Yasra Rizvi and Yumna Zaidi’s latest drama serial, Dil Na Umeed Tou Nahi, is an attempt at shedding light on human trafficking.
A project by the Kashf Foundation, Dil Na Umeed Tou Nahi, is basically revolving around three different stories; of a young female cricketer, of child abuse, and of human trafficking, with lots of characters and the three lives coming together with each other eventually.
Yasra Rizvi and Yumna Zaidi’s are all geared up to star in their next serial about human trafficking.
A project by Kashf Foundation, Dil Na Umeed Tou Nahi revolves around three stories — of a young female cricketer, of child abuse, and of human trafficking, with lots of characters and the three lives amalgamating with one another eventually.
“All of the characters are victims of human trafficking. So child labor, child marriage, teenage women used for sex work or domestic slaves — all the struggles of these characters are portrayed and the story of Dil Na Umeed Tou Nahi revolves around the challenges they face being stuck within the cruel system and their situations,” said Rizvi.
Yasra further described her and Yumna’s character in the Dil Na Umeed Tou Nahi, “Yumna and I are characters living in an elite brothel and go to parties and social gatherings from there. So our lives, the characters who keep pushing us down that hole — namely Naveed Shahzad who runs the brothel — become very important.”
“Yumna and I share a very deep relationship in the serial, Dil Na Umeed Tou Nahi. Usually, two women are either sisters, mother-daughters, relatives. But these are two women who are subjected to misery at the hands of their fate and whose lifestyles are very different from that of a usual Pakistani woman. Playing this was very fun. Yumna is a very giving actor and I loved the process. The entire experience has been very rewarding.” Moreover, she also praised Kashif Nisar for being a phenomenal director, and how working with him was a delight.
Furthermore, Yumna Zaidi also commented on her experience in Dil Na Umeed Tou Nahi, “It’s a cause-based serial and has been made with a lot of care and sensitivity,” revealed Zaidi, adding that it’s nothing like the mainstream serials on television. This is one reason why I’ve opted to play the role of Allahrakhi — which is what my character is named. Her journey will be followed from childhood all the way till she grows up.”
Yumna also mentioned how she felt privileged to be working with Yasra Rizvi on Dil Na Umeed Tou Nahi, and how she admires her work. “Working with Yasra Rizvi is always an excellent experience. She might have entered the industry late, but she is extremely talented when it comes to doing justice to any given role whatsoever,” she said. “I really appreciate all her skills — both acting and writing.”
Yumna further mentioned that her decision to take on this role in Dil Na Umeed Tou Nahi was to spread a positive message for the audience and bring forward awareness regarding the issue. “I was initially really confused about playing the role of someone who eventually becomes a prostitute. But Allahrakhi is a story about a village girl and her struggle. So forming this character was an entirely different experience. I hope and wish that through this, we can convey a positive lesson to our audiences,” she concluded.
The drama also includes other popular actors such as Nauman Ejaz, Samiya Mumtaz, Wahaj Ali, and Omair Rana. It is also set to reach your televisions by 18th January 2021 on TV One.
