Premiering 30th October at 9:30 pm (SGT), the show will view a Muslim setting through a modern lens!
16th October 2012, Mumbai: With a view to break all stereotypes about the community, Zee TV will launch its first Muslim social drama, 'Qubool Hai'. It is a mixture of drama and romance. The show explores the lives of three individuals, Zoya, Ayan and Asad who are starkly different from each other and yet their lives are beautifully entwined by the threads of destiny. Premiering on 30th October at 9:30 pm (SGT), the show will attempt to remove certain misconceptions that people have about Muslim culture.
The three lead characters in 'Qubool Hai' are Zoya, Ayan and Asad. Zoya is a modern, vibrant, new- age girl who questions stereotypes. She is a girl who listens to all but at the end of the day does what her heart says. She knows and respects her culture but does not blindly follow rituals. Ayan, is a happy-go-lucky boy without a care in the world. He falls for every pretty face that passes by but commits to none. And the perfectionist, Asad who has renounced love from his life, only wants to become successful.
Viewers are also eagerly awaiting the launch of Qubool Hai as it marks the return of the small screen's most wanted heartthrob, the lady killer, Karan Singh Grover in a lead role as Asad. The show also introduces two newcomers, the vivacious Surbhi Jyoti as the female protagonist, Zoya and Rishabh Sinha, in the parallel lead as Ayan. Surbhi is not new to the entertainment industry despite Qubool Hai being her debut on Hindi television. A spunky Punjabi kudi from Jalandhar, she is a very popular face in Punjab. With a background in theatre, Surbhi has also played the lead roles in a superhit Punjabi movie, 'Raula Pai Gaya' and a soap, 'Kathdiyan Wange' on ETC Punjabi. Rishabh makes his debut in acting after his initial brush with being in the limelight on MTV Splitsvilla earlier this year.
'Qubool Hai' is a family saga that will cut across generations. It is a story of a culture which is so rich and yet misunderstood the most. Muslims from all over the world have a long history of making significant contributions to the society. They are diverse in nature, enriched with a rich literature, music and language heritage that has a profound impression on all of us. 'Qubool Hai' is a happy, cheerful and lively show that reveals the fine distinction between modernity and traditionalism. The show is going to be very atypical of the archaic and old school thinking. The manner in which Zoya embraces the codes of her culture and yet does not get tied down by the extremities that the society imposes will surely make her unique and very relatable to the au
Watch out for Zoya, a progressive, uninhibited, modern and gutsy girl firebrand Muslim girl - she not only respects her family, but also defies stereotypes and hypocrisy in the society.
