“People do need new pairing now, I have worked with pretty much all the refined actresses of the industry. So I wanted to work with someone new , with new energy. When we sat down for the casting of this character with Momina Duraid, she suggested that I work with a new face and I said why not! It is very important to bring new people on the screen and give them a chance to do the major lead.”
The title of the drama is extremely powerful and seems like has a spiritual angle attached to it. We asked Imran what is the story line like?
“The story can be comprehended by the title itself, everything happens when it is the right time and when Allah wishes it to happen, nothing can happen without his will, and it is for our own good one way or the other.This is the basic concept of the serial. I am playing the role of Hashir, who is very positive guy, belonging from a middle class background. The story is very well written with powerful dialogues.“
Talking about Alizeh’s character he said “Alizeh’s character is the one who complains to Allah for her fate, when things aren’t going her was yet later she comes to terms with Allah later in her life that whatever happened to her was the perfect decision for her.”

He also seemed extremely elated to be working on this project ,” One of the main reason for working on the project is that it is been shot in Islamabad/ Rawalpindi which is actually my hometown so I get to go home at the end of the day. Normally when I’m shooting in Karachi I start my day from the hotel and come back there at the end of the day. So its a bit sad not to be able to see my parents and my family for many weeks. In fact I often do not get to go home for months. So I go to the shoot everyday with new energy, so that is another plus.”
