News of the Day: Feroze Khan or Arish, who’s struggling in a complex relationship with Aisha Khan (Uneza) in Woh Aik Pal these days, has now started work on Mehreen Jabbar’s upcoming telefilm. Jabbar will be returning to television after her tryst with cinema in Dobara Phir Se and if the untitled tele-film is anything like her previous work (we’re thinking Jackson Heights) then it’ll be a super success. Shooting for the telefilm has started with Feroze Khan and Sana Javed in lead roles and that’s something to look forward to as well; they are both talented artists who need to work with a director as solid as Mehreen Jabbar to be able to show their full range of performance. Ali Ansari and Shamim Hilaly are also on the cast.
We got in touch with Feroze Khan and without revealing too much detail he did admit that the play will be a romance; we’re just happy he’ll be romancing someone his own age! It is being shot in Karachi and it is bound to be telecast somewhere later in the year. The telefilm has been written by Dr Younis Butt and in Khan’s words is “light mood film.” We expect nothing short of entertaining from Dr Butt, who wrote the hugely popular Hum Sab Umeed Se Hain.
And this is turning out to be a busy year for Feroze Khan as he is winding up the shoot for Woh Aik Pal these days and has simultaneously been working on his next serial, Khaani, another exciting project which is expected to air after Eid. Khaani is quite intense, he shares, and casts Sana Javed opposite him. It looks like this is a busy year for Sana Javed as well; the actress will be appearing in Mehrunisa V Lub U opposite Daish Taimoor very soon.
