Commenting on Zindagi’s latest announcement of telecasting Kabli Pulao in India, director behind films like Superstar & Dum Mastam and TV show Sadqay Tumhare, Mohammed Ehteshamuddin, who plays the lead role of Haji Sahab said, “This show brings forth the essence of love in the most unexpected and heartwarming way and showcases the power of love, the pursuit of happiness, and the blending of cultures in an inspiring narrative. It’s a beautifully written story that dives deep into the human heart. Kabli Pulao will hold a special place in my heart as this was perhaps one of the few times where I got the chance to be in front of the camera, playing Haji Mushtaq, after being behind it for many years. It is extremely overwhelming to see the love and appreciation that the show is receiving and it brings me immense joy to see Zindagi air this show in India along with its airing in Pakistan and truly connect audiences for this heartfelt cross-border journey. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of this and patiently await all the love and views from the Indian audiences.”
Lead actress Sabeena Farooq, unlike her recent stint in the hit show Tere Bin where she played a diabolical role, will be seen in a completely different and lovable character as Barbeena in Kabli Pulao. Talking about the show’s India release, she adds, “Acting in Kabli Pulao has been an emotional rollercoaster. The depth of the characters and the realism of the story is unlike anything I’ve worked on before. It’s a privilege to be part of a project that showcases love’s ability to transform lives. The distinctive storyline is beautifully reflected throughout the show and I’m certain that it’ll leave a mark on everyone who watches it. I can’t wait for the Indian viewers to embark on this emotional journey with us as Kabli Pulao immerses the audience in an authentic world that feels close to home.”
Director Kashif Nisar said, “Kabli Pulao is a departure from the ordinary, an exploration of love and life. Creating complex stories that resonate with the audience has always been my passion. ‘Kabli Pulao’ allowed me to craft a narrative that combines the richness of human emotions with the allure of culinary traditions. My mission was to create a show that remains faithful to the essence of storytelling. Kudos to Sabeena and Mohammed for meticulously portraying the raw and intricate emotions that love entails, their performances resonated with viewers on an emotional level, leaving an indelible mark with each scene. I am exceptionally proud to present Kabli Pulao to both the Indian and Pakistani audiences together as Zindagi conducts the grand finale simulcast for the first time ever on television.
