While speaking to HIP in an exclusive chat, the serial's male lead and renowned actor, Imran Abbas revealed that even after establishing a career in Bollywood, he hasn't forgotten his roots and his claim to fame - drama serials. Imran stated:
"I have been doing one film a year, and that's exactly how I want to keep it. I tend to keep doing dramas so that I continue to connect with my own audience as well. I've lately been offered several Pakistani films as well but I only want to do a film that has a cinematic feel. Most of the films being made in Pakistan are more like telefilms."
Imran, who is eagerly looking forward to the drama, will be seen portraying the a young man belonging to an elite family. The story of the serial, titled Mohabbat Tumse Nafrat Hai, essentially looks into how love changes his life.
Shedding some light on working with team including director Rind, he said:
"Farooq Rind has been doing some amazing work that is being appreciated by critics and viewers alike. So I look forward to keep exploring my abilities with new directors. My co-star Sajal Aly is undoubtedly one of the best actresses we have from the new age."
The actor also revealed that he hasn't yet gone through the whole script, but because the project offers a 'dream team', he grabbed the opportunity without giving it a second thought.
"I have worked with 7th Sky Productions during Tum Kon Piya, and have delivered Khalil Sahab's beautiful dialogues in Mera Naam Yousaf Hai. Even though I haven't read the whole script, I trust these people and I know their brilliant vision. So this serial is basically a complete package for me and my fans and I'm thrilled to be part of such a project."
Imran further disclosed that the serial would follow an intense love triangle of three young and passionate individuals. While the theme appears to be cliched, the actor begs to differ and promises us a love story like never before.
For now, Imran is busy shooting for Khuda Aur Mohabbat's second season alongside Sadia Khan and will also be seen in an important role in Karan Johar's coming of age drama, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. Sajal, on the other hand, has wrapped up the shoot for her Bollywood debut, Boney Kapoor's Mom, and will soon start promoting her debut Pakistani venture, Zindagi Kitni Haseen Hai, where she will be seen romancing Feroze Khan.
The shoot for Mohabbat Tujhse Nafrat Hai is slated to begin by July end as the makers are currently finalizing actors for supporting cast.
