Upcoming drama serial Cheekh featuring Saba Qamar and Bilal Abbas has left audiences intrigued with its first few teasers. While Saba Qamar is playing in a strong character, we were curious to know what unexpected role Bilal Abbas Khan has promised to bring to the table.
The fourth teaser has revealed that Bilal, infact, will be playing a negative role for the very first time in his career in Cheekh. Resting all the speculations aside about Bilal and Saba’s new on-screen couple, the teaser depicts a different story altogether.
Talking about his role, Bilal said, “It’s important to stand up against harassment and raise our voice against it. My character is extremely powerful, different and something I really did not expect to play this early in my career and that too with names like Saba Qamar and Badar Mehmood associated with it. My primary reason for signing this project was to raise awareness in our society that such incidents regularly occur around us and we cannot and should not let them be pushed under the rug; speaking up against all social evils is our basic right.”
Bilal Abbas Khan’s look for Cheekh
Previously we have seen Bilal in hit television serials such as Qurbaan, O Rangreza and the ongoing play Balaa. He has played diverse roles but always with a positive persona.
Produced by Fahad Mustafa and Dr. Ali Kazmi under the banner of Big Bang Entertainment and directed by Badar Mehmood, Cheekh is all set to go on air on 5th January every Saturday at 8pm on ARY Digital.
