WEB DESK: One of the finest actors of Pakistani Drama Industry, Adnan Siddiqui is producing a drama, Seeta Bagri, a play on Hindu minorities, the Bagri clan.
Sarwat Gillani and Bushra Ansari are rolled up for the drama and they are doing the leading role. Talking about the her role in “Seeta Bagri”, Sarwat said,
“I play Seeta, who believes in women’s education and wants to promote it by giving classes to underprivileged girls of her community. She is the epitome of calmness and honesty,” Gillani tells Images.
There’s more to the Seeta’s education ambition, a love twist in the drama.
“Bushra Ansari plays a rich Hindu bangle factory owner named Nandani Daas, who comes into Seeta’s house and marries Seeta’s tenant/love interest, Ruttan Laal, played by Jibran. She wants to have a child with him soon as she never married and had kids. Meanwhile, Seeta’s father Badri Naath (played by Qawi) takes Ruttan Lal and his cousin Mala Rani (Shameen Khan) under his wings and gives them a place in his house,” explains Gillani.
Appreciating the story of the drama, Ms. Gillani said that this is a drama with a strong message.
“The story has many underlying messages and lessons for the viewers. Written and directed by Iqbal Husain, this beautifully knitted story is a breath of fresh air among the typical monotonous drama stories. Adnan Siddiqui’s first ever production looks very promising. We all are very excited for it to go on air on TV1.”
The drama is expected to be aired by September. The cast is currently hard at work.
“We have a Hindu girl Soorita teaching us Hindi and their traditional [customs]. Since Adnan is an actor himself, he truly knows how to pamper his actors and crew. We get what we need,” added Gillani.
