Mumbai: Indian television’s new heartthrob from across the border- Fawad Khan- who is all set to enthral his fans in India with his Bollywood debut ‘Khoobsurat’ with Sonam Kapoor, will be back on Zindagi with ‘Behadd’ on August 30.
The actor who charmed his way into our hearts with his natural acting and handsome looks as Zaroon Junaid in ‘Zindagi Gulzar Hai’ will entertain us with his role as the suave Jamal Ahmad aka Jo in the blockbuster telefilm ‘Behadd’. Tune into Zindagi on August 30th at 10:15 PM and get ready for the premium Hindi Entertainment Channel to premiere Fawad Khan’s ‘Behadd’ first time ever on Indian television. The telefilm, written by renowned author Umera Ahmed (‘Zindagi Gulzar Hai’ fame) will also have talented actresses Nadia Jamil and Sajjal Ali in central roles along with Fawad.
‘Behadd’ has a very intriguing and heartwarming plot that revolves around the complexities and dynamics of a relationship between a mother and a daughter and how their love for each other becomes the cause of their heartache. Behadd is a story of three characters, Masooma (played by Nadia Jamil), her 15-year old daughter Maha (played by Sajjal Ali) and Masooma’s best friend’s brother Jo (enacted by Fawad Khan). After her husband’s death in a road accident, Masooma’s life revolves around her job and her teenage daughter. After some years, Jo returns to Pakistan and becomes a part of Masooma’s life once again. While Masooma is happy to have an old friend around, she is pleasantly surprised to see Maha bond with Jo with great ease and comfort. Jo’s presence in their lives gives it a new meaning. For Masooma, Jo is her best friend’s brother but for Jo, Masooma is the woman he wants to marry. Things start changing when Jo proposes to Masooma and she decides to take Maha’s opinion about them getting married. But Maha ends up doing something that crosses all the limits and all three lives change forever!
Speaking on this, Shailja Kejriwal, Chief Creative, Special Projects, said, “Behaddhas been highly lauded in Pakistan for its story and performances. The film has a very progressive storyline that highlights the fact that there is a very thin line between selflessness and selfishness in love which if crossed can cause lot of heartache. It’ll be a pleasant surprise for Fawad Khan’s fans as he will be seen in a new avatar.”
Fawad Khan on his tele-film ‘Behadd’ exclaims, “’Behadd’ is an interesting story narrated very beautifully by Pakistan’s renowned author Umera Ahmad and a great friend of mine, the director, Asim Raza. It touches upon an extremely sensitive phase of a relationship between a mother and daughter and reflects upon the fact that how even a slightest hint of selfishness in emotions can ruin things forever. I play a character named Jamal also known as Jo, who is in love with an older woman with a teenage daughter. Jo is very different from other characters that I have played on screen till now. He is mature, understands the values of relationships and knows how to nurture them. I hope Behadd leaves a positive impact on the viewers.”
Will Masooma agree to Jo’s proposal? What would be Maha’s reaction to her mother’s second marriage?
Tune in to ‘Behadd’ on August 30th at 10:15 PM only on Zindagi!
