Mahira Khan is all set to return to television with ‘Razia’

Coming soon

Mahira Khan, debatably the Pakistan entertainment industry’s most popular face, has remained off the screens for the better part of three years after appearing in her last drama serial, Hum Kahan Ke Sachay Thay, in 2021. The award-winning star is, however, said to make her comeback onto the small screen with an Express Entertainment series that seems to explore the harsh reality of womanhood in Pakistan; Razia. Khan first released the teaser for the upcoming show last week. On her Instagram, she penned, “When I heard the story, I said yes in a heartbeat. Grateful to be part of this story… no less the narrator of it.” While the trailer itself does not reveal too much about what the series will encapsulate, Razia seems to be paving the way for an era of women’s rights in an age where the idea of female oppression dominates the local screen. Khan, who essays the titular role, portrays a woman who asks questions pertaining to the realities of what women have to endure in this country. While describing the project, she wrote, “There are important messages being told mostly lightly… and sometimes strongly.” The mini-series, directed, written by Mohsin Ali and produced by Hina Aman, also has Momal Shaikh, Mohib Mirza, Shahzad Mallick, and Parveen Akhbar in the cast.
