Written by Umera Ahmed, Laal will feature Bilal in the role of a navy officer. “I don’t want to keep doing similar characters and with each project I want to test myself as an actor. Laal is a completely new experience and the character I am playing – Behram – is a sophisticated, patriotic guy with a dream to serve in the navy and will do anything for his country. He becomes a naval officer and there’s also a powerful connection to the stone ‘laal’ and the message this telefilm has,” he said in a statement.
“I’m also very excited for this because it’s a tribute to Pakistan Navy, and I honestly couldn’t be more proud of what we’re trying to make here,” Bilal added.
The cast of the telefilm also includes Kubra Khan, Adnan Jaffar, Gohar Rasheed, Saleem Mairaj and Rashid Naz and it is slated to air on 23rd March.
