Television may have turned a tad boring after the revival of cinema in Pakistan, but we've seen an influx of a lot of quality projects in recent times and it takes some zapping around to find your go-to drama serial. Junaid Khan, in a recent conversation with HIP, told us about one such project.
Khan, who started off as a successful singer, got bit by the acting bug in 2010 and starred in a play titled Kabhie Na Kabhie. Since then there has been no looking back for the talented actor as he has only managed to get better and better with each passing role. Having acted in numerous plays, Khan is currently busy shooting for a new drama serial opposite Hira Mani.
“I am very excited about it as it is a family drama and it is being directed by Danish Nawaz. Apart from me it also stars Hira and Qaiser Khan. It is based on a novel and the title is yet to be decided. Maybe the creators choose not to go with the original title of the novel," Khan revealed when asked to dish out some details about his recent Instagram post which features Hira Mani and himself.
Elaborating a bit more on his character in the serial, Khan said,
"My characters name is Talal and he is someone who is very mature. He is an introvert who is often misunderstood but one thing which the audiences would love about him is that he is always there for his family and wants to do what is best for them.”
This is the first time that Khan will be working with Hira Mani so we had to ask how was the experience of working with her.
”She is a lovely person, extremely decent and humble. Working with such an individual makes life really easy for an actor," Khan was all praises for the Preet Na Kariyo Koi actress.
Besides acting in the play, Khan has also sung the soundtrack for it. Junaid Khan is already an established singer who gave hits like Sab Bhula Kay amongst others and his recent appearance on Coke Studio just left everyone mesmerized especially his duet with Momina Mustehsan called Main Raasta.
Being a fan of his voice we couldn’t help but ask him what is next for Junaid Khan - the singer.
”Well, I am working on a solo album and I plan to release a few tracks very soon,” Khan revealed.
Besides this project and working on his album, Khan is also busy working on a suspense play titled Natak for Hum Tv. Danish Nawaz' untitled directorial venture is expected to air soon on ARY Digital and in the meanwhile, you can catch Khan every Thursday at 8 pm in drama serial, Marzi, on Geo Tv.
