This versatile singer turned actor has taken upon a number of characters over the short period he has indulged in acting and now, once again he's all set to get into the skin of his next character for his upcoming play, Ishq Main Kafir.

Saboor Aly will essay the role Fahad's colleague, one who becomes impressed by his personality and goes to all lengths to get him into her life. "She tries all she can to get him to marry her, taweez, dam duroods, black magic, just about everything at all," tells Gohar.
Dilshad Ahmad has written the script of Ishq Mai Kafir under the supervision of Umera Ahmed, shooting for which has started already.
Talking about the reason why Gohar signed up for the play, "The play has a very unique script but one which the audience will be able to relate to. Its something everybody has experienced in their own lives, been influenced by it. The drama has a moral to it, you do what you grow up learning and this is how Saboor's character will be affected, causing damage to everyone involved with her."
Gohar also talks about how the play gives him margin to perform in various shades with just one character.
