Zindagi to premiere telefilm ‘Behadd’
MUMBAI: After the airing of ‘Zindagi Gulzar Hai’, actor Fawad Khan is back on Zindagi with the telefilm ‘Behadd’ which will premiere on 30 August at 10:15 pm on the channel.
Khan previously played Zaroon Junaid in ‘Zindagi Gulzar Hai’ and will now play the suave Jamal Ahmad aka Jo in the telefilm. Written by renowned author Umera Ahmed (of ‘Zindagi Gulzar Hai’ fame), the telefilm will also feature Nadia Jamil and Sajjal Ali in central roles along with Khan.
ZEEL chief creative special projects Shailja Kejriwal said, “’Behadd’ has been highly lauded in Pakistan for its story and performances. The film has a very progressive storyline that highlights the fact that there is a very thin line between selflessness and selfishness in love which, if crossed, can cause lot of heartache. It’ll be a pleasant surprise for Fawad Khan’s fans as he will be seen in a new avatar.”
‘Behadd’ revolves around the complexities and dynamics of a relationship between a mother and a daughter, and how their love for each other becomes the cause of their heartache. It is a story of three characters, Masooma (played by Nadia Jamil), her 15-year old daughter Maha (played by Sajjal Ali) and Masooma’s best friend’s brother Jo (enacted by Fawad Khan).
After her husband’s death in a road accident, Masooma’s life centres around her job and her teenage daughter. After some years, Jo returns to Pakistan and becomes a part of Masooma’s life once again. While Masooma is happy to have an old friend around, she is pleasantly surprised to see Maha bond with Jo with great ease and comfort. Things start changing when Jo proposes to Masooma and she decides to take Maha’s opinion about them getting married. But Maha ends up doing something that crosses all the limits and all three lives change forever.
