After making waves with her acting in the critically-acclaimed film, Cake,Â Â Sanam Saeed is all set to make her return to televisionÂ this September with the upcoming thriller titled Deedan.
Last seen in Sarmad Khoosat’s mini-series,Â Akhri Station,Â the actress will be essaying a role which is set in the Northern Areas.
“Itâ€™s a story set up-north, it’s about their culture and traditions and highlights the importance and value given to family honour and the consequences of breaking certain codes,” Sanam revealed to Something Haute. “Itâ€™s a story of star-crossed lovers with some action and suspense.”
The posters look pretty intense and we see Sanam in a role like never before.
“I chose to play something outside my comfort zone and give this genre a try on TV,” she replied when asked why she signed the project. “I was interested to work with a director I havenâ€™t worked with before and I liked his approach and understanding of situations and characters.Â I think itâ€™s important to work with different channels, directors and production teams… and step outside the safe zone.”
Other than Sanam Saeed and Mohib Mirza, Deedan will also star Ajab Gul and Huma Nawab in important roles. Directed by Amin Iqbal, the drama is anticipated to air by the end of September on A Plus.
