Asim Abbasi have established himself in the list of A-list directors in a very short interval of time. His directorial Cake has received from all over the globe and is tipped as one of the finest movies ever made in Pakistan.
He recently, confirmed that he is coming up with a web series. For now it’s called Churails and it will revolve around the stereo types in our society.
“Hojayein tayaar, khwateen aur hazraat. Especially hazraat. Jald arahi hain kuch rangeen Churailein, aapki deep-rooted misogyny ki band bajaanay,” He Tweeted.
Earlier Asim Abbasi shared how it had been a very tough experience for him to create the web series.
“500+ script pages, 150+ locations, 100+ characters, 75+ days of principal photography…. And finally it’s a wrap!
Thank you to everyone who was a part of this insane journey – a journey that broke all of us into a million little pieces, physically, mentally and emotionally. I don’t know if the blood, sweat and tears will show on screen or if the end result will be what we had hoped it would be or if our audiences are even ready for this narrative… But this much I do know:
a) hundreds of people have worked tirelessly for better part of this year, to help craft and visualise this story and I am indebted to each and every one of them.
b) every female character in this series will kick some serious douchebag ass and be shamelessly unapologetic. Just like the good lord intended,” wrote the director on his Instagram.
Asim Abbasi also added, “I am super excited about Churails. It has been creatively such a liberating experience for me, to tell this story as unabashedly as it needs to be told. The web series is expected to release on an international platform, most probably in the first quarter of next year. Cast will be revealed in due time.”
