It was last year when all the media enthusiasts were delighted to hear the news of the renowned actor ,host, Faysal Qureshi, adding another feather to his hat of success: becoming a producer. In fact, Qureshi had made the big announcement on his birthday last year along with launching his production house ‘Connect Studios’.

And the production house is now all set to come out with its first ever production titled ‘Baba Jaani’. The drama which has been penned down by Faiza Iftekhar and directed by Ali Faizan Anchan boasts of a great cast which includes Saba Hameed, Madiha Imam, Faryal Mahmood, Ali Ansari, Sheheryar Zaidi, Afshan Qureshi and Qureshi himself among others.

The title of the drama suggests that the story line is going to be different from the run of the mill dramas and therefore Celeb Dhaba decided to get in touch with the producer himself for some exclusive details.

Since it was his first day on the shoot, Qureshi looked a bit unsettled albeit excited about his labour of love’s debut. The actor par excellence shared that since he was very attracted by the idea, he decided to make a drama on it. As for the story, Qureshi revealed that it is not a love story (thankfully!). “Accha family drama hai or kahani bohat maze ki hai (It’s a good family drama and the story line is very interesting).”

Qureshi, all praises for his team, also talks about the character he is going to play. He says that he will be seen as a very simple, altruistic, family man who is full of positivity. He went on to share that the drama doesn’t really have any negative role but the conflict occurs when Madiha Imam comes between his character and his love interest (who is perhaps his wife) Faryal Mahmood.
