Ace actor Imran Ashraf Awan has left no stone unturned in sharing glimpses of his upcoming venture Raqs e Bismil. The drama series marks Wajahat Rauf’s directorial return to the small screen. Featuring Ashraf alongside Sarah Khan in the lead roles, the former will be essaying the role of an action hero Moosa, details of which he shared in a previous Instagram post. “Let me introduce you to my next character “Moosa”, I have been waiting for a script since a while, Thank You Hashim Nadeem for giving me a chance to be part of your masterpiece script,” he wrote earlier, adding that Rauf’s wife Shazia Wajahat approached him for the role. Imran accompanied the caption with a picture of himself from the sets of the drama and his fans were left wanting more! Now, he has dropped the first teaser and it looks promising to say the least.
Imran earlier revealed how he was waiting for such a character and script for a long time. Well, from the looks of the promo, he seems to have done complete justice to the role. Clad in shalwar kameez with a piece of cloth tied around his head, Ashraf exudes major bad boy vibes. Recklessly driving an open-air jeep through a village locality, he arrives at a place where Sarah’s character can be seen sitting on a charpai with another man. While Sarah looks baffled upon seeing him, Ashraf grabs the man, pins him towards the wall and tries to strangle him, in what seems to be an attempt to win his love interest back.
The story, centred on Imran and Sarah’s characters, is about love and passion between two souls from two different worlds. It has been written by Khuda Aur Mohabbat writer Hashim Nadeem and is expected to go on air at the end of 2020. This will be Sarah’s first project after her marriage to singer Falak Shabbir. Teasers for Imran’s next drama Mushk are already creating hype amongst viewers. His big-screen debut in Mohammad Ehteshamuddin’s Dum Mastam opposite Amar Khan is also in the pipeline. The supporting cast for Raqs e Bismil includes big names like Saleem Mairaj, Mehmood Aslam, Anoushay Abbasi, Momin Saqib, Nida Mumtaz, Gul-e-Rana, and Furqan Qureshi.
