Junaid Khan will be seen in a completely new avatar of a negative character in the upcoming drama serial ‘Hania’, a press release reports.
It is the first time that the audience will see Khan in a dark persona of an abusive husband to Zoya Nasir. While the actor has played several characters that have been semi-negative, this will be his first as an outright antagonist.
While talking to the media about his character, Khan said, “I want to challenge myself in every role I choose, ‘Hania’ is a new turn as I have never played a character that has no grey shades but is completely and blatantly dark and aggressive, with motives that match his personality.”
“The story of ‘Hania’ highlights a common problem that’s deeply rooted in our society, with the girl’s parents not asking about family history and only seeing their wealth when they are marrying their daughters off,” he said, adding, “this is actually turning out to be a major issue that needs to be addressed.”
The drama serial is directed by Qasim Ali Mureed and written by Door Way entertainment. The cast members include Osama Tahir, Tanvir Jamal, MariumMirza, Ghana Ali, Wasim Abbas, Fordous Jamal and Hassan Ahmed. Hania will be airing soon on ARY Digital.
