Azfar Rehman is a name, which is not unknown to anybody. He started off his career as a model then turned into a host and an actor, and is the most popular celebrity we have in Pakistan.
After his long-time stint as boy next door, Azfar Rehman has chosen Hum TV’s Aadhi Gawahi as his next project.
“This guy is basically negative,” says Azfar. “Nothing makes him negative, he is just a negative person. He thinks he can achieve anything on the basis of his money and power. His family belongs to politicians. My character wants to be with Sohai [Ali Abro] and reacts terribly to being rejected by her.”
He adds, “It’s an issue-based project and not like the regular love stories that Sohai and I have done previously. Unlike Tumhari Natasha and Kesi Paheli, we have no lovey-dovey scenes. It’s a total clash of two characters. I have loved playing this character because it has so many layers of negativity. He’s a powerful guy with a crazy, one-track mind. Sohai has also never played such a character before. It’s a groundbreaking project for both us.”
About the cast and crew of Aadhi Gawahi, Azfar reveals, “Ayesha Sana will be playing my mother and Saleem Sheikh plays my uncle. Both are pivotal characters in the drama. Uzma Khan (Jawani Phir Nahi Ani) is also in it. Momina Duraid is heading it and Fahim Burney is directing it.”
The drama has been written by Saima Akram Chudhery.
