Sajal Aly will play Umrao Jaan in an eight-part television series based on Mirza Hadi Ruswa’s 1899 book, it was recently reported. Another classic is currently being remade.

In the Pakistani version of the 1972 hit movie Pakeezah, Meena Kumari’s role would be filled by Mahira Khan. Hamid Hussain, whose production company, Action Consultancy, is located in the United Arab Emirates, is slated to produce the movie.

It has been verified by insiders on the production team that Mahira Khan will play the part of Kumari. Numerous well-known people are being considered for the future film in addition to the Raees star.

Mahira is on board, but she is only one of many stars we are striving for in the remake of this epic, the insider said. More well-known musicians are in discussions to appear in the movie. Leading South Asian actors are managed by Action Consultancy, including Aly, who will play Maymouna in Jemima Goldsmith’s What’s Love Got to Do With It? and Humayun Saeed, who appeared in The Crown and Resident Evil.

The company has diversified its offerings and forayed into funding and packaging foreign material for movies and television shows. One of the most well-known projects Kumari has worked on is Pakeezah.

The Indian newspaper Mid-Day said that Pakeezah required 14 years of commitment. According to a person involved in the film’s production, director Kamal Amrohi would count a day as fruitful even if just one shot was finished. One of the most costly movies produced in the 1970s was regarded as Pakeezah.

The film garnered nominations for Best Film and Best Director (Amrohi), while N B Kulkarni was given a prize for Best Art Direction at Filmfare. Kumari was also nominated for a special Bengal Film Journalists’ Association Award and won it. Mahira Khan, who recently released The Legend of Maula Jatt, is still in shock at its commercial success. In Neelofar, she will also be shown with Fawad Khan.
