The multifaceted actress Mawra Hocane after giving blockbuster serial, Sammi, last year, is now all set to enthrall audience in a pre-partition period drama, Aangan.
The actress in her latest interview with Dawn talked about her character in the serial.
“I’m excited that I’m romancing Ahad [Raza Mir], Ahsan [Khan] and another actor whose name I can’t reveal yet. But I’ll be romancing three boys and [my character] happens to be the narrator of the story. She is, in a way, the protagonist of the drama,” the actress said.
The actress further added that there would be multiple tracks in the drama and the story would changed in every episode.
As the drama is based on the popular novel of Khadija Mastoor, the actress has done research for her character by reading that novel and reading the script a few times.
“I had long discussions with Ehtesham Bhai over what all we’d be doing for the character to reflect that era — the body language, the pace of it… Pace played a great role. So yes, it had more to do with what we learned on set rather than researching. But every time I’m going for a scene in Aangan, I’m really nervous. This has not happened to me in any other project. So I’m re-reading the script repeatedly to understand its depth. Because there’s nothing light about Aangan,” she further added.
For Aangan, Mawra Hocane’s wardrobe has been styled by Rubab at MD Productions. Her make-up artist, Babar Zaheer further enhance by after getting input from the director.
Directed by M. Ehteshamuddin of Udaari and Sadqay Tumhare fame, the drama has been written by Mustafa Rizvi. The studded cast also includes Sajal Aly, Ahsan Khan and Ahad Raza Mir.
