After the massive success of drama serial Do Bol, lead actors Affan Waheed and Hira Mani have become TV’s most beloved couple. Fans want to see them together on-screen and hence the two were offered many roles. Fortunately, we don’t have to wait as long as we did for Mahira and Fawad to reunite, as Affan has revealed that he has signed a project with Hira.
In an interview with BBC Asian Network, Affan spoke about his recent brush with stardom.
“After Do Bol’s phenomenal success, Hira and I were flooded with projects together but we had to turn down almost every project as they weren’t good enough. Now, I am doing this project with Hira Mani again for ARY Digital which is called Ghalti. It’s a great project and I hope it turns out to be as successful as Do Bol. This is what happens with success; you want every project to be a massive hit which is practically not possible,” Affan said.
In an exclusive conversation with Something Haute, Hira Mani confirmed the news and also revealed that the drama is going to be directed by none other than Saba Hamid.
“Saba Hamid is the director of the play and it is produced by Six Sigma Plus,” she said.
Affan also believes that he isn’t cut out for this kind of fame as it changes the equation for an actor.
“Trappings of stardom means nothing to me. I always say I’m not a media boy, I’m a boy in media. [Following Do Bol] People have so many expectations from me now. They have started watching my old plays; the views on them have suddenly risen. I don’t know how to deal with that and I’m still struggling. When people tell me that they like my work and I’m a star, it sounds so alien to me. But I’m just grateful to God and I feel very happy about it,” he said.
The actor is currently shooting for another drama serial with Zahid Ahmed and Sanam Jung where he is playing an antagonist for the first time.
