The writing maestro Umera Ahmed has penned down the story of this web series inspired by true events. It follows the heart-wrenching struggles of people in the backdrop of Kashmir and Pulwama attack. It will narrate the story of families and kids of martyred army officers and soldiers on both sides of the border.
Considering the current situation between India and Pakistan over the Kashmir Issue, ‘Dhoop Ki Deewar’ seems like a much-needed ray of light in such darkness. Where Bollywood always portray the negative image of Pakistan, it’s good to see that our entertainment industry is trying to promote peace and show both sides of the stories.
Talking to Instep, Umera Ahmed shared:
Dhoop Ki Deewar is not a love story: it is a love-hate story based on the love-hate relationship between people of India and Pakistan. That’s the only way WE can write and read a love story between these two people. That’s what almost 70 years of unending hatred does to people and their sensibilities. And the most difficult thing for a writer in the subcontinent is to write an Indo-Pak love story.
‘Dhoop Ki Deewar’ will feature Ahad Raza Mir and Sajal Aly in the lead role and it will be the first we will see them together on-screen after their engagement. The duo was last seen together in the period drama ‘Aangan’.
The web series will also star Samiya Mumtaz, Samina Ahmed, Savera Nadeen, and Manzar Sehbai. Adnan Jaffer, Zara Tareen, Para Masroor, Hammad Siddiqui, Ainy Zaidi, Salma Hasan, Lubna Aslam, and Raza Talish are also included in the cast.
Talking to Instep, director Haseeb Hassan revealed that the project has been shot fulfilling the requirements of foreign streaming websites. He informed that it will release on carious international platforms that might include Netflix as well.
