A romance that will appeal to both sides of the border: Mehreen Jabbar’s Ek Jhooti Love Story

Director Mehreen Jabbar’s Ek Jhooti Love Story, featuring Bilal Abbas Khan, Madiha Imam and Fawad Khan among others, is ZEE5 Global’s second Pakistani Original. 

The Pakistani American director, Mehreen, a 20 year veteran of the industry, speaks to Connected to India about the web series releasing on 30th October.

A first web-series for Mehreen, this light-hearted family drama is different from her at times gritty and hard-hitting social dramas and movies, she shares.

Watch the trailer and catch the director’s maternal aunt, ad-libbing to Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma’s popular break-up song. You can't help but grin. 

Like her we too hope there are more such wholesome offerings, especially on OTT channels that cross national boundaries.
