Love transcends borders and all barriers. Reminding us of this unmatched power of love, Sajal Aly and Ahad Raza Mir-starrer Dhoop Ki Deewar will highlight that our collective humanity will overwrite the circulation of hate.

According to a press release, the much-awaited web-series will be available for streaming on 25th June on ZEE5 and is a key addition to ZEE5’s already vast library of Pakistani shows. Written by the prolific Umera Ahmed and helmed by Haseeb Hasan, Dhoop Ki Deewar fosters the message of ‘Heart Over Hate’ and brings forth a cross-border tale of love, family and loss. 

Vishal from India, played by Ahad, and Sara from Pakistan, essayed by Sajal, find their lives interconnected when they lose their fathers in war and their common grief becomes a foundation of their friendship.

Comprising a stellar cast of Samiya Mumtaz, Zaib Rehman, Savera Nadeem, Samina Ahmed, Manzar Sehbai, Raza Talish, Aly Khan and Adnan Jaffar amongst others, the web series explores the impact of martyrdom and war on the two families and how they realize that peace is the only answer.

Speaking about his recent show, the director said, “Dhoop Ki Deewar is a reflection of positivity beyond borders, religion and societal biases. The sole essence of the show lies in the simplicity of its narrative. In the show, a subject such as a cross-border love story has been dealt with so differently and has an underlying message of peace, harmony and joy of life. Our entire team including Misbah Shafique has put our heart and soul into this little labour of love and are hoping for a heart-warming response from our viewers.”

The playwright shared, “Dhoop Ki Deewar is very close to my heart. My inspiration for the story stemmed from the sole thought that no matter which country, religion or belief you belong to, at the end of the day the grief lived is the same everywhere and it is much bigger than you and me. It is a story of love, grief and loss that people across borders and overseas can relate to on a human level.”
