In this day and age, we look at television as a tool to escape from the harsh realities of life, hence, the popular belief that “media mirrors society” helps most of the directors and writers to hide their incompetence under the claim that “this is the what the audience wants to watch”. But they forget that media plays as much role in shaping the society as the society does in shaping the media. Being a believer of latter, Adnan Siddiqui decided to base his debut drama serial, Seeta Bagri, as a producer, on the Hindu community and their plights.

With the rising intolerance, it is indeed a difficult task to show the masses a lifestyle and a belief system which many might not be comfortable with, but Siddiqui, with his drama serial based on minorities, decided to go ahead simply because it’s the need of the hour.

The drama serial, which consists of 20-30 episodes, will air on TVOne soon after Eid. While speaking to HIP, Siddiqui said he’s treating this project like his first baby.

“What should one expect from their first baby?” he exclaimed when asked about his expectations from the project.

Written by Iqbal Hussain, Seeta Bagri is one of the most high-budget dramas in terms of production and that was quite evident when we visited the set during the shoot of their Holi sequence.

Why would one enter the field (production) with a risky project like Seeta Bagri? A project which might not resonate with the masses and might even face backlash for promoting Hindu culture?

“I believe that it is my responsibility, just like brand’s have a CSR Responsibility [ to bring about a positive change in the audience’s mind set],” the actor, and now producer, explained.

He added that it was time that dramas deviated from the typical ‘Saas – Bahu’ formula and spread love amongst people, whether it be minorities or no minorities.

“Look, we are shooting a play based on Hindu minority at a Christian historical monument and we ourselves are Muslims,” he made us realise the beauty of the situation. “It’s basically a puzzle put together by pieces of diversity.”

The first song of the drama serial, ‘Holi Hai’, is going to come out this Eid-Ul-Azha, and that too in cinemas before hitting our television screens. That’s one innovative marketing ploy since so many interesting Pakistani movies are releasing this Eid and cinemas are surely going to be the place to be.

The OST of Seeta Bagri has been sung by Sukhwinder Singh, who is a music sensation overseas, and the composition is done by Sajid-Wajid. The cast includes Sarwat Gillani, Bushra Ansari, Qawi Sahabn, Jibran, Shameen Khan and many more talented artists who are soon to be revealed. Adnan is enthusiastic and appreciated the support he is receiving by everyone.
