Cake’s director Asim Abbasi wraps up his upcoming web series

Asim Abbasi

Award winning filmmaker, Asim Abbasi, who has given Pakistan critically acclaimed and much loved film, Cake, is back in the news after a long hiatus. He has recently wrapped up the shoot for his next venture and this time it isn’t a film; it’s a web-series. The director took to social media to spill some beans about it and we are already excited.



“500+ script pages, 150+ locations, 100+ characters, 75+ days of principal photography…. And finally it’s a wrap!” he wrote.

He thanked everyone who became a part of this “insane journey” and we wonder what kind of story he is trying to tell this time around that features so many actors and shooting locations.

500+ script pages, 150+ locations, 100+ characters, 75+ days of principal photography…. And finally it’s a wrap! Thank you to everyone who was a part of this insane journey – a journey that broke all of us into a million little pieces, physically, mentally and emotionally. I don’t know if the blood, sweat and tears will show on screen or if the end result will be what we had hoped it would be or if our audiences are even ready for this narrative… But this much I do know: a) hundreds of people have worked tirelessly for better part of this year, to help craft and visualise this story and I am indebted to each and every one of them. b) every female character in this series will kick some serious douchebag ass and be shamelessly unapologetic. Just like the good lord intended. As for my current feels, this tee (which literally translates to “eat your husband”) sums up just about everything. Thanks @swearuponcoco for the T and @aarij_1 for the pic. #LifeAfterCake #Filmmaker #FilmDirector #Episodic #WebSeries #SeriesWrap #GenderTrouble #EatYourMan

Revealing very little about the cast and the plot, Asim wants the audiences to get ready for the unexpected as he wrote, “I don’t know if the blood, sweat and tears will show on screen or if the end result will be what we had hoped it would be or if our audiences are even ready for this narrative, but this much I do know (that) every female character in this series will kick some serious douche bag ass and be shamelessly unapologetic. Just like the good lord intended.”

Asim also hid a message in his post with the tee he is wearing in the picture which has a statement in Punjabi written on it “Khasma Na Kha” about which he said, “As for my current feels, this tee (which literally translates to “eat your husband”) sums up just about everything.”

He also used two hashtags #GenderTrouble and #EatYourMan which are intriguing, keeping in mind the fact that we are still unaware of the genre of this web series.
