Zindagi presents a new drama, Ek Kasak Reh Gaee, that is bound to captivate audiences. Set to premiere on April 5th at 9:00 PM every Monday to Saturday, Ek Kasak Reh Gaee tells the story of a woman struggling to find her voice, break out of the cocoon of societal pressure, and find her place in society. The cast includes Javed Sheikh, Hina Khwaja Bayat, Taifoor Khan, Saira, and Naila Jafri, along with Sanam Saeed and Mikaal Zulfiqar as its leads.
Sanam Saeed portrays the role of a very progressive and confident girl, Paras, who lives with her mother Najma and her younger sister Sara under the protection of her orthodox uncle, Tayaji (Javed Sheikh), aunt Tayiji, and their two sons who are unable to accept her progressive ways. Her Tayaji and other relatives do not approve Paras’s way of life. According to them, a woman should be in a veil and stay at home. Paras stands alone against their orthodox thinking.
Despite the restrictions from her family, Paras starts working at an NGO with another self-reliant woman, Natasha a.k.a Bia (Hina Bayat), who soon becomes Paras’s mentor and guide. Bia’s life changes when Paras gets married to Bia’s brother, Shahriyar (Mikaal Zulfikar), who is heartbroken from a previous relationship. After marriage, when Paras discovers that Shahriyar has a nearly fatal medical condition, she stands by her husband and helps to save his life and takes on all the responsibilities of a wife and daughter in law.
Will Paras find the love and acceptance that she has been craving for in her new life? Will she and Shahriyar have a happy married life?
Watch Paras’ journey and the challenges she faces in Ek Kasak Reh Gaee, starting April 5th, 2016 every Monday to Saturday at 9:00 PM on Zindagi.
