Sumbul Iqbal and Shahzad Sheikh will play a couple who elopes in their upcoming dramaSumbul Iqbal has signed her next and this time, the actor is pairing up with Shahzad Sheikh for an MD Productions project.
“It’s a really intense love story of a couple, Shahab and Chanda who decide to get married against the wishes of their family. It’s about the consequences of their actions, the sacrifices they have to make and how long it takes them to settle down. They realise the importance of family in the end,” shares Iqbal.
“I have to say, my character is the complete opposite of what I’m playing in Jaal so that’s fun. It’s the first time I’m working with Shahzad so there’s also that chemistry that everyone will get to see and I hope they like it.”
Talking to Images, Sheikh reveals, “We’ve shot for a few days and Sumbul’s a great co-actor with great energy; it’s a twisted love story and my character is rigid and loving at the same time, I’m enjoying doing it.”
The yet to be titled play has been written by Samina Ejaz and directed by Saima Waseem. It will air at the end of this year on Hum TV.
