Bilal Abbas has recently been seen in the character of Taimoor in Balaa. He played a naive, straightforward and a simple man who is deceived by Nigar time and again. While, Nigar’s character which was played by Ushna Shah is truly treacherous and malicious, another character is set to hit our screens who is truly evil. This character is being played by Bilal Abbas himself, in Cheekh. His name is Wajih.
The upcoming drama, Cheekh is a powerful tale that is raising awareness and telling us to rebel against our suppressors. Cheekh as the title suggests means to shout.

It is preaching us to confront our suppressors and raise our voice before it’s too late.
The drama is being produced by The Bang Entertainment. It stars Saba Qamar, Bilal Abbas, Aijaz Aslam, Maira Khan, Azekah Daniel, Noor Hassan and others.
