Last month Epic Entertainment announced the cast of its first project ‘Alif’. The cast is really amazing therefore hopes of the drama being a hit are quite. Alif is going to be directed by the veteran Haseeb Hassan so be ready for something powerful and interesting form. Cast includes Sajal Ali, Hamza Ali Abbasi, Kubra Khan, Ahsan Khan, Osman Khalid Butt and Sadaf Kanwal. It has been written by none other than Umera Ahmed: who is famous for spiritual stories that revolve around bitter realities of life.
Ahsan and Hamza have gained popularity because of their roles in Mann Mayal and Udaari respectively. Character of Imtiaz in Udaari was effectively the central role of the play. On the other hand Sajal and Kubra are actresses of substance and also have stellar screen presence. Differently put they are the most admired actresses of today. In Yakeen Ka Safar, Sajal’s performance was so engrossing that it never felt like that she was acting. Sajal has also won the award for Best Actress in 6th Hum Awards 2018 held in Canada. Naazneen of Alif, Allah Aur Insaan gave us an important lessons about stubbornness and results of disobeying your parents. Kubra did remarkable job in Naazneen’s character. OB in Baaghi as Kanwal’s love interest had given brilliant performance and now it will be interesting to note what type of role he’s going to portray in Alif. It’s the first drama of Sadaf Kanwal and we have high expectations from her.
All these actors have given good performances in their respective dramas and had been loved by the audience. The trio of Sana Shahnawz, Samin Hamayoun Saaed and Haseeb Hassan had already given us Mann Mayal and surprisingly Hamza is again coming up with this crew. This time they have teamed up with Chairman of IMGC Amjad Rashid and formed new production house Epic Entertainment. Alif has perfect cast, well-reputed director and exceptional writer that makes it promising and all signs point to its brilliant success of Pakistani drama industry.
