On March 16, Director Haseeb Hasan shared his favourite moment from Dhoop Ki Deewar to wish Sajal Aly and Ahad Raza Mir a happy wedding anniversary.
The video marked the first look of the upcoming ZEE5 web series starring the duo. It showed Ahad’s Vishal cheering up Sajal’s Sara over the phone with his casual song, “Sara please don’t be mad, warna India and Pakistan will very sad… Sara, Sara Sara….”
Now, ZEE5 has released a video featuring Sajal, to ask a very important question from both its Pakistani and Indian viewers. The video sees Sajal in her character from the web series narrating, “I wanted to ask a simple question from you all. But let’s understand the context first. I was only 19-years-old when my dad lost his life in a war on the border. Now you tell me; Am I Pakistani or Hustani?”
Written in the backdrop of Kashmir and Pulwama attacks, Dhoop Ki Deewar explores the aftermath of war and civil unrest by recreating the indescribable trauma families of martyred army officers feel on both sides of the border.
Written by Umera Ahmad, Dhoop Ki Deewar also stars Manzar Sehbai, Samiya Mumtaz, Alyy Khan, Adnan Jaffer, Samina Ahmed and Zeb Rehman.
Speaking of the show with BBC Urdu in February, Ahad had divulged, "Without giving too much away, the show just tells how people deal with the effects of war. We always rave about wars and enemies, but in retrospect, we don't think about the horrible consequences of it. It was a difficult shoot, for many reasons."
The actor added, "I hope people see and have a look on a neutral stance as well." He also denied knowing anything about its release date, "I am curious about the release date! I wish I knew but hopefully, very soon."
