Sarah Khan, Bilal Abbas Unite for Indian Series

'Abdullahpur Ka Devdas,' featuring Bilal Abbas Khan and Sarah Khan, is set to premiere on Zindagi in February 2024, as Zee5 continues to bridge cultural gaps between India and Pakistan through digital streaming.

The release date approaches for the highly-anticipated series ‘Abdullahpur Ka Devdas,’ featuring the dynamic duo Bilal Abbas Khan and Sarah Khan. Scheduled to premiere exclusively on Zindagi in February 2024, the series, under the adept direction of Anjum Shahzad, promises a captivating narrative weaving together themes of love, friendship, and poetic drama.

The heart of the story revolves around Fakhar and Kashif, portrayed by Raza Talish and Bilal Abbas Khan, respectively. The characters find themselves entangled in a complex web of emotions, with the captivating Gulbano, skillfully portrayed by Sarah Khan, adding another layer to the storyline. The plot takes a fascinating turn as Kashif reveals his true identity, assuming the mysterious guise of the poet Devdas, and mysteriously disappears.

Fakhar, steadfast in his commitment to Gulbano, pledges to reunite her with Kashif, even if it means sacrificing his silent love. The series unfolds against the enchanting backdrop of Abdullahpur, promising viewers a riveting blend of love, deception, and sacrifice.

Cultural Exchange Through Zindagi

Pakistan and India, despite a history of complex relations, have witnessed a recent surge in cultural exchange, particularly in the digital streaming landscape. Zee5, the Indian Video on Demand service launched in 2018, has been at the forefront of this initiative. The platform features original Pakistani content under its Zindagi category, renewing cultural ties and fostering cross-border appreciation.

Under the umbrella of Zed Entertainment Enterprise, Zee5 regularly showcases Pakistani programming, reviving the success of Zindagi TV—a channel that introduced a variety of Pakistani dramas to Indian audiences from 2014 to 2016. The parent company’s commitment to featuring Pakistani content on Zindagi reflects the shared appreciation and resonance that transcends geographical borders.

Pakistani content has historically garnered acclaim in India, resonating well with audiences. Zee5’s initiative becomes a digital extension of the historical cultural exchange, providing a platform for viewers on both sides of the border to engage with compelling storytelling from the neighboring country.

As ‘Abdullahpur Ka Devdas’ prepares to grace screens in February 2024, the series stands as a testament to the evolving landscape of cultural exchange, fostering understanding and appreciation between the people of Pakistan and India.
