The Zee Network just announced a new show titled ‘Yar Julahay’ which will be aired from 15th of May on Tata Sky Theatre. The Pakistani Diva Mahira Khan is playing a prominent role in this series; this is the first reunion of Indian and Pakistani artists after Pulwama attack which occurred two years ago.
The title of the drama serial is based on Gulzar’s poem and it consists of 12 episodes. The show basically pays tribute to writers and it will feature stories from all time famous writers like Saadat Hasan Manto, Gulzar, Amrita Pritam, Balwant Singh, Ismat Chughtai, and others. The Bol actress will read Ahmad Nadeem Qasmi’s story ‘Guriya’ on this show. According to Sarmad Khoosat, the Zee TV Show is inspired by the narration style called as ‘Dastangoi’.
The Story ‘Guriya’ revolves around two best friends Mehra and Bano, where Bano has a doll that resembles Mehra. The story takes interesting twists as the girls’ fondness and hate unfolds. The show ‘Yar Julahay’ gives life to the stories of Hindu and Urdu writers and pays tribute to them.
Shailja Kejriwal, Chief Creative Officer – Special Projects, ZEE says, “Each episode of ‘Yaar Julahay’ features the immersive reading of a remarkable story that is as unique and complex as the subcontinent we live in. Each one of the featured writers has processed reality through characters that we can still identify with. It was a joy to work on these classic tales with Kanwal and Sarmad Khoosat because we have collaborated with them before and they always approach a project with a certain artistic sensitivity and deep respect for the material they are working with. Their sensibility was needed for a project as unique as this.”
Guriya is one of the episodes of the Zee TV show and there will be other stories narrated by different celebrities too. This is an exciting update for fans who were looking forward to see Mahira Khan on the screen again. This is going to be a dramatic series with various interesting stories featuring the finest superstars of the subcontinent.
