With Humsafar hitting the bull’s eye perfectly and Manto managing to disturb people in the best possible manner – as per expectations; Sarmad Khoosat is one person I’m sure, who has set the standards too high for himself to achieve them, and the audience is just finding ‘something like never before’ when looking at a project with the magician’s credits. Known for always bringing that larger than life persona to his work, his upcoming television serial, Mor Mahal proves nothing but to continue the Sarmad Khoosat legacy!
Written by the renowned poet and writer, Sarmad Sehbai, Mor Mahal is a period play and interestingly enough has the most exciting cast a drama serial would have ever seen! With artists par excellence like Sania Saeed, Hina Bayat, Fizza Ali and Ali Saleem, the serial will also mark the debut of rockstar turned actor, Umair Jaswal and the comeback of the ultimate rock chick of Pakistan, Meesha Shafi. According to reports it also stars a whole new bunch of some really talented actors from theatre.
In a recent interview the powerhouse, Meesha Shafi stated that the serial is a period genre based two hundred years back, the theme and story are incredibly intellectual and different, which is why we’ll get to see the superstar returning to television after more than five years!
Hoping this is something like we’ve never seen before and of course nothing less to be expected when the ship has a Captain like Sarmad Khoosat. The serial will be aired on Geo TV soon and just like every other Sarmad project, it would turn out a masterpiece and contribute to the heritage in the best possible way!
