Starring Sajal Aly and Ahad Raza Mir, the cross-border tale of love, family and loss, Dhoop Ki Deewar will stream on ZEE5 Global from 25th June, 2021.
ZEE5 Global, the largest video streaming platform for South Asian content, has announced its third Pakistani production and Zindagi Original titled Dhoop Ki Deewar.
The web series stars the celebrated Pakistani duo Sajal Aly and Ahad Raza Mir.
Dhoop Ki Deewar will be available for streaming on 25th June, 2021 exclusively on ZEE5 across all global markets and is a key addition to ZEE5’s already vast library of Pakistani shows.
Written by the prolific Umera Ahmed and helmed by Haseeb Hasan, Dhoop Ki Deewar fosters the message of ‘Heart Over Hate’ and brings forth a cross-border tale of love, family and loss. Vishal from India, played by Ahad Raza Mir, and Sara from Pakistan, played by Sajal Aly, find their lives interconnected when they lose their fathers in war and their common grief becomes a foundation of their friendship. Comprising a stellar cast of Samiya Mumtaz, Zaib Rehman, Savera Nadeem, Samina Ahmed, Manzar Sehbai, Raza Talish, Aly Khan and Adnan Jaffar amongst others, the web series explores the impact of martyrdom and war on the two families and how they realize that peace is the only answer. The show is produced by Motion Content Group and Hamdan Films.
Speaking about Dhoop Ki Deewar, director Haseeb Hasan said, “Dhoop Ki Deewar is a reflection of positivity beyond borders, religion and societal biases. The sole essence of the show lies in the simplicity of its narrative. In the show a subject such as a cross border love story has been dealt with so differently and has an underlying message of peace, harmony and joy of life. Our entire team including Misbah Shafique have put our heart and soul into this little labour of love and are hoping for a heart-warming response from our viewers.”
Writer Umera Ahmed said, “Dhoop Ki Deewar is very close to my heart. My inspiration for the story stemmed from the sole thought that no matter which country, religion or belief you belong to, at the end of the day the grief lived is the same everywhere and it is much bigger than you and me. It is a story of love, grief and loss that people across borders and overseas can relate to on a human level.”
Archana Anand, Chief Business Officer, ZEE5 Global, said, “Keeping in line with our exceptional Pakistani Originals productions, we’re proud to present Dhoop Ki Deewar to our global audiences. This gripping tale will not only strike a chord with viewers from India and Pakistan, but also with the entire South Asian diaspora present across the globe as well as mainstream audiences looking for powerful stories. The web series promises to steer a conversation and address several pressing and relevant questions. We’re delighted to bring to our global audiences a strong and powerful narrative starring the young and extremely talented duo of Sajal Aly and Ahad Raza Mir.”
