With a view to break all stereotypes about the community, Zee TV will launch its first Muslim social drama Qubool Hai. The show, which is a mixture of drama and romance, explores the lives of three individuals, Zoya, Ayaan and Asad who are starkly different from each other and yet connected by destiny.
Sukesh Motwani, Fiction Head of the channel, said, "Set in a Muslim milieu, the show is a family saga that will cut across generations. It is a story of a culture which is so rich and yet most misunderstood. Muslims from all over the world have a long history of making significant contributions to the society.
They are diverse in nature, enriched with great literature, music, language and heritage that has a profound impression on all of us. This is a happy, cheerful and lively show that reveals the fine distinction between modernity and traditionalism. The show is going to be very atypical of archaic and old-school thinking. The manner in which Zoya embraces the codes of her culture and yet does not get tied down by the extremities that society imposes will surely make her unique and very relatable to the audiences. To ensure that we use Pavitra Rishta's leadership position, we have placed Qubool Hai in the 9.30 pm slot and created an alternate slot for Phir Subah Hogi at 11 pm."
Producer Gul Khan of Four Lions Production, said, "The show is about a journey of life, its trials and tribulations and acceptance of one's fate. It is said that God gives us the strength to change what we can and the courage to accept what we can't. Some have the courage and some don't have it in them to accept the change... but eventually, the journey to accept what God has given us is the essence of the show." It is co-produced by Divine Multimedia.
Zoya is a modern, vibrant, new-age girl who questions stereotypes. She is a girl who listens to all, but at the end of the day, does what her heart says. She knows and respects her culture but does not blindly follow rituals.
Ayaan is a happy-go-lucky boy who falls for every pretty face, but commits to none. Ayaan is very attached to his mother and step-brother, Asad, with whom he shares an endearing relationship. He does not carry any emotional baggage despite being part of a broken family.
Asad, the perfectionist, who has renounced love, only wants to become successful. Like Zoya, he too has abandonment issues stemming from the fact that his father had deserted his family when he was still a child. Asad had a disturbed and unstable childhood, but has managed to beat all odds to make a success of himself.
Qubool Hai premieres today and will be aired every Monday to Friday at 9.30 pm on Zee TV.
