Composer Azaan Sami Khan is all set to make his acting debut in an upcoming drama serial. The singer, son of popular crooner Adnan Sami, and Pakistani veteran Zeba Bakhtiar will be sharing screen space with none other than Sajal Aly and Yumna Zaidi.
Khan released his debut solo album, Mein Tera, in February. He also revealed the tracklist and a cool album cover on his Instagram. The album adds another feather to Khan’s already fluffy cap, embellished by his work in films like Parey Hut Love, Superstar, and Parwaaz Hai Junoon.
In today’s competitive industry, where limited projects are being produced, it is difficult to land a role in a drama produced by a big production house. So, it is clear why when someone with zero screen experience is chosen, it draws attention. Khan is to feature alongside the renowned actor Sajal Aly and Yumna Zaidi in the upcoming drama.
The British-Pakistani actor and model Sabeeka Imam took to Twitter to throw shade at Khan. “So it seems like you need zero onscreen acting experience and you could also debut with both the amazing Yumna and Sajal,” tweeted the model. “Mujhe bhi itni hi achi luck chahiye [I also want this great luck] where I don’t have to earn it or prove myself first & it just gets handed to me on a plate!”
For other actors in the industry, it is pretty competitive to be able to earn a spot alongside exceptional actresses like Sajal Aly, and Yumna Zaidi. Meanwhile, Khan got the role without any previous acting experience, which has some people upset.
Even though the teaser of the show has not been released yet, pictures of cast members on social media are generating headlines.
Here’s what the others have to say about it!
Imam then went on to defend her opinion. “Aap log humein bura bhala kahen to woh sab theek hai lekin main as an artist koi opinion doon to main “jealous”? Salman Khan ki baat sach hai… “main karoon to saala character dheela hai.” [You can say all bad things about us and there is nothing wrong with that but when as an artist I’m giving my opinion to another, I’m “jealous”?]
The drama serial Ishq-e-Laa is directed by Amin Iqbal, is written by Qaisra Hayat, and produced by Momina Duraid Productions. The show will be coming soon to Hum tv, most likely later this year.
