Azad is the story of exploring the freedom of an individual. It reveals how one is not free from his or her past and many other things.

Rehan Sheikh is not new to the world of direction; he has previously worked on Mohabat Ki Pehli Kahani, which was showcased at the 'Kara Film Festival' in 2003. Apart from this, Sheikh has been part of various theater performances where he tried his hand at writing, storytelling, and casting. These things are now helping him in his direction.

HIP wishes Rehan Sheikh all the best for Azad and his other future endeavors.
