Indian web streamer ZEE5 Premium disclosed its first original Pakistani Web Series “Churails” which will premiere on its platform in August 2020. Recently, ZEE Entertainment announced the return of its much-loved channel Zindagi, which used to air hit Pakistani Dramas in India.
According to the ZEE5 officials, Churails will be their 1st original Pakistani series from Zindagi, which will air on ZEE5 on August 11.
New Pakistani web series Churails is directed by the talented and critically-acclaimed Pakistani filmmaker Asim Abbasi. It aims to challenge the hypocrisy of the dominant and patriarchal society which is annihilating women and their rights. Asim Abbasi is well known for his direction in Pakistan’s officially selected movie for Oscars, Cake.
The story is about four self-proclaimed Churails, who opens a secret detective agency to expose their cheating husbands among the city’s elites. As their operations expand, they come to be saviors of abused, harassed, and mistreated women. The gripping and fast-paced storyline highlights numerous issues such as sexism, child abuse, and the domination of class & race.
“The story of Churails is about strong women embarking on the journey of self-discovery, empowerment, and sisterhood. I believe Churails is a timely show with pertinent themes that will resonate with the audience globally” said the director. Asim Abbasi also said that he is hopeful that the story will strike a chord with the audience globally.
“Zindagi’s commitment to truly original content that has a voice and can transcend border has provided me with the perfect platform to create a show like Churails” Abbasi added
The web series features the most talented and stellar cast led by Sarwat Gillani, Nimra Bucha, Yasra Rizvi, and Meharbano.
In an interview with a channel, one of the main lead, Sarwat Gillani says that the story is the voice of women. “The themes of women’s rights and societal issues will be portrayed as provocative realities, which will make viewers think that what is happening and how it can be fixed on a personal and social level,” said Gillani.
ZEE5 is the largest web streaming platform for the South Asians and Churails is going to be its 1st ever original web series. People are hoping that these web series will prove out to be a resurrector for the Indo-Pak relations on the entertainment grounds so that people of both countries at least can enjoy the pure talent from both sides without any halt.
