Renowned drama writer, Umera Ahmed, has taken up the subject of tensions between India and Pakistan to raise awareness and put a lid over this hate-mongering.
Backed by Haseeb Hassan, who is directing and producing the web series. Set against the backdrop of Kashmir and Pulwama attacks, the script is inspired by true events. It includes a heart-rending narrative of people who lost their loved ones during war time, including what families and kids of martyred army officers and jawaans go through on both sides of the border.
“Dhoop Ki Deewar features Ahad Raza Mir and Sajal Aly in lead roles, while it has an all-star cast including Samiya Mumtaz, Samina Ahmed, Savera Nadeem and Manzar Sehbai. It will release online on various international platforms that might include Netflix too,” he said.
Talking about the script, playwright Umera Ahmed said “Dhoop Ki Deewar is not a love story: it is a love-hate story based on the love-hate relationship between people of India and Pakistan. That’s the only way WE can write and read a love story between these two people,” she said, adding, “That’s what almost 70 years of unending hatred does to people and their sensibilities. And the most difficult thing for a writer in the subcontinent is to write an Indo-Pak love story.”
