It appears that Saim Sadiq’s Joyland has inspired a spate of works focusing on intersex characters. After the success of Sar-e-Rah, in which Muneeb Butt starred, filmmaker Bilawal Hussain Abbasi is releasing Guru, a drama starring Ali Rehman Khan. Guru is the narrative of an intersex person, and it will air on the Express Entertainment network.
On Saturday, the channel’s official Instagram account posted a teaser for Guru. It emphasizes the protagonist’s double life, one filled with joy and laughter on public occasions but with private anguish. Newborn babies appear out of nowhere as you watch Ali’s new guise peruse children’s toys at bazaars.
Emotions such as agony, eagerness, and delight are all hinted at in the teaser, and the tense music just adds to the intrigue. Fans are curious as to how the creators would handle such a delicate topic and whether or not it would be accurately portrayed. The project’s expected launch date is currently unknown.
Previous Guru trailers have dropped hints that the show will also focus on issues like racism and inequality. Zhalay Sarhadi, Hira Khan, and Umer Aalam all play important roles in the drama.
One of the drama’s producers, Shazia, posted an Instagram gushing over Ali Rehman Khan performance in a “challenging” part. I am so happy for Ali Rehman Khan and proud of him for taking on such a tough position. Thank you for taking a risk with a fresh style that most people would be afraid to try, she wrote.
Shazia said the show is a “riveting story about an intersex” and that she can’t wait for people to watch it. She thanked the network for covering what could be regarded as a divisive issue by the general public.
The cast and crew of Parde Mein Rehne Do have taken to social media to express their delight at the actor’s “brilliant” new look. Hania Aamir re-posted the preview on her Instagram Story, praising her “brave, talented friend. “I can’t wait for everyone to see your amazing performance,” she added. I hope everything works out for you and the group. Guys, you have no idea what’s in store for you.
