Upcoming drama Pinjra will be an ode to the late Asma Nabeel

The upcoming drama Pinjra, starring Hadiqa Kiani, Omair Rana, and Aashir Wajahat, pays tribute to late screenwriter Asma Nabeel, who also wrote scripts for Khuda Mera Bhi Hai and Khaani. The plot of the show revolves around the subject of parenting.

On Sunday, Rana posted the teaser to his Instagram account with the caption, “Nothing is greater than the responsibility of raising a child. Here we go. Bismillah. The next one to hit the air soon.”

Najaf Bilgrami directs the show, which is produced by Shazia Wajahat under the banner of Showcase Productions. The first scene of the drama introduces the family, and Kiani’s voiceover suggests that while all children are supposed to be equal in their parents’ eyes, this does not always happen. And, despite the mother’s desire for her children to achieve their dreams, there is visible tension in the family as there is screaming, smashing things, and discord near the end of the clip.
