Sinf-e-Aahan was announced in June by Samina Humayun, who shared a photo of the leading ladies dressed in green shalwar kameez with dupattas printed with the project’s title, crescents and stars. Humayun Saeed and director Nadeem Baig were in the photo as well.
Writer Umera Ahmed had shared the first look of Sajal and Kubra in September. They were sporting the Pakistan Military Academy (PMA) cadet uniforms.
Not much is known about the story yet, but the drama is expected to be an all-women version of Ehd-e-Wafa, which too was a project by the ISPR. Ehd-e-Wafa starred Ahad Raza Mir, Osman Khalid Butt, Ahmed Ali Akber and Wahaj Ali as friends who start out at a cadet college.
The most recent project in collaboration with the ISPR was the telefilm Ek Hai Nigar, starring Mahira Khan as Pakistan’s first woman lieutenant general, Nigar Johar Khan.
Ek Hai Nigar premiered on October 24. Bilal Ashraf made his television debut with the telefilm as Nigar’s husband and Midsummer Chaos’ Khushhal Khan played her brother. It was co-produced by Mahira herself.
