Areeba Habib to star in ‘Nehar’, which will tackle the menace of dowry

Social Dilemmas

Actor Areeba Habib's newest drama Nehar will be around the prevailing issue of dowry. Habib was last seen in the drama Jalan. She will be playing a character named Komal in the drama. The actor also has started posting about her upcoming project on Instagram. Nehar is being directed by Ali Hassan and produced by Momina Duraid's MD Productions. The cast includes actors Saboor Aly, Osama Tahir and comedian turned actor Syed Shafaat Ali. Shared to a publication, Habib highlighted how the storyline tackles the issue of dowry. "This drama focuses on our national issue of jahez and the rivalry it creates. It is a major topic in the drama. It's not about any sister rivalries; it's about the pressure parents feel from the boy's family when they are trying to marry their daughters off," she explained. "Saboor Aly is playing my sister," Habib disclosed. "Osama Tahir and Syed Shafaat Ali are there in the drama too. It is being directed by Ali Hassan. I'm sure viewers will love the drama because of its different story. Dramas don't usually address the issue of jahez."
