Director of 2019 massive hit Cheekh is finally bringing another project to television screens. Ishqiya stars Feroze Khan, Hania Amir, Ramsha Khan and Gohar Rasheed. Ishqiya will reunite Woh Ik Pal jodi Ramsha Khan and Feroze Khan. With the drama beginning tonight we reached out to the captain of the ship, Badar Mehmood for a quick chat about Ishqiya, his drama’s stars and Cheekh.
Saba Qamar and Bilal Abbas starrer Cheekh had become a phenomenal success last year and this was right after Balaa. After giving us such hits, Badar is not ready to take pressure of audience who have high expectations from him. While talking exclusively to box office detail, Badar shared that He is clear on his vision with this one as well and is happy with the message it will give.
“I am not ready to take a pressure of high expectations. All I wanted is to give some strong message after end of every drama. And same goes with Ishqiya. Girls of our society can easily relate themselves with the story. “
From the teasers and title of the drama it seems to be a story exploring love and hate dynamics within a household. But the teasers are just a glimpse of what to expect but not the whole story. With Ishqiya Badar hopes the same.
“Don’t judge a book by its cover. YES Ishqiya sounds like a romantic name. But audience are going to witness strong emotions. Ups and downs of relationships. Ishqiya based on social issue with strong message.”
The director doesn’t believe in picking favorites but acknowledging every individual for their hardwork. While talking about Feroze Khan, Ramsha Khan and Hania Amir he revealed,” I had a great time with all of them. They all were focused and hardworking actors.”
The Big Bang Entertainment production is replacing Ali Rehman, Ushna Shah and Naveen Waqar starrer Bewafa. Who are you excited to see in Ishqiya?
