It’s the digital age and Netflix has become a staple for anyone who wants to enjoy some entertainment from the comfort of their beds or on the go. Thus, it was no surprise that the platform soon became a global sensation. Now, there’s even bigger news in the offing, as Netflix Pakistan will soon be offering its first-ever original series and starring Zahid Ahmed.
Although not much is known about the production, it will feature the Zara Yaad Kar star in a lead role.
“I am going to divulge something that I really shouldn’t be,” Zahid told BBC Asian Network when asked about his upcoming projects. “I’m in talks with a group that is producing the first Pakistani Netflix original production and I have been approached to play the lead.”
While it’s still too early to know who else is in the cast, it’s truly an exciting development to have Netflix look towards Pakistan for original content. Currently, a few Pakistani plays such as Humsafar, Zindagi Gulzar Hai, and Sadqay Tumhare are available on the online streaming platform.
