Cake director Asim Abbasi just released the poster for his much-awaited web series called Churails and now we’re even more thrilled than we were before.
“Hojayein tayaar, khwateen aur hazraat. Especially hazraat. Jald arahi hain kuch rangeen Churailein, aapki deep-rooted misogyny ki band bajaanay (Get ready ladies and gentlemen. Especially the gentlemen. A few rangeen Churailein are coming to bash your deep-rooted misogyny),” read the caption
Abbasi shared, “I am super excited about Churails. It has been creatively such a liberating experience for me, to tell this story as unabashedly as it needs to be told. The web series is expected to release on an international platform, most probably in the first quarter of next year. Cast will be revealed in due time!”
In an earlier Instagram post, the filmmaker had also shared that the journey of making this series “broke all of us into a million little pieces, physically, mentally and emotionally” and that “every female character in this series will be shamelessly unapologetic. Just like the good lord intended.”

500+ script pages, 150+ locations, 100+ characters, 75+ days of principal photography…. And finally it’s a wrap! Thank you to everyone who was a part of this insane journey – a journey that broke all of us into a million little pieces, physically, mentally and emotionally. I don’t know if the blood, sweat and tears will show on screen or if the end result will be what we had hoped it would be or if our audiences are even ready for this narrative… But this much I do know: a) hundreds of people have worked tirelessly for better part of this year, to help craft and visualise this story and I am indebted to each and every one of them. b) every female character in this series will kick some serious douchebag ass and be shamelessly unapologetic. Just like the good lord intended. As for my current feels, this tee (which literally translates to “eat your husband”) sums up just about everything. Thanks @swearuponcoco for the T and @aarij_1 for the pic. #LifeAfterCake #Filmmaker #FilmDirector #Episodic #WebSeries #SeriesWrap #GenderTrouble #EatYourMan
