'Udaari' is a musical, yet dark play, which would see Khan playing a strange, yet diversified character.

Giving us some major hints to what Udaari is basically all about, and how he landed this project:

"I won't be able to reveal the synopsis, but it's a first timer for Pakistan. It's a very dark topic of child abuse. The law has just been passed and it's very relevant in today's light. Such initiatives are very risky, and kudos to Momina Duarid for taking such a bold step. I also believe that such projects are educational, people try to undercover and ignore such subjects, but it actually is a harsh reality of our society. So, it's an eye opener that way. Besides that, it has at least 10 to 15 original tracks, and has a Punjabi background; which makes it a lot of fun, and challenging for me at the same time!" said the actor.

Shedding some light on his character in the play and how he took a turn towards being the 'bad guy' from his back-to-back good guy roles, this is what the renowned actor had to say:

"There's no typical 'hero' or 'heroine in Udaari, the play has pivotal roles in general. My character is obviously a negative one, who's very strange, very dark, yet very diversified. Honestly, I am doing several projects which portray me being the ultimate 'dreamboat', I'm sure the audience won't expect me playing such a character. The only reason I took up the project, is that the understanding needs to be there and it's our responsibility as artists to highlight such issues."
