Zee Entertainment Enterprises’ digital platform has released the trailer for a new original series, Kaafir. It stars Mohit Raina and Dia Mirza in lead roles and is set in Kashmir.
The trailer showcases the story of a lawyer turned journalist (Raina) looking for a human interest story in Kashmir. His subject is an alleged Pakistani terrorist’s imprisoned wife (Mirza) and her daughter who was born in captivity on Indian soil.
The setting is shown to be quite intense with the army heavily involved. There also seems to be an issue of identity crisis for the daughter who feels she is an Indian but her mother denies it.
The opening scene of the trailer is her singing the Indian National Anthem but switching over to the Pakistan National Anthem after one look from her mother.
The series, which is inspired by a true story, comes from the pen of Bhavani Iyer who also wrote Raazi. It is directed by Sonam Nair.
The series is also Dia Mirza’s debut in the digital world. She expressed her joy on Kaafir being her first step onto streaming platforms via a tweet.
It starts streaming exclusively on ZEE5 from 15 June, 2019.
