ZEE5 Global’s first Zindagi original and Asim Abbasi’s most-awaited web series Churails is out now. The web-series is available for streaming on the OTT app ZEE5 as well as on http://www.ZEE5.com.
Already receiving rave reviews, Churails is the first original Pakistani series to be launching on ZEE5, the largest streaming platform for South Asians across the globe. Churails follows the story of four self-proclaimed Churails who come together to break some stereotypes and challenge the hypocrisy of patriarchal societies. The series touches on unspoken topics in society, including sexuality, child marriage and child abuse, #MeToo, colourism and more.
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. Speaking about the series, actress 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 connection. We’re glad that it’s going to be seen by people worldwide!”
Actress 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.”
