friend a ‘daam’ to leave her brother.

The conflict between choosing love or money forms the core of this drama. The show stars Aamina Sheikh, Adeel Hussain, Sanam Baloch and Sanam Saeed. It sheds light on the social complications of life. The show has been created by Mehreen Jabbar.

Meanwhile, the second show ‘Ashk’ stars popular hero Fawad Khan and presents different manifestations of love to its viewers.

It’s a story of Rohail (Fawad Khan) who lives in Turkey and has never experienced pain in love. His friend Madiha has only loved him but it’s not mutual. Breaking Madiha’s heart, Rohail leaves for Pakistan to marry his cousin Mehr-u-nisa, but on his arrival, rejects her and expresses his preference for her sister, Zaib-u-nisa. Both sisters share a strong bond and Rohail’s sudden change of heart leaves them in a lot of pain and angst. Zaib, however, agrees to marry Rohail just to take revenge for her sister.

Besides Khan, the show also stars Mehreen Raheel amongst others.
