Indian TV What's Happenin'

Zee TV’s latest offering – ‘QUBOOL HAI’

Zee TV’s upcoming offering, ‘Qubool Hai,’ presents an inter-generational family saga set in the Muslim milieu! It explores the lives of three individuals (Zoya, Ayan and Asad) who are starkly different from each other and yet their lives are beautifully entwined by the threads of destiny.

Zoya is a modern, vibrant, new-age girl who questions stereotypes. Ayaan, is a happy-go-lucky boy without a care in the world. And the angry young man, Asad’s sole purpose in life is to become successful. It is not often that viewers get a slice of Urdu-speaking people’s life on television. Qubool Hai is a mixture of drama and romance showcasing Muslim culture and values in a modern setting.

Talking about the aim of the show, producer Gul Khan of Four Lions Productions said,

“With Qubool Hai, I want to remove misconceptions regarding Islam in the minds of people. There are many myths like women don’t have rights in Muslim families, they don’t get proper education, etc. But I want to showcase, among many other things, that women in Islam have equal rights as men to get educated. It is a refreshing story that revolves around the life of a progressive Muslim girl and a modern Muslim family. The protagonist Zoya, is an intelligent young girl who derives her strength from the Holy Quran. The show highlights empowerment of women in Muslim society.”

The show introduces the vivacious Surbhi Jyoti as a lead protagonist, Zoya. Surbhi Jyoti is not new to the entertainment industry despite Qubool Hai being her debut on Hindi television. A spunky Punjabi kudi from Jalandhar, she is a very popular face in Punjab. With a background in theater, Surbhi Jyoti has also played the lead roles in a superhit Punjabi movie, ‘Raula Pai Gaya’ and a soap, ‘Kathdiyan Wange’ on ETC Punjabi.

Look out for Zee TV’s brand new show ‘Qubool Hai’ starting on 30th October, Mon – Fri at 8.30pm only on Zee TV, Sky 788.  Check your TV listings to find which channel Zee TV is in your area!
