Saboor Aly garnered much love and appreciation for her plays in a short span of time. The actress can be currently seen in drama serials Bhool and Gul-o-Gulzar. By the looks of the first teaser of Saboor’s upcoming drama, Naqab Zan, it seems that the actress will play a sexual assault victim in the play.
Naqab Zan’s teaser shows Saboor in a mehndi jora while she is inside an abandoned house. We hear her mother’s saying it is bad omen for a bride to step out of the house before her rukhsati. Somebody grabs her and she lays unconscious on the floor in the next frame as a soundtrack plays ‘sunehri chaand ko kalak lagi ha’.
According to a press release, Saboor met with rape victims and heard real-life stories to connect with their traumatic experiences. She opted for this role to build awareness about sexual abuse.
Directed by Adeel Siddiqui, Naqab Zan features Ali Abbas, Hajra Yamin and Ali Ansari in the cast and it will air on HUM TV.
