Amar Khan Is Excited About Her Ramadan Drama With Imran Ashraf
The screenwriter and actor, Amar Khan, claimed that in the comedy, she portrays a TikToker who has a lot of audacity and causes conflicts.
Ramadan is quickly approaching, which calls for lots of time spent with family. The Ramadan drama by Amar Khan and Imran Ashraf will be released on the first day of the fasting month, so there’s no need to search any more if you’re looking for family-friendly amusement. And it will either transport you to a comic age for which you long or remind you of the past’s brilliance.
Amar Khan talked about her role as Heer Jatt in a recent interview. “Heer is more of a vibe than a character — someone who is absolutely a go-getter, somebody who desires and dreams [much] big[ger] than the setup that she lives in. She is a very active TikToker and [a] sensation, [and] brings vibrancy to social media. Like a Punjabi juttni, she has a lot of audacity and causes conflicts,” she disclosed.
Khan discussed the inspiration sources for this show even though she stated that she couldn’t divulge much of the plot, especially since she wrote it. “This is my first drama and [it is] very close to my heart. Comedy plays back in [the] the 80s and 90s have been dominating the screen and viewers’ hearts, and if we see comedies like Fifty Fifty, Sona Chandi and Uncle Urfi, all of them were very different. It was not just comedy, they would [add] pop culture references and very engaging parodies of well-known personalities [who] were relevant to the viewers and [the] situation at that time.”
Amar Khan emphasised that the programs she had described were not limited to family dramas but targeted all age groups. The USPs (unique selling features) of those dramas were that they were “They were very well thought out [and] layered — these were the USPs [unique selling points] of those dramas and I was very inspired by those stories. If I ever had to write something for TV, not that I planned [on doing so], I knew it had to be [along] those lines so I think this is my tribute [to] that time.”
Khan claimed that her drama has all the necessary components and features, “from romance [and] problems to really fascinating parody with references to pop culture,” and that it has the correct balance of situational humour. She expects Ramadan will be all about happiness and positivity and thinks it would appeal to a sizable portion of the population. “Hopefully this drama will bring in lots of laughter, a little bit of tears and a lot of excitement amongst the viewers,” she continued.
When discussing her writing process and trip in January, she had hinted at the impending drama. “Tirelessly writing at a stretch [for] four months nonstop — that’s how my workstation looked like. Ideating around the clock in a locked room, aiming to get done with 30 episodes (which is a lot of work for somebody like me, coming from a film writing education and wrapping up a story in 135 minutes).” “Thanks, Geo for all the creative freedom and genuinely enthusiastic participation. In my wildest fantasies, I could never have imagined ever penning a 30-episode serial. But what drives us forward in this world are obstacles and optimism. InshaAllah, shortly on your screens!” Khan exclaimed.
“This is a Geo 7th Sky Entertainment Ramzan play being produced by Abdullah Kadwani and Asad Qureshi. We’re going to Lahore to shoot for this and the director is Saima Waseem. When viewership spikes in Ramazan, I hope this is a good addition and people will enjoy watching it,” Amar Khan said in the interview as well.
