First look: Yumna Zaidi & Bilal Abbas Khan bring teenage romance to screen in ‘Pyar Ke Sadqay’

Yumna & Bilal

Since Yumna Zaidi and Bilal Abbas Khan posted a picture together last year, announcing that they are shooting for a play together, everyone was on their toes. Both the actors have recently done some dramatic and intense work (Bilal in Cheekh and Yumna in Inkaar and Ishq Zahe Naseeb) and hence it was a relief to see them sharing a laugh. However, the recently revealed first look of the play titled Pyar Ke Sadqay, we are more than happy. Fans of teen romance are in for a treat as a drama on this genre is surfacing after a long time on our television screens.

Written By Zanjabeel Asim Shah and directed By Farooq Rind, the drama features Bilal in a never-seen-before avatar with spectacles and a child-like innocence. He will be playing the role of Abdullah while Yumna will essay a lively Mahjabeen. The first teaser shows them dancing together while Mahjabeen hits him and Abdullah gets annoyed, later she accidentally topples him over as well. These cute squabbles seem to be the focal point of their camaraderie which will probably turn into a relationship.
