The actress further elaborated that the lighthearted play revolves around social issues in our society and every episode will deliver a a strong message to the audiences.

The play has a very amusing tagline:

Mazloomon ke liye baji, zaalimon ke liye rao, waise mai badi mastaani.

It has already been on the floors as 15 of its episodes are already shot. However, one question that kept disturbing us was that will Qamar be only seen in a boring police uniform. Fortunately no, as Qamar informed that she will be changing her getup according to the place her mujrim belongs to. So, rest assured, we can hope to see our fave star in many colorful avatars this time too.

Also starring veteran actors like Maira Khan, Nayyar Ejaz and Abid Kashmiri, 'Baji Rao Mastani' will commence from the first day of Eid and will be aired on Geo TV.
