Trailer for Fawad Khan and Sanam Saeed’s ‘Barzakh’ Unveiled!


Fans of the beloved ‘Zindagi Gulzar Hai’ stars Fawad Khan and Sanam Saeed have a new reason to celebrate. The much-anticipated trailer for their upcoming series, ‘Barzakh,’ directed by Asim Abbasi, has been released. This supernatural romance promises to deliver a captivating blend of emotional depth and mystical intrigue.

The trailer introduces the story of a 76-year-old man who surprises his estranged family by announcing his intention to marry the ghost of his first love. This unique premise sets the stage for a heartfelt exploration of love, loss, and the afterlife.

Fawad Khan expressed his enthusiasm for the project, saying, “It was amazing. I grew to love the people I was working with, and it felt like being at home. After having seen Cake, when I was approached for ‘Barzakh,’ I jumped at the opportunity. Asim’s work sets him apart as a very unique director whose emphasis is on character development in a way that is contemporary. Also, I’ve always wanted to attempt something out of the ordinary and ‘Barzakh’ is nothing ordinary. It’s downright experimental, and I love it. Asim and Shailja are a power combo. They’ve tuned into each other’s sensibilities and aesthetics. That makes the process all the more easier. Working with such a team is always a pleasure.”

Khan also acknowledged the contributions of the show’s team, adding, “Under Asim and Shailja, there are many other people who’ve made this journey memorable. Namely Zoobia, Hussain, Nabeel, Ariana, Yasser, and last but not least, Waqas Hasan. As a producer, how Waqas brought the story to life is nothing short of extraordinary, and his dedication to the craft is deeply inspiring. I’d like to keep the theme of the show a secret. It’s a family reunion under supernatural circumstances. That’s all I’ll say for now. Working with Sanam after all these years is still a comfort zone. I enjoyed it, and I believe in her skills. It always makes my job easy. I hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed the process of making it.”

Sanam Saeed shared her thoughts on working in ‘Barzakh,’ stating, “Being part of ‘Barzakh’ has been an immensely rewarding experience for me. The show’s premise, which explores themes of family, love, loss, and the afterlife, fascinated me from the start. As an actor, I’m constantly seeking roles that challenge me and offer a fresh perspective on storytelling. ‘Barzakh’ does just that, presenting a narrative that transcends conventional boundaries and delves into the realms of the mystical and the unknown. From the minute Asim narrated the story to me, I instantly knew that I had to be a part of this project. Asim has always been a person who tries to explore the unexplored, and this is why I have always been his fan.”

She further added, “What excites me the most about this is reuniting with a stellar actor like Fawad and sharing the screen with Salman Shahid, Sajid Hasan, and other actors whom I’ve worked closely with in theatre. Shailja as a producer has been an absolute dream to work with as always. Now, with the global release of ‘Barzakh,’ I cannot wait to take the viewers into the world of nowhere.”

‘Barzakh’ will be available for streaming on Zindagi’s YouTube channel and ZEE5, bringing this extraordinary tale to a worldwide audience.
