ZEE5 Global has launched the trailer of its first Zindagi original and Asim Abbasi’s most awaited web series Churails. Directed by Asim Abbasi of Cake fame, Churails brings together a talented cast starring Sarwat Gilani, Nimra Bucha, Mehar Bano, and Yasra Rizvi in the lead roles. The trailer gives us a first look into the story – a strong and unconventional narrative packed with gripping and exciting moments. ‘Churails’ follows the story of four self-proclaimed Churails who come together to break some stereotypes and challenge the hypocrisy of patriarchal societies.
Churails is the first original Pakistani series to be launching on ZEE5. The trailer is now available for viewing on all digital media platforms. Speaking about the upcoming thriller series, actor Yasra Rizvi said “Churails is a story of four strong women characters but it depicts what each and every woman deals with – not just in a particular country but globally. These characters have empowered us and I’m sure even the ones who watch it will feel the same connect. We’re glad that it’s going to be seen by people worldwide!”
Nimra Bucha said “Batool had me at hello. She was cool, fearless and unflinching. She was the friend I’d want to get me out of trouble. And get me out of trouble she did. Playing her has empowered me in lasting ways. We’re in the business of entertainment, I know, but this sisterhood of Churails, playing this part is my way of telling women that I’m here and I have their back. We’re all still living in some version of classic Greek tragedy but these Trojan women are going to kick ass.”
Sarwat Gilani said “Churails is about having a realisation of what all you can do as a woman. It gives an understanding, insight, awareness, and complete realness of life through the characters and the story. The story is very well written and fabulously directed by Asim Abbasi, he literally took our breath away with his work. It has been an amazing feeling to be part of the super revolutionary change that this project is going to bring. I think Pakistani media will certainly change after Churails. As a show, it has a lot of caliber and details to catch eyeballs at the international level.”
“Playing Zubaida has been a personal milestone of my career. She taught me the value of being a protector, the importance of sisterhood and she is, in essence, a fearless warrior who is so compassionate that seeing other women in jeopardy keeps her up at night”, said Mehar Bano.
Churails will stream on Zindagi by ZEE5 Global on August 11th.
